King Kong Bundy puts comedy on the mat tonight at the Colosseum

If World Wrestling Federation legend King Kong Bundy were a stand-up comedian, what would he joke about?

Or what it's like to pull on Hulk Hogan's skullette?

Well, Bundy is a comedian now, and fellow funnyman Jeff Collins says the dude is pretty good.

Bundy will host the "Heavyweights of Comedy" event at 9:30 p.m. Friday at the Colosseum, 1206 N. Union St., Wilmington, which Collins organized.

"He starts off talking about how big and ugly he is," said Collins, a local comic who will also perform tonight. "He looks a little different now because

Also on the bill are Mike Petro, from the NBC show "Last Comic Standing," and Jimmy Graham, the self-proclaimed "Roundboy of Comedy" who had a role in the

Admission is $10. Doors open at 8:30 with free food such as pizza and wings (should you aspire to attaining Bundy and Graham's build). For details, call
