Day 4: Andy Kaufman

Song and dance man
Exploring, pushing perceptions of illusion and reality.
Elvis, Mighty Mouse, Meester Carter
By night, busboy by day.

Subverting, queering ‘Take my wife, please’

Dismissed as an eccentric
Serving milk and cookies
Pinning over 300 women
Intergendered Wrestling Champion

“I always thought wrestling was phony,
and I was wrong.”

Tony Clifton, Latka, my invisible twin brother
Refusing to let us in on the joke.
“No, he’s really dead.”
Until what you believe becomes reality.
