Ken Jeong plays a doctor on TV, a doctor in the movies, and a doctor in real life (he earned his medical degree from the University of North Carolina and practiced internal medicine).

Which makes him the perfect candidate to film a video taking Twitter questions from people who need advice from a physician, particularly if they don’t know whether they have a hangover or whether they’re thinking about just tearing off a skin tag that’s grown underneath their eye.

Jeong’s bedside manner can best be described as eager to help unless you ask a dumb question, after which he’ll mock you until you wish Congress would just make a new law stating that nobody can ever go to the doctor again.

(Which they might be doing.)

Legit medical advice from a comedian who also happens to have a medical degree seems like a smart, entertaining way to get some answers to all of your body’s questions. Especially if someone is in desperate need to get rid of their hiccups, and the only person that can help you is this man.
