Kimmel Sued by Guy Who

Put His Junk in Mousetrap

6/1/2007 9:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a lawsuit filed by a man who doesn't think Jimmy Kimmel, Adam Corolla and Johnny Knoxville are funny.
Jimmy Kimmel, Adam Corolla, Johnny Knoxville
Perry Caravello, the one-time "star" of a practical joke flick, filed suit today in Los Angeles County Superior Court claiming, among other things, the three funnymen owe him $10.5 million.

For several years, Caravello was duped into believing he was going to play the lead role in the faux action flick "Windy City Heat." Every actor and member of the crew was in on the joke -- except Caravello. The final product, er, joke, aired in 2003 on Comedy Central.

In his suit, Caravello claims the defendants "falsely and fraudulently" represented the project, and promised him, among other things, that he "would be paid 10 million dollars if he placed his penis in a mousetrap." Caravello says he "was severely injured when the trap literally went on his manhood." Ouch. To add insult to injury, Caravello says he's suffered "humiliation and emotional trauma" because the video has circulated the Internet. Talk about viral.

Caravello is suing for the $10.5 million that he says he is owed, plus damages and medical expenses.

A call to Kimmel and Corolla's rep was not immediately returned.

Anyone dumb enough to stick their pecker in a mouse trap isn't going to hang on to $10.5 million for long. Dumbass will probably spend it all in one night with some strippers.

low blow    

The guy is partially retarded from an accident. I just read the story. I'm shocked Bobcat had involvement in that too. I guess when these comedians are not funny anymore they go and pick on the retarded kid. Good I hope this guy gets something. Prank would have been funny or a normal individual. Adam is not funny and Jimmy Kimell has a small p p.

Well, as quoted by someone famous "there's a sucker born every minute". If the dude made the choice to put his privates in a mouse trap then he got what he played for. Nothing owed and nothing paid.

So, he's suing in part for "humiliation and emotional trauma" because the video circulated around the internet. Yet, if this was an actual movie to be released (like he was told), tons of people would have seen it otherwise. Makes a lot of sense, no? *cough*

glad Adam's show is defunct    

More highbrow humor from Adam Carolla,- about what we'd expect out of him and kimmel.... maybe they'll talk Paris into putting plaster in her p*ssy......they'd think Paster-of-Paris was funny. I guess they got tired of calling the tobacco store to see if they have "Prince Albert in a can"....
