Controversial lounge singer Tony Clifton returns to the stage again to prove that he isn’t a completely washed-up entertainer once and for all.  The tour makes it’s stop at Seattle‘s Triple Door on Friday, October 8th and should be an exciting night of “music”, “comedy”, and, most importantly, unabashed verbal assaults on you, the audience members.  Here’s your chance to see Clifton live and, with the helps of our friends at Square Peg Concerts, we will be sending one lucky winner to the show with a free pair of tickets.  It’s about time, too; his alter-ego, Andy Kaufman only died 26 years ago.

For entry rules, feel free to jump ahead and scroll down to the bottom. Those less familiar with Clifton, or even those who are, should take a moment to watch this super old televised interview with the man below.  With any luck, it will answer as many questions for you as it creates:

And… here are more details about the event:

This is certainly rated R.

Tony Clifton, alter ego of comic genius, Andy Kaufman, will be returning to The Stage for a monumental, special performance on Friday, October 8th – 25 years after Kaufman‘s writer/producer, Bob Zmuda, united comedians for the first time to raise funds for charity. Since then, his Comic Relief organization, with the help of hosts Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg, and Robin Williams, has raised millions towards helping the homeless and people in need. They‘ve also been very involved with disaster relief, including the 2006 HBO/TBS special for those affected by Hurricane Katrina.

Clifton, backed by the 12-piece Comic Relief-sponsored Katrina Kiss-My-Ass Orchestra, and burlesque troupe the Cliftonettes, will also be playing the following dates: Wednesday through Friday night – May 19th through 21st. It promises to be a kick-ass, not-to-be-missed show in the intimate nightclub setting of The Comedy Store. Seating is limited, and it will be an unforgettable experience for those present. So where the hell has Clifton been? 2009 was a big year for the musical titan, traveling the country with his troupe, performing to sold out audiences and stellar reviews.

Unfortunately, being a muscle relaxer-fueled fever dream, it's hard to recall all of the details. "I remember that my mom was there, but it wasn't actually her in the dream, it was actually 70s heart throb, Jan Michael Vincent. And everything took place here, in this room... but it wasn't actually here... it was different. The colors were washed out and, for some reason, there was a raccoon kicking it with us and it was wearing a holographic monocle."
