LLoyd Kaufman Getting Beat Up By Some Asshole
Lloyd Kaufman makes lowbrow, sleazy movies, sure, but they're just goofy fun and even occasionally feature some lefty liberal social commentary. I mean, how do you figure on movies with titles like Sgt Kabukiman NYPD and The Toxic Avenger being anything other than good wholesome perverted fun?
This Morton Downey Jr. fella was an 80's trash TV talk show host who was kind of like a less classy version of Jerry Springer. He was loud and obnoxious and chain smoked so much that it killed him. Even as a kid, I remember watching this guy's show and thinking, "This guy's an asshole."
He really was an asshole.
In this clip, Morton Downey Jr. screams and points his finger at a bearded and skinny Lloyd Kaufman and his partner. Then a bunch of old guys in suits grab the two and drag them away, without either of the poor schlubs getting a word in edgewise.
Oh yeah, then there's the lame-o, scripted joke at the end where Downey's underlings pass the buck and blame each blames another member of the production staff for booking this segment.
What a jerk.
