Tony Clifton used to be a big deal around here. They say he's related to Atari Joe.

That's awesome man. You either love him, hate him or have no idea who he is. My 15 year daughter has become hooked on him and I am encouraging it! He was one of a kind!

I used Clifton as an avatar for years on FB. None of my friends ever knew who it was! Gonna watch "Man on the Moon" with my daughter when she gets home!

Andy Kaufman was a brilliant man. If you think about it he probably invented Trolling.
