Actress does nice ‘Andy Kaufman is alive’ hoax 

For a brief moment, it seemed as though comedian Andy Kaufman could be alive, and that he did fake his own death — a rumor that has been swirling since he died of cancer in 1984.

A woman who claimed to be his 24-year-old daughter – who strikingly resembles Kaufman – appeared at the Andy Kaufman Awards in New York, with Kaufman’s brother Michael in tow. She said her father was alive, living the private life he always wanted.

But Defamer reports the woman is New York actress Alexandra Tatarsky, who pulled off a good hoax — a fitting tribute to a man who was a master at the game. Thank you vetty much.
