Look for me on the upcoming Thanksgiving episode of Ken Jeong’s new ABC hit sitcom, DR. KEN!  So happy to be making an appearance on this terrific show featuring an Asian-American family, only the third in primetime TV history — read all about the episode at TVInsider.Com!

Ken Jeong is an amazing actor, and a wonderful person, with an incredible life journey that has come full circle — from a career as a doctor, to a career as a comedian and comic actor, to a brand new hit television sitcom inspired by his own life.  I first had the pleasure of meeting him and his lovely wife Tran at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, as he was one of the producers and actors involved in Jennifer Phang’s internationally acclaimed indie sci-fi film, ADVANTAGEOUS, in which I voiced the character of Soon Yang.  So I was delighted to be invited to work with Ken again on his new sitcom, which has just been picked by ABC for a full season.  It was also great to be reunited with the lovely Suzy Nakamura, with whom I worked on an episode of SEX & MARRIAGE, a comedy webseries on Justin Lin’s YOMYOMF YouTube channel.

And what a terrific cast!  Joining Ken and Suzy as series regulars are Krista Marie Yu, Albert Tsai, Jonathan Slavin, Tisha Campbell Martin, Dave Foley, and Kate Simses — all of whom make comic gold every week.

This is a great family show with an incredible cast and crew and huge potential for the future.  Stay tuned for further details, and be sure to tune in to DR. KEN on Friday nights at 8:30 pm PST!
