Kaufman, Andy (American actor and comdedian, 1949-1984)

Note: Kaufman started out in New York clubs by posing as an inept comedian with a vaguely middle-European accent. He performed deadpan Dadaist stunts, from singing along to children’s records to testing the audience’s patience by reading F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby out loud or doing his laundry onstage. He received mainstream acclaim as a sitcom actor, but is best known for his live work that verged on performance art.
