The life and career of a legendary comedian, Andy Kaufman.
Hello. I am Andy and I would like to thank you for coming to my movie. I wish it was *better*, you know, but... it is so stupid! It's terrible! I do not even like it. All of the most important things in my life are changed around and mixed up for ...
When Andy comes to George's office to discuss the offer for the 'Taxi' TV series, there's a picture of Bob Newhart and Mary Frann from 'Newhart' on George's office wall. 'Taxi' debuted in 1978; but Newhart and Frann did not debut on 'Newhart' until 1982.
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.
