ABOUT THIS EVENT:
Andy Kaufman (1949–1984) claimed never to have told a joke. A performer working in the field of popular entertainment (on Taxi, Saturday Night Live, and more), he confounded audience expectations and challenged the traditional role of the comic. "I Trusted You: Andy Kaufman on the Edge of Performance" features famous and rarely seen clips of Kaufman’s comedy, his interventions on live television, the cult classic film My Breakfast with Blassie (1983), and will include members of Kaufman's immediate family speaking about his work from a personal perspective. This happening will also present live performances conceived by Andy Kaufman that few have ever seen. They will arise within public gallery spaces as well as in the Redstone Theater; true to Kaufman's spirit, the lines between intended and unintended, spontaneous and planned, will not always be clear.
Organized by guest curator Brian Hubble
