Before They Were Stars: Andy Kaufman as a Contestant on “The Dating Game”

Of course, he appeared on the show under the fake name, Baji Kimran, and used it as an opportunity to play his “Foreign Man” character (an early incarnation of Latka Gravas from Taxi) in front of a baffled bachelorette who had no idea who he was. Sadly, she did not choose to go out on date with him at the end of the show.
