donates money to as many
charities as he can.
His credits, television,
stage, radio, records, are
legion, but mostly, he gets the
greatest satisfaction appear-
ing in night clubs. "Working
in a night club is the most ex-
citing because you never
know, you're doing a new
show every time," he said.
"You do a play and you know
where the laughs are, the
tears. You do a movie or a
television show and you stop
and do retakes until you get
it right. But, when you get
dressed and you walk out on
that (night club) stage, you
don't know what's going to
happen and that becomes ex-
citing."
Appearing at the Berkley
Comedy Castle, Sales regales
his audience with song
parodies, one liners and some
off-color stuff. "It's nice to be
home," he says as he greets
his audience, and then he's off
and running with the gags.
"You can eat dirt cheap
here," he says of the comedy
club. "If you want food, that'll
cost you extra.
"I want to do great. There
are a couple of agents out
there — one from Allstate,
one from Prudential!"
Some of his jokes are barbs
at entertainment and other
personalities.- "Julio Iglesias
was arrested," he says about
the soft-voiced singer. "For
loitering in front of the or-
chestra." And on Iglesias'
teaming up with country
singer Willie Nelson: "lb all
the girls I loved before," he
mimicks the duo. "He did
that with Willie Nelson. Now
there's a day at the beach."
On Jessica Hahn: "She's so
ugly she should have her
head capped. I don't mind a
lady's being ugly, she abuses
the privilege." On coming
from a small town: "In my
hometown, if it wasn't for
bowling, there'd be no culture
at all."
His greatest achievement,
he surmised, is that he is still
in show business, since star-
ting 40 years ago. And he at-
tributes his success to doing
what he likes to do, make peo-
ple laugh.
"I consider myself a success
because I'm doing what I like
to do and I really don't envy
people who aren't doing what
they like to do. Because if you
do what you like to do,
regardless of the money or
whatever it is, then you real-
ly are a success in life."
He once had a big disap-
pointment, he confides, but it
actually turned out to be a
plus in his career. "I was
depressed one time about, I
didn't get a Broadway show I
was up for and I thought I was

Sales has appeared on TV, on radio, on stage, recorded six record
albums and has a new book.

going to get (it). And I didn't
get it and it turned out good
because it closed a few days
after it opened and I went on
to get my radio show with
NBC and to do a syndicated
show that went into 140
markets. If I had gotten the
Broadway show, I wouldn't
have gotten to do that (radio
show) and in the long run I
had two good years out of the
radio show, where the Broad-
way show only ran a week."

Tbday, there are no disap-
pointments for Sales. Based
in New York, he's 'always off
somewhere doing his night
club shtick or commercials.
He has been named national
spokesman for Big Boy
restaurants and has already
appeared locally for Speas
Farms, a Michigan company
that makes apple juice. He's
working on some writing pro-
jects and keeps his options

open for other performing
opportunities.
So far, the World War II
Navy veteran and father of
two sons has already racked
up numerous credits in his
performance resume: six
record albums; a Broadway
show, Come Live With Me;
summer stock, including
Hellzapoppin (which he
wrote), Guys and Dolls and
Pajama Game among others:
four movies and night club
and college appearances from
one coast to the other. He also
has a new book, Soupy Sales,
Did you Hear the One About?
For all of his expertise in
the field, does he have words
of wisdom like he used to im-
part on his famous Soupy Sez
blackboard from the old
WXYZ Lunch With Soupy
show?
"Oh sure," he says smiling
confidently. "People who eat
sweets take up two seats!"
