Heather Holmberg, who was in the audience at the time, took to Twitter to tweet about what it was like to witness the comedian’s bravery and quick thinking: "A woman had a medical emergency during the show. Ken thinks it’s heckling, when people are asking for his help. He jumps off stage to assist. An EMT helped, too. Then on with the show! Great night! He is gracious and grateful...AND flipping funny!"
