Anyone who has seen my show, Ted Greenberg’s The Complete Performer, or read this blog knows that Andy Kaufman is one of my comic heroes. Hey, I’ve even vied for the Andy Kaufman Award a couple of times. Kaufman, in my mind, was a comedy genius and brilliant performance artist who has people still in awe of his work nearly 30 years after his untimely, and sometime debatable passing.
 
Andy and His Grandmother
 
The latest Andy Kaufman news is that Andy and His Grandmother, his first and only comedy album, has just been released. Culled from over 80 hours of recordings he completed from 1977-1979, the album features conversations with colleagues and lovers as well as his insane bits. Time Out New York, in its rave reviews, says “for acolytes, every moment, especially the final conversation about those who “won’t believe [Andy’s] death,” will feel like manna (from wherever comics go when they die).” The Boston Globe chimed in with “Long live Andy Kaufman.”
 
What a treasure to have a new Andy Kaufman release 29 years after he succumbed to lung cancer. Thanks to Vernon Chatman for compiling this album.
