The last time Ken Jeong called in to our show, we got sidetracked talking about the triangle offense of the ’90s Chicago Bulls, so this time I wanted to make sure we talked about a new episode of “Dr. Ken,” which Ken says is the best episode of the series yet. We also discussed a potential crossover episode with “Shark Tank,” and why he insists on a level of authenticity for his show.
Ken Jeong called in to talk about tomorrow night’s new episode of “Dr. Ken,” his hilarious new ABC sitcom. Somehow we wound up talking about the triangle offense and our mutual love for the ’90s Bulls. Ken had me at “Jud Buechler!” Ken also talked about his amazing cast and how much it means to him to work with the great Dave Foley.
Dave Foley is a comedy legend who starred in the classic TV series “Kids In The Hall” and “Newsradio.” He’s now featured in Ken Jeong’s new series “Dr. Ken,” where he plays a hospital administrator who is Ken’s nemesis. We discussed why he’s fine with being called a comedy legend, my favorite Kids In The Hall sketch, how he trained to be a nemesis, and why actually being hired for the part is probably the most important factor in playing a character.
“Dr. Ken” premieres tonight at 7:30CT on ABC-7 Chicago.
