  • Thank you, I am Ken Jeong, or as Ellen pronounces it, Ken Je-young.

  • Now it is an honor to be guest hosting for Ellen "Degelenergenes" (Deliberate mispronounciation of "DeGeneres")

  • So, but as you can see Ellen isn't here today.

  • I want to tell you exactly what she's going through, but you know my movie, The Hangover?

  • You know that?

  • Actually it's not that.

  • I just wanted to plug my movie The Hangover.

  • So it's doing amazing on DVD.

  • Ellen has the day off, so obviously I was asked to fill in because apparently she and I wear the same size suit.

  • Actually you know what?

  • My wife and kids are here today in the audience.

  • Where are they?

  • Want to give them a shout out?

  • Hey!

  • Look at them.

  • Oh, wow.

  • Look at the frown on their faces, huh?

  • All right, all right.

  • I didn't force her to be here at all.

  • That is my wife, if you go back.

  • That's my wife Tran.

  • And that is the apple of my eye, Alexa.

  • And what's your name, sweetie?

  • I'm kidding.

  • Zooey.

  • Zooey.

  • Don't get mad, don't get mad.

  • All right, all right, all right, all right, all right,

  • All right.

  • Don't worry, we're cutting all this.

  • I'll be honest, I brought them here because I'm a little nervous.

  • This is actually my... it's actually my first time ever hosting a talk show, so thank you, Ellen.

  • This has been a huge honor.

  • I've had an amazing time.

  • It's been incredible.

  • I have never, ever done this before, so I just gotta... I just gotta reference what I know.

  • So I'm an actor.

  • I'm a comedian.

  • And this is true.

  • I'm also a doctor.

  • So just for me to make me feel comfortable, I need you all to disrobe.

  • If that's okay.

  • No?

  • Yeah, it's true.

  • I was a general practitioner and I worked full time.

  • Actually I would... any general practitioners in the crowd?

  • Good.

  • Let's talk about them.

  • General practitioners, we are the dumbest of all doctors.

  • All right?

  • Like in general I knew nothing, okay?

  • If a patient came up to me, say, doctor, what... what do I have?

  • I don't know.

  • In general you're sick.

  • I don't know these things.

  • I'm going to refer you to a specificicst.

  • My whole point is I love doing comedy.

  • I'm living out a dream, but honestly I miss my patients, and I miss helping people.

  • So today, I thought I'd help all of you out with any medical questions you may have in my segment, Ask Dr. Ken.

  • Those are my real abs.

  • I had a sit-up coach.

  • Where is Adrienne Lee?

  • My question was, why do some Asians get Asian glow, and is it dangerous?

  • Got it, why do some Asians get Asian glow, or like the Asian flush if you will.

  • Like basically it is due to a lack of an enzyme called acetaldehyde dehydrogenase, which metabolizes alcohol in the body.

  • And when you have an accumulation of said substance, you can get that Asian glow, or in American terms looks like a tomato.

  • So it's... and but just to be clear, I can also answer non-Asian medical questions.

  • I just wanted to throw that out there.

  • I don't want everyone to assume that's my only area of expertise.

  • So you know.

  • I help out whites.

  • Yup, yup. Thank you.

  • Thank you.

  • Thank you, Adrienne.

  • Keep it real, Adrienne.

  • All right.

  • So where is Mafa?

  • It's actually Mafa.

  • Mafa.

  • That's what I said.

  • I said that.

  • Hi Dr. Ken Jeong.

  • Hi, Mafa.

  • Hi, my question is, what is your medical opinion on medicinal use of cannabis or marijuana?

  • Yes.

  • Next question?

  • I have some more in the back of my Camry.

  • Now, where is Huijeong Hong.

  • Again, this doesn't have to be an Asian question.

  • Hello Dr. Ken Jeong.

  • My question is, I'm wondering why I started to sweat only half side of my face when I eat really spicy food.

  • Excuse me for a second.

  • Web M.D. Half my face...

  • Sweat...

  • Oh, we're out of time.

  • Sorry, yahhh!

  • Good job!

Thank you, I am Ken Jeong, or as Ellen pronounces it, Ken Je-young.
