So be prepared, y’all. Be prepared. ABC’s new show Dr. Ken is about to prescribe you some good ol’ hearty laughter. The show stars real life doctor turned actor/comedian Ken Jeong, Suzy Nakamura, Krista Marie Yu, Albert Tsai, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Jonathan Slavin, Kate Simses, and Dave Foley. This show is gonna be legit or as Ken would say, “on fleek!” And trust me, I know. I’ve been going to the live tapings and laughing my ass off every time.
As an avid supporter of Asian Americans in media for over a decade, I’m THRILLED about this time we’re living in with Dr. Ken, Fresh Off the Boat, and ‘All the Asians on TV’ this Fall. So when I was invited to visit the set of Dr. Ken a few weeks ago, it was pretty awesome to hear Ken’s heart and vision for the show along with the entire cast acknowledging the show’s significance for the Asian American community and their 100% effort to make this show the best show it can be. Michael Aushenker of the Palisadian-Post has a nice write up with quotes from our set visit: ‘Ken Jeong: Man on a Wire.’
This was a fun day. Thank you, ‘Dr Ken,’ ABC, and Sony!
If you’re in LA, they actually still have half a season left of tapings and YOU can be part of the live audience! Free tickets are available on tvtickets.com. For the rest of you, tune in or set your DVR! I can’t wait for you guys to watch this show!
