and, like, bomb.
I mean, like, bomb.
To the point where the audiencewas almost heckling him.
And he starts crying.
He starts crying.
And if you don't want me tocontinue then I guess I won't.
Thank you for showingme where I'm at.
And he runs off stageand the MC comes on and goes,
"How could you guysdo this to him?
That's Andy Kaufman.
All right, look at what you--you made the man cry.
Come on, we can't do that.
You gotta bring thatguy back on stage."
And so the audience islike, "Oh, oh, okay, all right."
So they all clap and finallyhe comes back on stage
and he doesthe exact same thing.
There was thisguy who plays bongos
and starts cryingas he's playing the bongos.
I wanna go home.
And we thoughtthat was hilarious
and we also didn'tknow if the guy was crazy
or if it was like--what is that?
I watched him go up on stageand eat ice cream.
He didn't talk.
He just ate ice cream.
And it was one of those thingswhere, at first, you giggle.
And then it's quietand then you start laughing
and then itbecomes hysterical.
And then there'smore tension
because you wanthim to say something.
And then he finished,"Thank you very much."
You hear the storiesof The Improv and Andy Kaufman
and what he would doand you're all,
"Yeah, I wanna havemy Andy Kaufman moment."
And of course I did it.
I shaved during my act.
It's so sad,it wasn't funny.
But, um, I wanted whoeverwas watching the showcase
to see that I couldhave a beard and that--
Like, "We're lookingfor somebody who has a beard.
Nice try though."
But I was--so I did--yeah, I did a beard.
And then I went from a beardto, like, kind of a goatee.
And then completely shaven.
I had a bowlwith water and a razor.
