Johannesburg, 12 November 2019: Best known for his role as Leslie Chow, the potty-mouthed gangster in The Hangover film franchise, familiar face Ken Jeong will be serving up the laughs on Comedy Central (DStv Channel 122) this month as the Viacom International Media Networks Africa (VIMN Africa) brand announces the addition of hit TV show Dr. Ken to its long list of world-class comedic content.
Set to premiere today, Tuesday, 12 November at 20:00 CAT, the multi-camera sitcom is the brainchild of its lead actor and revolves around Ken’s own experience as a qualified physician prior to becoming a stand-up comedian. Ken completed his residency in internal medicine at the Ochsner Medical Centre in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Korean-American actor stars as Dr. Kendrick ‘Ken’ Park, an exceptional doctor with a questionable bedside manner and brutal honesty that often gets him into compromising situations. As hard as he tries to be a good doctor and the best husband and father he can be, Ken always seems to rattle his family, co-workers and patients with his thoughtless comments and narcissistic behaviour. Thankfully, Dr. Ken’s psychiatrist wife, Dr. Allison Park (played by Suzy Nakamura) is just what the doctor ordered, soothing hurt feelings and offering life advice to her misunderstood husband.
Dillon Khan, Vice President of Comedy Central & Creative Services at Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN Africa) said, “Comedy Central is committed to bringing its viewers new, fresh content to enjoy – particularly, popular, international shows that we believe will resonate well with local audiences. As part of this rollout, we have added fun-loving comedy, Dr. Ken, to our stable of entertainment. Ken Jeong is a great comedic talent and we are proud to welcome him to the Home of Comedy.”
Tune in to Comedy Central on DStv Channel 122 to watch season one of Dr. Ken – which premieres today, Tuesday, 12 November at 20:00 CAT and sustain your viewing pleasure Mondays to Thursdays, also at 20:00 CAT.
