This is for any Andy Kaufman (and I guess Bob Zmuda) fans.
Zmuda was recently on Marc Maron's excellent interview series, WTF. It's a longer show than usual, with the interview segment clocking in at over 90 minutes. Zmuda talks about his entire career, but obviously most of the focus is on his time working with Kaufman.
I became aware of Andy Kaufman back when Man on the Moon came out, and I haven't really ever seen anything beyond that and the Kaufman specials that aired on Comedy Central at the time. Hearing Zmuda talk about him like this was something I hadn't really heard before and it's a lot of fun to listen to.
I don't know if you have Netflix, but all of the 1970s Saturday night lives are on there and Andy appears, perhaps 10-12 times, often doing his record bit as foreign man, and his elvis bits - but his last several revolve around the wrestling and Bob is a part of those. I'd go check those out for a little insight on both Andy and Bob Zamuda.
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.
