Ken Jeong is a popular comedian known for his stand-up performances, roles in movies such as The Hangover trilogy, and TV shows like Community and Dr. Ken. In his Netflix special, titled Ken Jeong: You Complete Me, Ho, he takes the audience on a journey through his life and his comedy career. The title of the special is a play on words, referring to his wife's last name, and how he feels she completes him. Jeong shares intimate moments of his relationship with his wife, who was diagnosed with breast cancer early in their marriage. He talks about how her fight against cancer pushed him to pursue his passion for comedy and overcome his fear of failure.

Jeong's special is not just about his personal life, though. He covers a wide range of topics, from his upbringing as a Korean-American to his experiences working as a doctor before he became a comedian. He also touches on Hollywood's lack of diversity and representation, as he has been one of the few Asian-American actors who has had success in the industry.

Throughout the special, Jeong's energy is infectious, and his jokes are delivered with the perfect punchline. His style of comedy is a mix of observational humor, physical comedy, and self-deprecation. He talks about growing up in a strict Korean household, his overbearing mother, and his father's own struggles with cancer.

Jeong also incorporates his experience hosting The Masked Singer, where celebrities compete while hiding their identities, into his routine. He pokes fun at some of the outrageous masked performers while offering behind-the-scenes anecdotes about his interactions with the celebrity panel.

Another highlight of the special is Jeong's impressions, which include his take on his wife's southern drawl and his own over-the-top portrayal of people he's encountered in his life. He also imitates his parents, who immigrated to the United States to give their children a better life.

Overall, Ken Jeong: You Complete Me, Ho is an engaging, heartfelt, and hilarious special that leaves the audience wanting more. Jeong's relatable storytelling and infectious energy make it easy to become fully immersed in his world. His willingness to open up about his life, including his personal struggles, is a refreshing change of pace from other stand-up specials.

Jeong's special offers a fresh perspective on living life to the fullest while shining a light on the Asian-American experience. It's a feel-good special that reminds viewers to find humor in the everyday moments and appreciate the people in their lives who complete them.
