Ken Jeong gives medical attention to fan during stand-up show
Ken Jeong provided medical attention to an audience member in the middle of his stand-up comedy show in Phoenix.

The actor, a trained physician and former star of ABC's Dr. Ken, hopped off the stage and rushed over to a woman who appeared to be suffering from a seizure, TMZ reported. Jeong first believed he was being heckled by someone from the audience, but then realized what was happening and quickly provided aid.

Jeong was joined by an EMT who was also in the audience and stayed with the woman until paramedics arrived. He then continued on with his stand-up show.

"It's a wonderful story. It was such perfect timing: Ken just jumped from the stage to help," audience member Heather Holmberg said in an interview with USA Today.

"He couldn't see what was going on with the lights. He thought he was being heckled. He was playing with them from the stage for a second," Holmberg continued "And it was like, 'No, no, no. We need you!' He realized there was an issue, and he came over."

NBC has announced it is planning a 2-hour special called ABBA: Thank You for the Music, An All-Star Tribute, in December.

The Swedish pop stars -- who are known for hits like "Dancing Queen," "Mamma Mia," "The Winner Takes It All" and "Take a Chance On Me" -- announced last month they had reunited after years of estrangement and recorded new music.

ABBA broke up more than three decades ago, but its music remains popular. Its songs make up the foundation for the stage musical Mamma Mia! and its film adaptation, as well as the upcoming movie musical Mamma Mia!: Here We Go Again.
