***WORLD EXCLUSIVE – MUST CREDIT HAMMER OF TRUTH***
Clifton would out do him, he told the crowd, as he announced “Act 3″…wherein the legendary porn star Ron Jeremy came out with a sign, also held by Dennis Huff, who is apparently the owner of the Midnight Bunny Ranch in Nevada. Act 3 will be tomorrow night (actually tonight, I guess) for anybody who can make it to the Bunny Ranch for free….whatever you like…between 8pm and Midnight.
A few Bunny Ranch denizens then took off their top and invited everyone to come on up tomorrow night for all they could eat.
Apparently Zmuda was able to make it. .
The website, Andy Kaufman Returns, is being outted here at Hammer of Truth as a HOAX!
PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE/DISJOINTED SENTENCES (just like Drudge)
Recently, two items were released that spelled doom for the hoax–which is being perpetrated by Kaufman’s old friend Bob Zmuda–photos of an event at the Bunny Ranch near Las Vegas.using the free wire service PR Web, and
ADDITIONAL COLOR PHOTO CAPTION: Pictured is the character “Tony Clifton”, who was played by both Andy Kaufman and Bob Zmuda. Zmuda continues to play the character at his comedy club. (See this is what happens when I try my hand at that “real reporting”, I prefer the Wonkette approach: make shit up).
Hammer of Truth uncovered the real identity after a whopping three minutes of searching the Internet. In the Bunny Ranch photo, Bob Zmuda is the same outfit from the House of Blues performance earlier that night. His appearance is similar to an earlier photo takenon the then-upcoming book Andy Kaufman Revealed! Best Friend Tells All. Andy Kaufman and Bob Zmuda both played the character “Tony Clifton” to many audieces that could not discern who was who. Zmuda has pulled one over on the public again in this outlandish hoax on the anniversary of Kaufman’s death.
Readers are noting that “Andy never had a dimpled chin” and “even if he got fat, that’s Zmuda’s nose”!
The hoax is part of a, in Los Angeles California.
FROM THE SITE:
“Andy himself stated that were he to fake his death, he would return 20 years later to the day. MAY 16TH 2004 IS THAT DAY. Over one hundred personal ads will be taken out, across the country and abroad, reminding him of his words. Will he show?”
This historic celebration will feature a special premiere showing, along with star appearances by RODNEY DANGERFIELD, CAROLINE RHEA, BOB ODENKIRK, ANDY DICK, PAUL RUDD, PHIL HENDRIE, JERRY “THE KING” LAWLER, RICH VOSS, ZACK GALIFIANAKIS, and a rare performance by International singing sensation TONY CLIFTON &THE CLIFTONES AND HIS STEAMY CLIFTONETTES.
$250 VIP tickets include select seating & celebrity reception (hopefully with Andy); general seating is $99.95; standing room only $50
Kinda steep for a few B-list actors where Andy would “hopefully” show up. Our sources say he was unable to make the party because that whole dying thing will kinda do that to you.
FLASHBACK:. He got into a fake fight with Jim Carrey and the two smashed reporter’s tapes and recorders in an arranged publicity stunt.
