“Kaufmania” starring Fred Willard and Andy Kaufman
January 16 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm$15 – $20
Join us in our “friendly world” at Dynasty Typewriter as we celebrate the comic genius Andy Kaufman (1949-1984) and the next wave of comic fandom for a benefit screening of the new comedy film “Kaufmania.” In the film, veteran comedian Fred Willard (“Best in Show” “This is Spinal Tap”) presides over a series of independent mockumentary vignettes centering around the influence of the life and career of the late television star and experimental comedian Andy Kaufman. “Kaufmania” includes contributions from some of the biggest names from Andy’s past, including his rumored alter-ego, singer Tony Clifton, Jerry “The King” Lawler, former manager George Shapiro, and Reggie Watts. Segments include the rise of an obsessed Andy Kaufman fan, North Hollywood Hannah (Heather Monroe), a fan of Andy’s who finds glory in the professional wrestling world and Wally Wingert (“Invader Zim”), who built a shrine to Andy Kaufman in his own living room!
In person: director + guest of honor Kaufman Manager & Seinfeld Executive Producer George Shapiro, Andy’s longtime collaborator and Man on The Moon star Little Wendy Polland + surprise guests.
Hosted by comedian Lila Hart.
