Holographic comedians are coming! Man, I hope not.

redd-foxx-and-andy-kaufmanI’ve mentioned before that there was some recent holographic musicians like Michael Jackson put in holographic form. It wasn’t the first time, as Tupac Shakur was once on stage as a hologram at Coachella 2012, and I am not the first time that was done.

The issue is now Hologram USA wants to give comedians the holographic treatment. The purpose is to make this an “authentic experience”, but isn’t this kind of not authentic at all. In all honesty, it is about the same effect of watching a movie of a man doing a stand-up comedy sketch, but in three dimensions.

So if Eddie Murphy was dead, you could just watch Raw, or you could use a lot of technology to put that movie or another Murphy performance in a 3D hologram. Which is easiest? Seriously, I don’t really like this idea, and they are thinking of using comedians Andy Kaufman and Redd Foxx.

Yeah, I really don’t like this idea. This is not what you want to see if you go to Vegas. If anything, this is something that you would see in the background while you’re gambling.

Now I know why Robin Williams’ family didn’t want his image to be used for stuff like this.
