He certainly got people howling as Mr. Chow in “The Hangover” movie trilogy. He also stole many scenes as Goh Wye Mun on “Crazy Rich Asians.” Now he wants to leave ’em laughing in Flushing.

What a hilarious scenario for a doctor!

Ken Jeong will bring his stand-up comedy act to Queens College’s Colden Auditorium on Sunday, Dec. 9, at 7 p.m.

The audience can expect some pokes at the Trump administration, funny observations on current events, jerky body tics, wacky dancing, outrageous accents, and plenty of satire about Asian culture versus American culture.

There won’t be much medical advice, though.

A Korean-American who grew up in North Carolina, Jeong is currently on a national tour, honing his humorous side as an actor, producer, and writer. It’s funny because he’s an internist by training. His career took a radical turn in 1995, when he won the “Big Easy Laff Off,” an amateur comedy competition in New Orleans, where he was practicing medicine. Two of the judges – former NBC Entertainment President Brandon Tartikoff and Improv Comedy Club founder Bud Friedman – told him to head to Hollywood.

Soon thereafter, Jeong was performing regularly at comedy clubs in Los Angeles and getting gigs on television shows such as “The Office” and “Entourage.” In 2006, he joined forces with another jokester, Mike O’Connell, to create “Million Dollar Strong,” a spoof rap song that has amassed more than 1 million views.

Other entertainment achievements include voice work for animated films, co-producing ABC’s “Dr. Ken,” and even directing a documentary, “Student Athlete,” for ESPN.

Tickets run from $25 to $50. Colden Auditorium is located at 153-49 Reeves Ave., about one block south of the Long Island Expressway.
