He started you laughing mwith his legendary appearances on Saturday Night Live. He kept you howling as wide-eyed naif Latka Gravas on Taxi. But you haven't seen the absolute best of brilliant, off-beat comic Andy Kaufman until you've seen The Andy Kaufman Special, his wonderfully weird and fall-down funny comedy concert. You want music? You've got Andy groovin' through "It's a small world" and "The cow goes 'moo'." You want guest stars? You've got Cindy WIlliams (Laverne and Shirley) and Howdy Doody - plus Ed Sullivan, Elvis Presley, and Latka Gravas (all of whom bear a striking resemblance to Andy). You want funny? You've got The Andy Kaufman Special!
