    Talked about faking his death? Sure. Obsessed with the idea, as some have claimed? Sure. Being able to pull it off so well that he got the cooperation of all of the authorities, including getting a dead body so that he could have an official death certificate on file with the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services that you can look up and see for yourself on the Smoking Gun website? No.

    Lot’s of people still trying to make money off of his genius? Definitely.

    Although I liked Andy on Taxi, when I saw his performances elsewhere, I was not too crazy about his interpretation of what he found humorous. However, this claim that he is alive is truly in the spirit of the kind of stuff he did.

    Kaufman’s death is easily verified if anyone really wanted to do it. Exhume the body and have a look.

    He wasn’t interesting to the majority of people when he was alive and he hasn’t become any more interesting to anyone eles since he’s been dead.

    And Jim Morrison didn’t really die in that bathtub in Paris of a heart attack/heroin overdose, he’s been living in a really remote part of Africa since 1971. [rolls eyes]

    Kaufman was a comedian’s comedian. The only guy in the room who could make other comedians laugh. He wasn’t really in it for public consumption.

    I don’t see how anyone can make too much money on claiming he’s still alive unless it helps with DVD sales or something. However, these rumors were debunked years ago.

  7. Steve Houldsworth says

    DNA tests are cheap and readily available. A comparison test on this alleged daughter and Kaufman’s brother would be easy evidence to obtain.

  8. Sean Maloney says

    Yeah, he, Elvis and Morrison are all hanging out at the local Denny’s in Nashville. You can see them nightly. Have at it.

    So, where’s he been, all this time? Shacked up in a menage a trois love nest with Tupac & Biggie Smalls?
