SOUPY SALES DIES

Original post made by Martin, Amador Estates, on Oct 23, 2009

It was a simple gag, but one that made Soupy Sales a household name: a pie in the face, or 20,000 pies, to be exact. That slapstick comedic trick, along with a warehouse of goofy faces and wacky characters helped elevate Sales (born Milton Supman) to one of the country's most beloved comedians in the late 1950s. Sales died on Thursday at the age of 83 at a hospital in the Bronx, after several years of declining health.

I don't know about you guys, but this saddens me. I use to watch Soupy Sales when I was a kid. It was a time of innocence that is all but gone.
