Man on the Moon: Thank You Very Much

We’ve all been there: 40 million people love watching you perform, and you hate it, so you decide to start wrestling women.

OK, actually one person has been there: Andy Kaufman, the subject of the 1999 biopic “Man on the Moon,” directed by Milos Forman and starring Jim Carrey as Kaufman. This week on Giant Geek vs. Mega n00b, we are diving deep into alternative comedy, engineered outrage and how well Lorne Michaels and David Letterman can act as themselves.

You can stream “Man on the Moon” for $3 from Amazon, iTunes, Vudu or Google Play, or download it for $10 from all of those places. 

And once you’ve seen the movie and listened to the podcast, check out these video clips of some of the real Andy Kaufman incidents that were recreated:
