Friends and fans of Talk Radio 102.3 host Wally Witkowski are expected to turn out for "One Last Laugh for the Big Guy" tonight, May 16, at The Comedy Catch, 3224 Brainerd Road.

Witkowski was technically half of "The Village Idiots" on WGOW-FM, though co-host Jim Reynolds jokes on the station's website that a 50/50 split is debatable. Witkowski died April 8 at age 59.

Nationally known comedian Spanky Brown will headline the show, which starts at 7:30 p.m. Local comedians, including Big Ed Caylor, are also slated to perform. The show has a PG rating.

Tickets are $10, and 100 percent of the box-office take will be donated to the family.

Performing Friday through Sunday, May 17-19, will be Nashville-based comedian Chris Killian. His shows starts at 8 p.m. Friday ($14 admission), 7 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday ($14) and 7:30 p.m. Sunday ($9).
