This film documents gonzo performance artist Andy Kaufman's hilarious introduction into the world of big-time professional wrestling. In the years before his untimely demise, Kaufman concentrated all of his creative energy on defeating Memphis pro-wrestler Jerry "The King" Lawler, effectively ruining his own TV career in the process. This fascinating documentary follows Kaufman as he doggedly pursues Lawler, taunting him on the David Letterman show, threatening lawsuits, and hiring wrestling thugs, all in his bizarre and hysterically funny quest to put Lawler out of commission. Interviews include Marilu Henner, Tony Danza, Bob Zmuda, Lance Russell, and Lawler himself.
