    Andy Kaufman asked the producers before he signed his contract to give guest appearances to Tony Clifton, someone he claimed was a friend of his. They agreed to give few guest appearances to Tony Clifton, and Kaufman signed the contract to play Latka. Tony Clifton showed up for the rehearsals late, very drunk and with some scantily-clad women. The producers fired Tony on his third day. Clifton was in fact one of Kaufman's characters. Although to maintain the practical joke Kaufman always denied that Clifton was not a real, separate person, he was usually (thought not always) played by Kaufman in disguise (Clifton was also occasionally played by Kaufman's friend Bob Zmuda).
