Andy Kaufman to Rise from Grave?

Recommended Posts

Is that Sunday the 16th, or the 23rd? The guy died so long ago that I forgot.

The 16th. I am guessing he never showed up at the party.

As if the strange life (and death) of Andy Kaufman couldn't get any weirder. 

 

Andy Kaufman's Brother Says Comedian is Alive, in Love, and Has a Daughter

 

A mysterious woman's claims that she is the daughter of Andy Kaufman have helped to revive long-standing rumors -- fueled in life by Kaufman himself -- that the comedian may have faked his own death.

 

The far-fetched admission, reported first by The Comic's Comic and Defamer, occurred Monday night at the Andy Kaufman Awards, held annually at the Gotham Comedy Club. The woman was introduced by Michael Kaufman, Andy's brother, who first explained how years ago he'd discovered an essay in which Andy detailed plans to fake his death. Official records state the Taxi star died in 1984 at age 35, of lung cancer. (See a copy of his death certificate here.) Were he alive today, Kaufman would be 64 years old.
