Press kit for Andy Kaufman, stamped in red ink on front of manila envelope “Andy’s Press Kit by his mother Mrs. Stanley Kaufman”. The ephemera gathered here displays Kaufman at the height of his career, while he was acting on Taxi and Saturday Night Live. While some materials include interviews, the ephemera largely concerns his character Tony Clifton and his infamous Carnegie Hall show, which he ended by taking the entire audience out for milk and cookies. Whether or not this was actually assembled by Kaufman's mother is up for interpretation.
