The Big 3 Podcast / Windy City Heat
If you've never seen Windy City Heat, you're missing out.
If you're unfamiliar, Windy City Heat is an incredibly funny "reality TV film" directed by Bobcat Goldthwait, produced by Jimmy Kimmel and written by Kimmel and co-stars Don Barris and Tony Barbieri (Walter "Mole" Molinski). It documents the filming of a movie that wannabe actor/comedian Perry F. Caravello has recently been cast in as the lead.
Conveniently, Don Barris and Mole have also been cast in the film as supporting players and Perry is subjected to constant pranks and humiliations for the duration of the shoot.
The films opening credits inform you that "Don and Mole have been fucking with Perry for the last 11 years." and Windy City Heat is the end result of possibly the most meticulously planned practical joke ever.
If you haven't seen it, you should. It's the only comedy in recent memory that's made me laugh so hard I feared for my life.
There isn't a proper trailer for the film online, at least not one that does it justice, so this is a good clip to give you an idea of the goings-on:
Here, Perry has been tasked with protecting a table of junk food arranged to impress a new financial backer for the film (a premise so absurd it's genius) when the perpetually high Mole shows up and makes trouble for Perry:
The stars of the film have a podcast fittingly called The Big 3 Podcast (http://thebig3podcast.com/) which follows the groups current adventures, mostly exposing Perry's numerous scams, lawsuits and past homosexual experiences (Perry is incredibly homophobic and routinely loses his temper over being reminded of these activities). If you have the time, it's worth downloading the last 10 or so shows and listening to them back to back, as it's somewhat of a serial.
So, if you're interested, The Big 3 will be streaming a live podcast tonight at 7pm Pacific Time via Jackhole Productions alum Daniel Kellison's Video Podcast Network on YouTube. It's the last one they're doing for a month, so check it out!
Goddamn I love that movie. I just heard about the podcast a month ago. I'm going to listen. Btw it's still going on....perry still hasn't grasped fully what's going on.
This podcast makes me laugh harder than any other podcast. It's fucking impressive that they still fuck with perry, and he really hasn't figured it out after allmost 20 years.

Should be funny. My guess is they'll call Perry gay and he'll start screaming and punching people.
