The girl was a paid actress for the stunt by Kaufman's brother.
Her real name is Alexandra Tatarsky she is 24 years old, her dad is a doctor. She met Michael at a Andy Kaufman museum and they hatched the plan as a comedy act. People in the crowd all knew it was a prank and appreciated the dark humor as an homage to Andy. But that is all it was, someone videoed it and uploaded and what we see is out of context since its just a small part of the prank performance.

That's pretty clear info. Of course, the rumors of his being alive will continue.
Just like with Elvis. (who I also think is very much dead).
Sadly, I think Andy did indeed die when it was reported. But if anyone on that list of celebs who faked their deaths could have done it, my money would be on him to have been the one.
Here's his appearance from the 1st episode of a then-brand new TV show, Saturday Night Live. I saw this live when it was 1st broadcast, & it still cracks me up.
That man could work up a hilarious bit from anything!
