Asian American comedian Ken Jeong left ESPN commentators at a loss for words after giving a shout-out to his wife. 

“Relax, ESPN”: Over the weekend, Ken Jeong appeared on ESPN’s “College GameDay” as a guest picker and surprised the set with one of his jokes, reported Mediaite.

  • As ESPN commentators Rece Davis, Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso and Desmond Howard discussed their picks for the late-night contest between Utah and UCLA, Jeong made a personal connection regarding his selection.

  • “I’m going UCLA because my wife went to UCLA med school,” Jeong said. “Shout out, Tran. You complete me, Ho!”
  • The “GameDay” commentators appeared surprised at the comment, but they also laughed after Jeong explained his joke. “That’s her last name,” he said. “Relax, ESPN. How dare you!”
  • The name of Jeong’s wife is Tran Ho. He has used her name in the past to make similar jokes. His first Netflix stand-up special, which was released in 2019, was titled “Ken Jeong: You Complete Me, Ho.”
