He's From Hollywood. He Has The Brains.

"There is no disputing the genius of Andy Kaufman, and this DVD encapsulizes it extremely well. As you watch this old PBS special, you will feel like you are watching pro wrestling, Andy's favorite. You know it's all rigged, yet the little voice in the back of your mind peeps to you, "Is it REALLY?"The fight with Elaine boosler is HILARIOUS, and "Has-Been Corner" will make you cringe. The silly, kiddie antics thrown in by Andy will make you giggle, and the Tony Clifton puppet is a perfect sidekick! Oh, and catch the height of Andy's desk as a subliminal sleight to Johnny Carson!This DVD will delight every Andy Kaufman fann, yet it will only prove to those who don't like him the reasons why they don't. IF you love Andy like I do, buy this. If you don't, go listen to your Andrew Dice Clay tapes again."
The Great Neck lunatic at his funniest

"Milos Forman's Man On The Moon was my introduction to Andy Kaufman and, having loved the film, I decided to check out the real thing. My initial fear was that the stories of Kaufman's antics would be funnier than his actual performances. This video proved me wrong - the man is a genius, folks. His Elvis impression still stuns, and the transformation into a puppet of his most terrifying creation, Tony Clifton, is a stroke of pure brilliance. For life long fans and beginners alike, this is a comedy bullseye."

"To most people he is simply just "Latka" from theshow Taxi, but to me he is the greatest entertainer of our time. Andy Kaufman was a very brilliant man! His ideas were something very special, and in many ways, GENIUS! If you have never experienced his bizarre, creative and original ways, I highly recommend this video. Help keep Andy alive!..."
