Andy Kaufman tries out a facsimile of Latka as a contestant
30 December 2015 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Though I haven't seen it since, I recall watching this particular entry due to the fascinating appearance of Andy Kaufman, playing a reasonable facsimile of his Latka Gravas character from TAXI. Not having seen his character on TAXI, I was not prepared to see him as a contestant on THE DATING GAME, supposedly an immigrant claiming ignorance for the rules regarding this show, and coming off as quite amusing or I wouldn't have kept watching. I don't remember if he 'got the girl,' but I wouldn't be surprised if she did pick him out of the three! Score another notch on the belt for producer Chuck Barris, who certainly had more than a few before THE GONG SHOW, with THE NEWLYWED GAME tops among them. Who could forget such famous responses to a simple question like "what was the first thing you said to your husband on your wedding night?" Answer: "gosh, that's a hard one!"
