Sharp-Tongued Lounge Singer Helps ‘Black Bastards’

NASHVILLE (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Infamously blunt lounge singer Tony Clifton is giving back to the community, even if it’s by force.

Clifton, the controversial alter ego of dead comedian Andy Kaufman, is headlining a tour for the Comic Relief charity called Tony Clifton and the Katrina-Kiss-My-Ass Orchestra.

The show, which kicks off in Pittsburgh this Saturday (Oct. 11), will benefit musicians, dancers, and singers affected by Hurricane Katrina.

Despite lending a helping hand, Clifton says he “doesn’t give a sht” about the “black bastards” he’s benefitting, and is only doing the charity show to fulfill a community service sentence.

He explains, “Someone slipped a mickey finn [sedative] in my Gentlemen’s Jack and I got fked up and went in the wrong hotel room. Next thing I know, some old lady is screaming. I got arrested and now I’m doing this to burn off 60 hours of community service.”

Though he’s helping out the homeless and displaced, Clifton warns, “If any homeless bastard comes up to me, I’m gonna run his ass over.”
