    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:

    [video=youtube;P9tTCGqrr0o]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9tTCGqrr0o[/video]

    ANYWAY..

    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!

    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. :hilarious:

    It really is the best podcast nobody knows about. I've been listening to it at work and laughing so loud I'm sure my coworkers think I'm mental. Oh well.

    This preview clip for this week's show cracked me up.

    Windy City Heat is hilarious, I've got a copy on DVD I watch every couple of years.

    The Big 3 is doing their LIVE streaming podcast via YouTube again tonight. Show starts at 7pm PST (in about 15 min).

    Tune in here: http://www.youtube.com/vpn

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

    Just discovered the podcast after loving Windy City Heat since it came out. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. I wish I would have known about it earlier!

    He's got too much invested in it to ever admit he's being duped. Without it he'd have nothing.

    I fucking love The Big Three podcast!
    Windy City Heat was brilliant.
    I figure they started fucking with him around '92.
    The movie was around 2001.
    There's a Big 3 website that has podcasts from 2010 onwards.
    I've gotten through about the first 6 months of that so far.
    More recently the YouTube podcast has been on.

    I started with the 2010 stuff before getting the YouTube ones because I thought it might be beneficial to hear them chronologically.
    Were those podcasts also recorded on video?
    They mention a public access TV show previous to the 2010 stuff. Is that up somewhere?
    I'm dying to start watching the recent YouTube VPN episodes, but just trying to catch up first.

    The video podcast is only through VPN and they have done about 6 or 7. They are all great and highly recommended. I have only seen a couple of clips on YouTube of the public access show. Hopefully someone will start uploading more, because the clips they have shown on the VPN show have all been great.

    I truly believe perry is that stupid. Jimmy kinda confirmed it in his rolling stone interview.

    They haven't done a VPN show in some time now. I love the visual element.

    Them and Norm too? What's happening to Carolla's pirate ship? Maybe they're all sick of hearing about Mangria :)
