Production began in mid 1983 and later halted in early 1984 after Andy Kaufman was diagnosed with lung cancer. Production and research resumed over one year after his death for another two years as well as a year of editing before being released in 1989, five years after Kaufman's death. See more »
Andy Kaufman was the funniest man of all time. This film/biopic is just a testament to the fact that Andy Kaufman was the originator and mentor of all the great comedians since the late 70's (Robin Williams, Richard Belser, Jim Carey, and yes probably even Carrot Top). He will go down in history for mastering that rare brand of humor that was infantile yet adult, lowbrow yet refined, utterly disgusting yet beautiful. Everytime anyone reads The Great Gatsby, sees an Elvis impersonator, or professional wrestling he should be thought of.
