This video is a blast-from-the-past that is sure to leave you in a fit of laughter. Andy Kaufman was one of the most amazing performers that we ever had the chance to witness and he is a comedy legend to this day. When he was invited on The Johnny Carson Show in 1977, he did an extraordinary routine impersonating none other than The King Of Rock & Roll, Elvis Presley. And you won’t believe it when you hear it, because he sounds so completely different than he does with his everyday voice.
Elvis Presley himself was rumored to have several tapes of Andy’s performances with him. He even considered Kaufman’s impersonation as one of his absolute favorites of all time. Kaufman sang Elvis’ hits “Love Me” and “Blue Suede Shoes” and he did a fabulous job of imitating him. This was Andy’s first appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.
When Kaufman tells the audience that he is going to impersonate Elvis Presley, he then turns around and does a quick change of clothes right in front of the audience before giving the performance of his life in front of Johnny Carson’s audience.
