I barely remember Andy Kaufman, but watching Man on the Moon made me wish I could. But thanks to the magic of online video, those of us who missed his infamous outburst on Late Night with David Letterman can now see it.
This incident occurred after a supposed long-time feud between Kaufman and professional wrestler Jerry “The King” Lawler. It was revealed years after Andy’s death that the whole feud, this incident included, was staged and the two were actually friends. But you’d never know it by watching this.
Things like this were Andy Kaufman’s forte. Sometimes people got it, others they didn’t, but that didn’t stop him.
