Tony Clifton Heckles, Is Thrown Out of 'The Green Room with Paul Provenza' (VIDEO)

Tony Clifton, 'The Green Room with Paul Provenza'Tony Clifton strikes again! The fictitious character was made famous by Andy Kaufman, but true to the uniqueness of Kaufman's trade, he's been played by other people and continues making appearances to this day. His most recent was on 'The Green Room with Paul Provenza' (Thu., 11PM ET on Showtime).

His schtick has always been to be obnoxious and incredibly annoying, and he was in perfect form, completely disrupting the show to the point that security came in and eventually took him down. Was it all staged? Was he really acting that way because he was as drunk as he seemed?

As is always the case with Clifton, we'll probably never know. But we loved his parting words. "if I made one person happy, it's all been worth it," he said before being hauled out of the room.

As Paul Provenza said, that's commitment. At the same time, we were glad to see him go as he really was ruining the rhythm of conversation that makes these shows so compelling. Clifton wasn't a part of the panel, rather he was seated in the audience.

The crowd is usually filled with comedians, and they occasionally interject into the conversation, or are invited into it briefly, but the focus needs to stay on the invited guests. It's their diversity, interactions and stories that make the show work.
