Do It. Cinefamily Andy Kaufman event.

I became a fan of the late, great Andy Kaufman after being shown his "I Trusted You" video on YouTube. It's unreal. I find his style of comedy--which many acts mimic today--refreshingly immature in the best possible way. You end up laughing out loud even if you don't want to.

The 1992 R.E.M. song "Man on the Moon" makes reference to Kaufman's work, and the 1999 film of the same name, starring Jim Carrey, is based on his life.

Tonight, to honor the 25th anniversary of the song and dance man's death in 1984, Cinefamily is holding an event celebrating the just-released book Dear Andy Kaufman, I Hate Your Guts! and show some never-before-seen "solid Kaufman gold". Bob Zmuda, Kaufman's best friend, writer and sidekick will be there for a Q & A.

The 8:00 p.m. show is sold out, a 10:30 p.m. show has been added. Tickets are $15.

The Cinefamily at The Silent Movie Theatre is located at 611 N Fairfax Ave. in Los Angeles
