Pala CA— Pala Casino Spa & Resort is excited to announce the addition of Ken Jeong to the 2019 summer concert lineup in the Starlight Theater on Saturday, August 24, 2019 at 7:30pm.
Actor, producer and writer Ken Jeong, known for his scene stealing abilities, has established him-self as one of today’s top comedic stars. 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.
Since his feature film debut playing the doctor in KNOCKED UP in 2007, Jeong has gone on to star in a number of memorable roles in a series of successful comedies. In 2008, Jeong had his first major 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.
Jeong returns to his stand-up roots for his first-ever Netflix comedy special, “Ken Jeong: You Com-plete Me, Ho” which launched globally on February 14, 2019. Filmed at the Ice House Comedy Club in Pasadena, California, where Jeong first got his start in comedy, the special reflects on how Jeong went from being a doctor to a comedy superstar and 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 dedicates his spare time to volunteering with Stand Up 2 Cancer, which is a cause very dear to his heart.
