About this submission

Andy Kaufman supposedly died 36 years ago. Many are sure he’s really gone. Others, not so much. This documentary chronicles my quest to discover where the comedian has been hiding all these years. I investigate the claims made by his former writing partner, Bob Zmuda. For years, Zmuda has said that in 1984 Andy faked his own death and has been in hiding ever since. Many fans hold on to the belief that Andy will someday return to the spotlight. I go down the rabbit hole, using clues dropped by Zmuda, hoping to bring Andy back for his standing ovation.
