Andy Kaufman Interviewed by Orson Welles, 1982



Here’s Andy wearing his neck brace from the Lawler feud, and Welles was in full-on Old Grumpy Obese Genius mode at this point. I wish TV was still this crazy.


I love that about half-way through he forgets to stop playing up the neck brace.

The infamous Lawler slap on Letterman is here. Still one of my favourite bits of television.


Was hoping somebody would post the Letterman bit, I bet if I dig I can find that whole “I’m From Hollywood” collection of his promos against the memphis fans. Just tremendous ass-showing unrepentant scorched-earth heeling.
