Tony Clifton is dead!
20 April 2005 | by caspian1978See all my reviews

The idea of Andy Kaufman is more entertaining that Andy Kaufman. The same goes for the creation of the character: Tony Clifton. This cable / stage presentation was considered both Kaufman's final contribution to his work as well as the final nail in his coffin.A few good laughs doesn't make up for minutes and minutes of dead silence. Yes, Elvis is good, his foreign character is even better, but everything else is nothing more than leftovers. Bob Zmuda may be a brilliant comedian / producer, but he has marketed himself as Andy Kaufman's shadow. 25 years since Kaufman's death, Zmuda still is known for his friendship with Kaufman and nothing else. It was a nice surprise to see Robin Williams portray Kaufman's grandmother. This is one of very few 'great' moments in this show.
