[ # ] Andy Kaufman is finally getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
June 20th, 2019 under Taxi


The Hollywood Walk of Fame announced today who will be getting stars next year and Andy Kaufman is finally getting one 35 years after he was taken away from us far too soon.

Ever since the first time I saw Taxi, I have loved the sitcom. In fact, it is still my all-time favorite show. The first time I saw Latka Gravas, I was in love. There was just something so endearing him. I was too young to know all about the Kaufman controversies. When I did learn about them, it just made me love him even more.

Therefore, on the day he gets his star, I will be there to see the ceremony in person. When it comes to the event, they have to get Tony Clifton to talk about his friend. If not him, then Jerry Lawler. The cast of Taxi can talk too, but Clifton would be the ultimate. Although I think Jim Carey might want to be the Man on the Moon, I mean the man behind the podium.

Kaufman and Muddy Waters are the only celebrities who are receiving stars posthumously. To see who else will be honored next year, then
