Since a young age, Andy Kaufman was in love with performing. Andy Kaufman would often present long, in-depth shows to his parents and their friends at dinner parties. Their encouragement led Andy Kaufman to study the performing arts at an incredible college.
At the end of the day, the work Andy Kaufman enjoyed the most was when the audience felt connected to his performance. There's nothing worse than an audience that doesn't react to someone and just watches passively.
