Man On The Moon

Andy Kaufman, who died in 1984 at the age of 35, was considered one of the most innovative, eccentric and enigmatic performers of his time. Kaufman grew from an Elvis impersonator to a performer who broke all the rules. By refusing to break character or let audiences in on the joke, he frequently pushed his art over the edge, leaving his audience alternately baffled and amused, but it was all part of the act.
