First at Four: Comedians eat super spicy food before telling jokes

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The comedy scene is heating up in Wilmington.

The venue is hosting Hot Shots Comedy: Comedians Eat Super Spicy Food.

Comedians including Troy Coleman, Zack Burk, and Jarrod Fortune will attempt to tell their jokes after eating extremely spicy food.

On WECT News First at Four, the host of the comedy show, Tyler Wood, and the chef who created the dishes for the show, Justin Vanderlaan, joined Ashlea Kosikowski on our set to give us a taste of what the performance will be like.
