Andy Kaufman on “The Dating Game”

Video

I’m not quite sure when this aired, but professional comedians were often hired as ringers for the infamous daytime game show of the 1960s / 1970s “The Dating Game.” Here Kaufman does a version of Latka as a contestant who seems clearly puzzled by what’s expected of him. Very funny stuff. Especially the bachelorette who seems like a parody of a 1970s porn star, even though that may not be her intent.
