“Andy Kaufman” – a person who made inflammatory or inappropriate remarks or comments in person for the purpose of upsetting other people and provoking a response.
This week Rich, Abi and Jamie talk about ‘Man On The Moon’ a film about Andy Kaufman that prints the legend with the occasional sprinkling of truth. Comedy, wrestling and the complexities of identity all come under the microscope this week and we reflect on the parallels between Kaufman and Jim Carrey, who portrays him in the movie. Also, does anyone else remember those little triangles they used to put on videos at the rental store to tell you the box was empty? Actually, the better question is: Does anyone else remember video rental stores?
