How Ken Jeong Turned Wife’s Cancer Battle Into Comedy on ‘Dr. Ken’

Every Friday, Ken Jeong brings the laugh’s to his hit ABC show, “Dr. Ken.”

Ken joined “Extra’s” Charissa Thompson at Universal Studios Hollywood, where he said tonight’s episode is "probably our funniest episode.”

Next week, the show dives into a topic that hits close to home — it was based on his real-life wife’s battle with breast cancer. He said, “She’s cancer-free and she’s doing great. To execute it the way we did, it was comic and heartfelt, a lot of tears shed.”

Catch “Dr. Ken” Friday nights at 8:30 p.m. on ABC.
