From Encyclopedia Dramatica
Andrew Geoffrey Kaufman✡ was the most famous IRL troll who ever lived, a man who dedicated his life to making people confused, irritated, shocked, and/or infuriated, and was the first and only man to make a living out of doing it for the lulz. He was also pretty much the greatest person who ever lived ever (and not even his being a Jew can stop this) and is widely considered to be the father of trolling, and quite possibly even anonymous itself. Hey, it's a possibility.
Why Andy Kaufman Was Funny
Andy Kaufman was funny because he didn't give a shit about the audience. He did everything for his own amusement, usually at the expense of everyone else. Examples of this include intentionally fucking up the entire scene in Taxi and Fridays, informing the audience that women are more suited to cooking and cleaning and then wrestling those who disagreed, getting an old woman to pretend to have a heart attack and die onstage, getting his character, Tony Clifton, to select members of the audience and insult them, throw water on them, embarrass them, etc.
