Subject: RE: Andy Kaufman
"Man On The Moon" was a fascinating movie. Andy Kaufman had a lot of gall, and did some very memorable things in his time...but the role I will personally NEVER forget was Tony Clifton! Almost unbelievable.

To see that degree of bad taste and obnoxiousness combined with a style of music that is already obnoxious by its very nature is really hilarious, once you get over the initial shock. I can understand why some people went back again and again to see Tony Clifton do his thing at the Vegas nightclubs.

"Wow!", is all I can say. What nerve.

And a lot more fun than watching Spaw groom his weimaraners too...
