soupy Comedian Soupy Sales Dead At Age 83 (VIDEO)

Considered by many to be a comedic genius, Soupy Sales has died of cancer at the age of 83. Read more on Soupy Sales’ life and death below.

Soupy Sales was a beloved pie-in-the-face type of comic that was beloved by the Baby Boomer generation.

Soupy’s friend, Dave Usher, said the comic died of cancer at Calvary Hospice in the Bronx.

The comedian was born Milton Supman in North Carolina.  He was most well-known for his children’s show “Lunch with Soupy Sales.”

The show’s silly sketches had crazy characters like White Fang, Pookie the Lion, Peaches, Philo Kvetch, The Mask,  “Onions” Oregano”.

Most of his shows ended with Soupy Sales getting a pie smashed in his face, and it became his trademark.

Celebrities such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Curtis and Shirley Maclaine appeared to throw the pies at Soupy.

Soupy said he was hit with about 20,000 pies during his career.

Later in the eighties, Soupy Sales had a radio show in New York and appeared in the comedy “Birds Do It.”  Soupy was also a regular on ” What’s My Line?” from 1968 to 1975.

After Sales retired, he lived in New York.  Soupy Sales is survived by his wife Trudy and their two sons, Hunt and Tony.
