ken jeongNBC Universal recently named Ken Jeong the spokesperson for their 2010 “Stand-up for diversity” competition. You might recognize Jeong as the doctor with poor bedside manner in Knocked Up, junk-flashing tiny gangster Leslie Chow in The Hangover, or as Señor Ben Chang on NBC’s Community. Jeong will host the final showcase of the stand-up competition, which is scheduled for December in Los Angeles.

In its seventh year, the “stand-up for diversity” program searches for diverse talent around the country. The most promising comics are given a talent holding deal at NBC. Auditions will begin at the end of June in New York City, followed by auditions San Antonio and San Francisco.
