Comedians Andy Kaufman and Redd Foxx will return as 'holograms'
Holographic (actually, “Pepper’s Ghost”) variations of lifeless musicians have confirmed profitable, so why not comedians from days passed by? Hologram USA does not assume that is a nasty concept, no less than. The tech agency has revealed that it is producing visible resurrections of legendary comedians Andy Kaufman and Redd Foxx that may go on tour in 2016. Hologram USA says the estates of each celebs are collaborating to make this an “genuine expertise,” though it isn’t clear precisely what meaning.
The experiment with comedians might show difficult. Whether or not or not you consider it is respectful to revive any entertainer as a hologram, comedy has challenges that are not current in music. In any case, many good comedians react to their audiences — a hologram won’t. Will digital Kaufman know when to interrupt the uncomfortable silence? Will Foxx know when to push your buttons? These recreations should be welcome blasts from the previous, however one thing tells us that a prerecorded comedy routine will not be as convincing as a live performance.
