Andy Kaufman's quotes

  • There's no way to describe what I do. It's just me.
  • There's no drama like wrestling.
  • Pure entertainment is not an egotistical lady singing boring songs onstage for two hours and people in tuxes clapping whether they like it or not. It's the real performers on the street who can hold people's attention and keep them from walking away.
  • They say, "Oh wow, Andy Kaufman, he's a really funny guy." But I'm not trying to be funny. I just want to play with their heads.
  • While all the other kids were out playing ball and stuff, I used to stay in my room and imagine that there was a camera in the wall. And I used to really believe that I was putting on a television show and that it was going out to somewhere in the world.
  • What's real? What's not? That's what I do in my act, test how other people deal with reality.
  • I never told a joke in my life.
  • I just want real reactions. I want people to laugh from the gut, be sad from the gut, or get angry from the gut.
