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.

That kind of stupidity has really got to hurt! 10 million dollars? Who would believe that someone would pay 10 million dollars for an act as senseless as that? Ouch.

Never even heard of the numb nut Perry Carvello. And, now we know why. Appears the idiot is unable to walk and chew gum, and that was long before he was stupid enough to stick his manhood in a mouse trap.

I don't know how Adam Corolla ever made it on radio, let alone television. He is the least funny guy in entertainment and Jimmy Kimmel is a right wing prick. Not smart to put you dink in a trap, venus fly trap maybe, but I hope these guys get slapped around for my entertainment.

He's Boring now    

Kimmel...what sophmoric low class humor to be involved in. That whole crew who was behind this, always having to inflict pain on another for a cheap laugh. I hope Knoxville and his whole crew OD or find out in about 5 years they are all arthritic from their earlier abuses of their bodies. Than they can be the punked jackasses. Not a one of them has ever served their Country and we're all supposed to think they're tough guys. Ask Bams uncle Vito about his situation. Child molester.

Pay up you welchers.

Best of luck to the rube, but Kimmel and company's lawyers are more well equipped. This guy should just spend as little as he can to pay some thug to go after his transgressors with a big, sharp garden shears and... fill a few mousetraps... rather, gopher traps. Teach 'em!
