Comments

Adam Smith : Lawler needs just as much credit just for being able to sit next to Andy and keep a straight face.

john ayres : It's time to put Andy Kaufman in the WWE Hall of Fame.

EXPLISIT HIPHOP : Love how Kaufman plays bad guy in wrestling yet plays good guy innocent man on Letterman like he was the victim.. haha

ferox965 : "I couldn't warm up to this guy if we were cremated together" Lawler is a genius.

Barry Lab : How is Pete Rose in the WWE HOF and not Kaufman? This was the most talked about wrestling event of its time....before Hulkamania

EXPLISIT HIPHOP : Lawler won some of that crowd .

Jim Ehrlich : This was wrestling gold back then. They both sold it so well and perfect..

Jeffrey Lasky : The greatest wrestling โ€˜workโ€™ of all time! Awesome!

Tony : After 36 years, last week I found out that this was acting, I like it even more, thank you Jerry Lawler for going along with this. Amazing acting .

Samuel Spade : Both of them never drop character

ShinRyojin : Lawler slaps Kaufman, and the band starts playing Not Just Knee Deep instrumental. Something about that is low key badass!

Glenn Martin : I saw this when it happened! It looked so real! Andy was amazing. RIP Buddy!.

Johnny TheGiant1 : "He appears to be twice your weight. And he's better looking." LOL

Jesse James L : Lawler:when Andy was born his father wanted a boy and his mother wanted a girl and they were both satisfied...classic..๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

Private Equity Manager : one of the greatest hoaxes ever perpetrated.

Brian Gilmore : That was a great piece.Andy Kaufman was a very misunderstood comedian.His jokes were awesome.And you never knew what he was gonna do..As for Lawler A great pro wrestler .nuff said

The Watchful And Harmonious Subsriber : Andy Kaufman The Undisputed Troll King ๐Ÿ‘‘

Dark Coven : I actually at one time thought this was real, Jerry and Andy are great actors had me fooled for years.

Roger Clemons : Kaufmann and Jerry were close friends. Lawler had nothing but good things to say about Kaufman when he died. Great hoax they played and most were fooled.

James Lane : Wow it that was FAKE that's damn good acting

Robert bishop : The Kaufman /Lawler feud, angle was classic wrestling. Andy got it all the way. He would have made an incredible heel manager because like Piper he knew how to absolutely anger a crowd. Other than when David Schultz slapped the reporter this,was the 2nd loudest slap heard around the world. Andy told Lawler to slap him to continue the feud.

Cody Sizemore : One of the greatest works in wrestling history, and in entertainment as a whole.

Adam Telford : Andy was a true champion - he won over 400 wrestling matches against women!

Sam707BFBC : Damn Andy coumd take a bump. That pile driver was brutal

Jermaine Martinez-Perez : Andy cuts better promos then roman

Tom Hinshaw : I had this on VHS from when it was originally on, and Iโ€™ve seen it so many times, but never the uncensored version. Excellent to finally hear it the way it really went down!

Alvan5 : Letterman in his Prime was fearless, generous to let guests be nuts but stay put of the way, and irreverent. People forget that because they only remember the Post Heart Attack and Post 9-11 Dave....

Chubby Catfish : 10:33 That's called protecting kayfabe.

Twiki Robot : Classic....watched it when it originally aired.

Rigsby 1 : The best thing is Andy apologising for the words and then saying the exact same thing

ned hall : the GREATEST Rasslin angle ever Kuafman wore that neck brace like a wrestling belt funny ,DaDa ,and kayfabe all ay the same same time ...I remember after Kaufman died Eric Embry used to taunt Lawler with you killed Andy Kaufman your piledriver gave him cancer

Jeff R. : "And he's better looking" Letterman playing along with the gag

Spike EP : " Memphis is a stand-in for wherever you are right now โ€” It really means โ€˜That's How I Got Here.โ€™. โ€œ

Pete Brown : Had to re-watch after I heard a recent interview with David Letterman on Marc Maron's podcast. He says Andy was always really nice and would fully explain everything he was planning on doing for his appearances on the show. Dave was in on it. Even though he knew this was gonna happen, he wasnt fully prepared for it, so his reaction seems genuine

Marc E : This was pure genius

The EdRay Report : That slap was real, but it paled in comparison to what Jerry Lawler did to Jim Carrey. That slap was much harder to Jim than it was to Andy.

NeuralNetProcessor : Damn Kaufman drew the heat! He was a total face in NYC, but the biggest heel Memphis had ever seen lol

Shaun Tanger : Weird lawler and Kaufman both acted like heels.

Peorhum : I like how Andy purposely missed with the coffee

TheHoffy59 : and Kaufman isn't in the WWE Hall of Fame? He was one of the first.

Joseph Clark : When new york was new yawk .Kaufman it his best ๐Ÿ˜Š

Kelli Peplow : Andy was the most attractive unattractive person to live.

You Clown : This may have been a hoax, but that was a real slap.

๋ฟก๋ฟก! ^__^ : I love seeing these two legends in the same room lol

TheMiguel : I always thought it was pronounced "cough-men" Letterman says it like "kaelfman"

Karemaker : It was an act but I guarantee you that slap was real and hurt like hell. Andy probably had to talk a reluctant Lawler into REALLY giving him a full force smack. Remember what happened to Stossel? Lol.

YouthEnergy : This must've been live, right? For Andy to cuss like that on live TV, that takes balls. Such dedication to the craft.

Jamar Dunson : Jerry Lawler is giving me an aj styles vibe when he talks in this. Its great.

Cat With A Dick : The absolute best troll of all time. Longmont Potion Castle is number 2.
