As it turns out, Crispin was probably in character as Rubin from the (at the time, unreleased) movie Rubin and Ed. Here it is:

I remember that when it aired. When they came back from commercial, he was gone and they never mentioned him again.

Yep. I remember sitting there stunned.

Somewhere on Youtube is a longer version of this that has the aftermath.

Omigod! You found this!!!! My sister and I watched the original broadcast, and kept asking "Is this for real?". I don't think this show was ever broadcast again. Brilliant find, Bubs! I might steal it for my blog this weekend.

Please do. Somewhere I read, recently, that Crispin was in character as "Rubin" from a movie he'd just finished called Rubin and Ed. The movie was filmed in the 80's but didn't get released until the early 90's. This was even more bizarre than some of Andy Kaufman's appearances once he started wrestling women.
