Pic of the day: The morning after Carnegie Hall, Andy Kaufman wrestles on the Staten Island Ferry

Thanks to Bob Mantin for this photo from the comedy archives. It was 31 years ago this month that Andy Kaufman infamously performed at Carnegie Hall, then took the entire audience out for milk and cookies afterward, and after that, invited anyone interested to join him the following morning on the Staten Island ferry. Fans who took Kaufman up on his offer watched him playfully wrestle a woman, and also eat an ice cream cone. Memories.
