Years After Their Deaths, Entertainers to Tour as Holograms

Comedians Redd Foxx and Andy Kaufman, who died in 1991 and 1984, respectively, are about to take the stage again. Hologram USA announced that it plans to use likenesses of the two comedians and parts of their recorded routines to produce hologram shows that will tour the U.S. in 2016. Alki David, founder and chief exec of Hologram USA, says the company is also “working with other estates of famous funny guys and funny girls.” According to The New York Times, future plans include “holographic versions of Billie Holiday to perform at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, and of Whitney Houston for a worldwide concert tour next year.” Broadcasts will also be made available on David’s FilmOn website.
