On Friday’s Dr. Ken, Ken Jeong’s titular character finds himself dumbfounded when he hears that his boss, Pat Hein (Dave Foley), has supplanted him as the host of an upcoming banquet.
“I don’t know, I guess they wanted more thinking man’s comedy and less desperate man’s comedy,” Pat tells Dr. Ken with a sneer. “More cerebral humor and less of the rubber-faced clowning that is your trademark.”
After his boss leaves, Dr. Ken confronts his coworkers, nurse Clark (Jonathan Slavin) and office manager Damona (Tisha Campbell-Martin), who knew the bad news before he did, but were afraid to say anything.
“I wanted to tell you,” Damona admits. “I like a little crazy to break up my work day.”
