Who is Andy Kaufman ?

Andrew G. Kaufman popular as Andy Kaufman was an American entertainer, actor, writer, performance artist and professional wrestler.

While often referred to as a comedian, Kaufman did not consider himself as such.

He was born on January 17, 1949, New York City, New York, United States and died on May 16, 1984, West Hollywood, California, United States.

He died of lung cancer in 1984, at the age of 35.

Because pranks and elaborate ruses were major elements of his career, persistent rumors have circulated insisting that Kaufman faked his own death as a grand hoax.

His body of work maintains a cult following and he continues to be respected for his original material, unique performance style, and unflinching commitment to character.

According to Jim Carrey as stated in A Comedy Salute to Andy Kaufman (1995), Kaufman created and originally played the “Tony Clifton” character.
The secret kept for 15 years (according to Carrey) was that he did so only briefly and the character was soon passed off to Bob Zmuda (Kaufman’s writer).
Most of the TV appearances of Tony Clifton are actually Zmuda, not Kaufman.
