** When the ''SaturdayNightLive'' call-in segment aired to vote Kaufman to stay or leave, the film showed it presented by Lorne Michaels. In reality, Lorne had left ''SNL'' years earlier, and the segment was hosted by Gary Kroeger.

** PlayedForLaughs in-universe as he {{Troll}}s an audience for thinking they were watching him playing Tony Clifton. The audience isn't amused, though they ''technically'' got what they paid for: Tony Clifton's act and to see Andy Kaufman.

* KayFabe: Andy Kaufman's entire style of humor. However, in a more direct variation of the trope, he was fascinated with wrestling and decided he wanted to be the {{Heel}} wrestling women. He and Jerry Lawler collaborated, and the two fooled everyone, and we mean ''everyone'', with some hardcore Kay Fabe. Even if you knew Andy was faking it, he was uncomfortably realistic in his sexist persona.

** This film ignores Kaufman's short-lived but infamous big screen career. It pretends ''Film/Heartbeeps'', among other films, never happened. Apparently he spent his entire 80's career being a wrestler and getting cancer.

** Probable answer: Kaufman's ''brother'', who in real life occasionally played Clifton a few times both while Kaufman was still alive and after his death.
