    yeah, I know, if you are unfamiliar with this guy it takes a few to get him.

    Wow! That was something.
    See, Kaufman had this gimmick he did as a wrestler.
    Pretty crazy stuff. Here's a picture.

    Anybody used to like or hate on Kaufman?
    Any comments, memorys? Favorites? Dislikes?

    Wouldn't take a leak on him if he was on fire?

    Andy would have wanted it that way.

    The Elvis Presley bit doesn't have the same impact here. The thing that made it so great was that AK was an unknown at the time, and he came out doing 3-4 horrible impersonations first, using his Latka Graves character. He made the audience feel embarrased for him, and them knocked 'em out with Elvis. Good stuff.

    I happened to be watching the live broadcast of "Fridays" when Andy and Micheal Richards had their infamous fight. The incident made national press for several days afterward. It was painful to watch at the time, and I remember being p.o'd at Andy for "forgetting his glasses". As the credits rolled, the camera went through the studio to the dressing rooms to show Andy sitting on a stool and crying. I still have a hard time believing that it was all a prank.
    "Man In The Moon" revealed this incident and the Jerry Lawler beef to be elaborately scripted hoaxes, but one can't help but wonder of there was actually some truth to them, and that this movie was a PR cleanup job.
    But that would be the genius in it all...one would never know the truth.
