He is also currently the main medical correspondent for the Hallmark Channel’s “Home & Family” and, in addition, he recently won season eight of NBC’s “The New Celebrity Apprentice.”

After graduating with honors from Princeton University and the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, where he received his medical degree, he returned home to the University of Colorado for his residency in internal medicine. Then, in a move that shocked patients and parents alike, he quit his job as a doctor and moved out to Hollywood to pursue stand-up comedy and never looked back.
