[EBOOK/PDF] Is This Guy For Real? author Box Brown

Box Brown returns to the subject that ave him his breakthrough in Andre the Giant Life and Legend wrestling in Is This Guy For Real And it s for real a decent biographical comic on the reat comic Andy Kaufman mostly focused on Andy s wrestling What little I know about Kaufman outside of his comedy is thanks to the Milos Forman film Man on the Moon though Brown s book doesn t really add much to that so I uess it was a pretty thorough biopic I did find out though that Andy s wrestling costume was designed purely to hide his boners as his fetish was wrestling women and he didn t want to show his arousal in public That and a better understanding of his beautiful Buddhist beliefs are the two main things I ll take away from this book The book asks the uestion why would such a Gandhi Churchill: The Epic Rivalry that Destroyed an Empire and Forged Our Age gentle sweetuy create characters who were so intentionally obnoxious and calculated to be hated by the audience like the misogynistic wrestler and Tony Clifton the drunk lounge act Brown s answer seems to point towards Kaufman s love of wrestling and its then secretive nature of kayfabe pretending wrestling was real instead of scripted Except the premise is really only set up In The Book Jacket the book jacket blurb and if you didn t bother reading that and I usually don t I the book jacket s blurb and if you didn t bother reading that and I usually don t I it this time as I wondered what the point of the book was beyond the obvious I can t imagine the story s purpose will be at all understandable And that s really my only major critiue of this book that Box Brown didn t clearly establish what he was trying to achieve within the book itself nor did he firmly answer it Taken at face value it s a truncated but fine bio of Kaufman from his regular Les Innocents guest appearances on Saturday Night Live and the sitcom Taxi to his Buddhist values though mainly the focus is on his love of wrestling Much of the book is about his kayfabe rivalry with Jerry The King Lawler and their public spats the two were actually close friends in real life And it s kinda interesting Kaufman s jokes particularly his ridiculous taunting of women still make me laugh but doesn t make for a terriblyripping narrative Wrestling fans or Kaufman fans wanting to find out on his wrestling antics will et the most out of this one I m neither but I still thought Is This Guy For Real was a fairly entertaining and informative read about a true comedy original I somehow had no idea that this book existed until I found it on display in my local library I also didn t know until then that I needed to read an illustrated biography of Andy Kaufman Which is funny because I only et Kaufman maybe half the time although I think very few people ot him all of the time I watched Taxi with my parents and we all liked Latka as long. Comedian and performer Andy Kaufman’s resume was impressive a popular role on the beloved sitcom Taxi a high profile stand up career and a surprisingly successful stint in professional wrestling Although he was by all accounts a sensitive and thoughtful person. ,
