This was one of the better entertainment memoirs that I've read in the past few years. It doesn't hurt that it was written by a true American original like Soupy Sales. I suppose it's hard for kids today to understand Soupy's appeal, as it been nearly two generations since he was active on TV, but he was inventively funny...he did with improvisational humor what Frank Zappa and the Ramones did with music.

Funny stuff for myself and my age-mates (are there any of us left?). A nice recap of the Soupy we knew and loved. Some behind-the-scenes stuff. Also, the disabusing of long held rumors. For most of you, Soupy was the father of musicians Hunt and Tony Sales. For me, he was the guy you laughed along with, and a fond memory.

Soupy Sales (born Milton Supman) was an American comedian, actor, and radio-TV personality and host.

From 1968 to 1975, he was a regular panelist on the syndicated revival of What's My Line?
