Biography

No one threw, and received, a pie in the face quite like Soupy Sales. The American comedian and actor was said to be the world record holder of having been hit by more than 25,000 pies on his long-running children's show "Lunch With Soupy Sales" (ABC, 1959-1962). But the zany comic artist also did more than his share of returning the favor, sending pies flying at some of America's most famous celebrities of the time - Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Tony Curtis - who all begged to be on the receiving end of his legendary antics. Sales was the consummate funny man; appearing in dinner theater and comedy clubs, performing live on Broadway, and keeping audiences in stitches with regular panelist gigs on the improvisational television show "What's My Line?" (CBS, 1968-1975) and several other comedy/variety shows.
