    "Andy Kaufman's official site"

    Get to debunking!

    Why won't people just stay dead?

    A couple of days ago on the radio I heard a story from someone who knew Andy extremely well personally, that said that he and andi had talked about him faking his death. He was very convincing and if Andy really was back I wouldn't be suprised :wink:

    I'd be surprised if this really was Andy. I wouldn't be surprised if he was alive, but just making a full on, honest to god return like this seems too simple, not showy enough for him.

    Good point. Still, if it were anyone but Kaufman...

    I know that I for one have always wondered just a tiny bit.

    Thanks Chief! :smile:

    I don't know if I'm disappointed or not. It would be great to see him alive - he is one of my all time favorite wackos - but that would be an incredibly cruel stunt to pull on the people that love you. I don't think I would have liked him much for doing that.

    Kaufman Faked it

    He told a lot more than one person he wanted to fake his death. He told at minimum eleven people. Find out much more at the Kaufman Fakedit Matrix: http://www.geocities.com/kaufmanfakedit
    or at Andy Kaufman Lives at:
