Soupy Sales / Milton Supman (January 8, 1926 October 22, 2009) was a Jewish American comedian, actor, and radio-TV personality and host. He was best known for his local and network children's television show, Lunch with Soupy Sales; a series of comedy sketches frequently ending with Sales receiving a pie in the face, which became his trademark. During the 1960s, an urban legend arose that Sales had sneaked off-color jokes into the show, but this has been disproven repeatedly.

From 1968 to 1975, he was a regular panelist on the syndicated revival of What's My Line? and appeared on several other TV game shows. During the 1980s Sales hosted his own show on WNBC-AM in New York City.

Personal life

Sales was married twice: first to Barbara Fox (from 1950 until their divorce in 1979). They had two sons, both of whom are rock musicians: bassist Tony Sales and drummer Hunt Sales. Along with David Bowie and Reeves Gabrels, the Sales brothers comprised the art rock band Tin Machine and worked with Iggy Pop on Lust For Life

Sales' second wife (from 1980 until his death) was dancer Trudy Carson.

Sales died on October 22, 2009, at the age of 83, at Calvary Hospice in the Bronx, New York. He had had many health problems and entered the hospice a week prior to his death.
