Jeong most recently starred in Charlie Day’s Fool's Paradise, alongside Day, Adrien Brody, Kate Beckinsale, Jason Sudeikis, John Malkovich, Ray Liotta, and more. The film is a satirical comedy about a down-on-his-luck publicist (Jeong) who discovers a recently released mental health patient (Day) who looks just like a misbehaving movie star. The publicist subs him into a film, creating a new star. But fame and fortune are not all they are cracked up to be. The comedy was released theatrically on May 12th. The actor will soon be seen in AppleTV+’s global hit comedy “The Afterparty,” hitting the platform on July 12th. Ken will be featured as a series regular in Season 2 of the hit show from Oscar winners Chris Miller and Phil Lord. He will star alongside Elizabeth Perkins, Zach Woods, Paul Walter Hauser, Poppy Liu, Anna Konkle, Jack Whitehall and Vivian Wu, as well as returning stars Tiffany Haddish, Sam Richardson and Zoë Chao. Season 2 will revolve around a murder at a wedding, which Richardson and Chao taking on lead duties solving the crime, with Haddish back as Detective Danner.
It was also recently announced that Peacock will be producing a film based on “Community,” the hit comedy that Jeong starred on from 2009-2015. Additionally, Ken is currently in production for MY SPY 2, an action comedy sequel written by Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber and directed by Peter Segal that will be released on Prime Video.
Jeong can currently be seen as a panelist on “The Masked Singer,” the hit show that received an Emmy nomination in the category of “Outstanding Competition Program” in 2020. Jeong is also the host and executive producer of “I Can See Your Voice,” as well as a panelist on “The Masked Dancer.” We’re calling Wednesday “Kensday.” The actor can recently be seen in Mike Meyers’ Netflix limited series “The Pentaverate,” Will Arnett’s “Murderville,” and Comedy Central’s workplace comedy OUT OF OFFICE.
Prior to headlining “Kensday” on FOX, Jeong starred on ABC’s “Dr. Ken”, where he was the creator, writer, and Executive Producer. He also was a series regular on the critically acclaimed NBC show “Community” from 2009-2015, which won the Critics' Choice Award for Best Comedy Series in 2012. In 2015, Jeong directed an ESPN 30 for 30 documentary Student Athlete, and he also starred in and produced the Sundance award-winning film Advantageous which received an Independent Spirit Award nomination.
In addition to his work on “Dr. Ken” and “Community,” the actor can be seen on TV hits such as “The Office”, “Entourage”, and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” In 2008, Jeong had his first major film role opposite Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott as the villain in David Wain's Role Models. That same year he also appeared in the cult comedy hits Pineapple Express and Step Brothers. In May of 2009, Jeong appeared as the Asian-mobster “Mr. Chow” in the sleeper-hit comedy The Hangover also starring Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis, which earned Jeong an MTV Movie Award in 2010, and in which the film itself won The Golden Globe for Best Comedy/Musical and Critics' Choice Award for “Best Comedy” in 2010. The film was the highest-grossing R-rated comedy to date, with over $467 million worldwide, only to be trumped by The Hangover Part II, which grossed $581 million worldwide. Jeong reprised his iconic role in The Hangover Part III. His other film credits include Crazy Rich Asians, Ride Along 2, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Couples Retreat, Goosebumps 2 and Tom & Jerry among a steady list of roles.
Jeong has lent his voice to a plethora of animated films and was recently heard in Netflix’s Oscar- Nominated Over The Moon, Warner Brothers’ SCOOB, and Disney’s Lady and the Tramp. Jeong’s other voice over credits include “The Casagrandes”, Wonder Park, and My Little Pony, among a lengthy list.
In February 2019, Jeong returned to his stand-up roots for his first-ever hit Netflix comedy special, “Ken Jeong: You Complete Me, Ho”, which earned him a People’s Choice nomination for “The Com- edy Act of 2019.” Filmed at The Ice House Comedy Club in Pasadena, California, where Jeong first got his start in comedy, the special reflects on how he went from being a doctor to a comedy superstar. He opens up about how his wife’s courageous battle with breast cancer led to him starring in one of the biggest comedy franchises of all time, The Hangover, and more recently, Crazy Rich Asians.
Jeong’s career path started off on a different course. He earned his undergraduate degree at Duke University and went on to get his medical degree at the University of North Carolina. Jeong completed his Internal Medicine residency in New Orleans all the while developing his comedy. In 1995, Jeong won the Big Easy Laff Off. The competition, which was judged by former NBC President Brandon Tartikoff and Improv founder Budd Friedman, turned out to be his big break as Tartikoff and Friedman urged Jeong to head to Los Angeles.
Jeong dedicates his spare time to volunteering with Stand Up 2 Cancer, which is a cause very close to his heart. Ken has also been very outspoken on the rise in racism and hate crimes against the AAPI community in the last year. He is using his platform to call attention to these issues and advocate for change in hopes of having a lasting impact. He currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife and twin daughters.
