The Comedian Who Changed My Life is Andy Kaufman

The Comedian Who Changed My Life is a new series where comics talk about, you guessed it, the comedian who changed their life.

Todd Barry and Andy Kaufman


Hey this is Todd Barry, and, one of the comedians who changed my life  was Andy Kaufman.  I got to see him way before he became known for wrestling women and audiences were terrible after that point.  But I got to see him and it showed me what you could get away with on stage.  Even though I’m nothing like Andy Kaufman.
