The Greatest TV & Movie Alter Ego #5 listed top 10 the greatest TV and Movie Alter Egos.
#5 Andy Kaufman & Tony Clifton 

• The legendary comedian Andy Kaufman created Tony Clifton as his audience-bashing lounge singer alter ego, who was famously kicked off the set of the TV show Taxi (on which Kaufman starred) for showing up drunk to the set. Occasionally played by Kaufman’s brother as well as fellow comedian Bob Zmuda, Clifton was the obnoxious yin to Kaufman’s own awkward yang.
