Andy Kaufman Revealed! Bob Zmuda with Matthew Scott Hanson Pages 291 Quote page 152 My quote is, “This man is outta his mind”. Andy Kaufman was a little crazy I have to say. Andy did some drugs when he was young. At as park in Chicago he got stoned at a big party in the park and the Chicago police said that the park was closing. The cops said get or get arrest.
Andy said the park wouldnt close so no one moved. His girlfriend got hit by a nightstick in the head and Andy ran down an ally. He wrestled 300 woman none of them won. He wrestled Jerry “The King” Lawler of Memphis. When he wrestled Jerry he broke his neck. (The people thought.) They really planned it to happen.
Andy was two people, Andy Kaufman and Tony Clifton, a Las Vegas singer. The mask that was made to be Tony was made for Andy and his partner Bob Zmuda. When Andy got his contract for Taxi he wanted to be only one half the shows and Tony Clifton to be on four of them. He wanted Tony to kicked off the set of Taxi so he asked two prostitutes if they would help him if he paid them and they did and he got thrown off the Paramount lot. Andy was dying of some strange lung cancer. At first his manger, his partner and his girlfriend thought he was joking.
His family didnt really believe him cause he faked breaking his neck and he was a real big faker. Since he was dying he wanted to do a big show. So he got Carnegie Hall. They got the Rockettes for the show. He got Santa Claus in a sled to some down from the ceiling and gives him a present.
He wore a shirt that said I Love Grandma. He took all the 1,800 people at Carnegie Hall out for milk and cookies. Is this guy out of his mind or what? Andy is dead and Tony Clifton is still alive. Some people think Andy faked his death. He talked about it a few years before. Tony could be Bob but who knows.
Is he dead or alive?.
