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.

After reading the article, I thought it would be a great idea to experiment and place my sizable manhood into a mousetrap....actually it really wasn't that bad, and quite frankly felt rather exciting. I don't know but I think I've discovered a new side to my sexuality thanks to TMZ, Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Corolla. I'm going to try it again tomorrow and see if I can repeat the magic sensation! Love you guys! Thanks TMZ! It's new horizons for's the limit!

If they misrepresented to get him to do all this crap, then I hope he gets the full amount. Yes, he's stupid, but that just means they exploited that.

You guys can make fun of him all you want, but the reality is, it seems to me, if they promised him 10 million dollars to do that and then he did it, they owe him 10 million dollars. I'm not a lawyer, but I have a feeling that's the answer.

Sad story and Kimmel and those who are being sued should pay big. This man may be mentally slow to begin with and that he was lied to, is horrific. I personal think Kimmel has lost his grove and is not the least bit funny at all lately. The others are idiots who are being sued and have no comedy beyond their looks. I personally like best and think he's very funny, the guy who has a heart and remains very funny, CRAIG FERGUSON. He is the best of all, along with Jay Leno and Letterman. I HOPE THIS GUY WINS, WHEN HE WAS LIED TO AND STRUGGLED TO DO WHAT THEY WANTED BY LIES

Anyone look at the document? Plaintiff vs. "Backhole" Productions (when it's actually Jackhole), "," Adam "Corolla" (Carolla), Johnny Knoxville (I would imagine they would have "Philip John Clapp" his real name according to wiki), "" (Is this a tribute to the goat from the Adam Sandler CD or is this a TMZ jumble?).

Good comedy.

Sorry, but I'd be doing the same thing to. How humiliating. The was just plain wrong. When is the line crossed for funny and just plain wrong.
