We talk Andy Kaufman’s Heartbeeps with Chris Gore, Jenna Busch, Conan/Tonight show writer Josh Comers, comedian Brent Weinbach and R2-D2 (Tommy Bechtold) to talk robot love. Plus Tony Clifton tells racist jokes! Heartbeeps
In August Chris Gore asked if I wanted to do a live show where his show “Podcrash” crashes my live show of “Proudly Resents.” Of course I said yes, but I had not idea what I was getting myself into. Listen to the show and behind the scenes stuff on today’s episode.
The real Tony Clifton called in the show. He was friends with Andy and something to do with making “Heartbleeps.” In fact, Andy had to do “Heartbleeps” first before they made the Tony Clifton movie. “Heartbleeps” bombed so bad, the TC film was never made.
It’s amazing to hear Tony tell the most racist jokes ever. The audience is packed with people dress in cosplay. It was cool to see people dressed as sexy elves get offended. I had to hang up on him.
Since he won the “Andy Kaufman Award” I asked Brent Weinbach to do stand up on the show. In honor of Kaufman, I had Brent only do his visual jokes. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
This was a fun and funny show. Great times.
