The club owner who fires Andy after singing "The Cow Goes Moo".

During the scene where Tony Clifton is performing and Andy Kaufman walks out, making people believe that Kaufman and Clifton are two separate people, Clifton is played by Jim Carrey up to the point when Kaufman emerges from behind the curtain. Clifton is then portrayed by Paul Giamatti until Kaufman goes backstage, where Clifton is then played by Carrey again for the remainder of the scene.
At the beginning of the movie, Andy appears, criticizing the movie as "so stupid" and "terrible," and complains about the movie's events being changed for dramatic purposes. He then says that he has "cut out all the baloney," making the movie "much shorter. In fact, this is the end of the movie." To get the audience to leave, he cues up a record, and the end credits begin to roll, through the cast list, stunt performers, unit production manager, first assistant director, and second assistant director.
