Andy Kaufman Plays Carnegie Hall

Kaufman the human thermometer up in the shrine of all art, introduced by Tony Clifton.

The sum of his performances, Whistler’s mother, Kaufman’s grandmother.

An exact state of affairs casually rendered, or vice versa.

The one about the penguin reunion with no “punch” (cp. Andy’s Fun House, dir. Tom Trbovich).

Midnite supper of milk and cookies.

Mark Deming (All Movie Guide), “remarkably funny.”
