An amusing slice of performance art.

Regardless, it's very funny -- and sometimes surprisingly warm -- and essential for Kaufman's fans.

Audience Reviews for My Breakfast with Blassie

Andy Kaufman and veteran wrestler Fred Blassie have breakfast at Sambo's, encountering a few belligerent fans in the process who -- in typical Kaufman style -- turn out to be part of the joke. It's hard to know exactly what's real and what isn't (are Kaufman and Blassie really so germ-phobic?) but in any case, the action is more about showcasing Blassie than Kaufman. Blassie gets most of the best lines ("That's another one we're gonna have to feed on welfare"), and his anecdotes and gruff wit are this low-budget video's chief virtues.
