Show Notes
— Watch, ‘Windy City Heat’ for FREE – Windy City Heat is a made for TV reality film produced by Comedy Central directed by Bobcat Goldthwait and starring “The Big 3” Perry Caramello, Don Barris, and Walter Molinski(Tony Barbieri).
The movie is presented as a practical joke being played on an aspiring actor named Perry Caravello, allegedly a gullible friend of Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla. Caravello believes he has been given a chance to make a movie called Windy City Heat, a crime drama about a “sports private eye” named “Stone Fury.” However, there is no such film; it is all an elaborate prank played on him by Kimmel and Carolla. Every actor, extra, or any other person who appears on the show was paid for by Jimmy Kimmel to add to the joke. The actual context of Windy City Heat is a behind-the-scenes look at the filmmaking process, which is really nothing more than a series of situations set up as pranks on Caravello, playing on his gullibility and naivete of the film industry.
