Kiki Klarifies: Andy Kaufman

Andy Warhol, with Caitlin Clarke, Debbie Harry and Andy Kaufman who appeared together in the Broadway show ‘Teaneck Tansi: The Venus Flytrap’ The show ran for only one night, April 20, 1983
April 01, 1983

I knew the picture above was important for research and I was trying to find out who Andy Kaufman was and now I believe it’s Ron Howard. Why Ron? Who else could it be?

Andy Kaufman

Andy Kaufman shows up with Deborah Harry in this photo. Deborah Harry is Cheryl Howard, Ron and Cheryl were inseparable at this time by default this should be Ron if Deborah is Cheryl. Let’s look at Andy without a shirt. We see the same scars on Andy as on Ron, look at the forearms. This looks to be a motorcycle accident, scars on the knees and legs as well.

Now interestingly enough my wife used to hang with Donna Pescow, every morning in High School when Donna was a senior and my wife a junior. Donna would skip school and my wife would counsel her that she needed to go to school in order to get a job. Donna would whine that she didn’t have to go to school, she was going to be an actress. My wife would counter that she was never going to be an actress and she needed to study and finished High School. My wife, committed to getting her through High School did all her papers for her. In return she directed a film my wife did with her friends about the French Resistance in WWII. Donna went on to do Saturday Night Fever with John Travolta. 

I argued with Marcia that Donna must be well connected as they would never give such a big role to someone ordinary just showing up for an audition. She also said she was going to be an actress. We argued this for years until I figured out out that Travolta was Ron Howard. By default this would make Donna Pescow, Cheryl Howard. Now Cheryl did not need any help with her school work. She’s a genius in her own right and wrote Harry Potter and Diary of a Wimpy Kid as well as dozens of other books; she just hated school.

I also asked Marcia, after all those months with Donna/Cheryl Ron must have been hanging around. She could not remember seeing him at all, however, in a little known bowling alley in Sheepshead Bay Brooklyn an up and coming comic got up and did what is now a famous sketch called, “Mighty Mouse”. Andy Kaufman would get up on stage and play the theme song to Mighty Mouse but only sing the parts where Mighty Mouse would sing, “Here I come to save the day!”
