Legendary cult comedy star, Andy Kaufman officially died from lung cancer in 1984. However, his brother, Michael Kaufman, is now claiming that his brother faked his own death and is alive and well.
He added that the comedian has a wife and a daughter. Appearing at an award show named in Andy’s honour, Michael claimed that he received a letter from his brother in 1999, five years after he ‘died’.
Michael also introduced a woman and said she’s Andy’s 24-year-old daughter.
"He just wanted to be a stay-at-home dad, that's why he wanted to leave the showbiz.”
"He's pretty much a great dad, and raised us. My mom has her own business... He helps her with that kind of thing, paperwork and stuff, so he can work from home and he doesn't have to be hiding out [or] concealing himself."
"He just makes us food and takes care of the house."
Killy Dwyer, who is understood to be present in the event, wrote on her Facebook page and said: "The entire room was freaked out.”
"I get that it is - could - might all be a hoax... [but] it was as real as anything I've ever seen. There is video. It was chilling, upsetting and absolutely intriguing."
Kaufman's life story was told in the celebrated film Man on the Moon starring Jim Carrey as the comedian.
