Classical Hollywood Stars Who Are Still Alive
Mort Sahl – Age 94
Morton Lyon Sahl found fame as a social satirist. He’s credited for pioneering comedy pieces poking fun at current events and political events with only a newspaper used as a prop. Time magazine wrote a cover story about him in 1960, making him the first comedian to make such an achievement.
While his material included several hilarious jabs against political figures, most were his fans, including the late John F. Kennedy. Impressively, he’s a non-smoker, doesn’t drink, or uses swear words. It might have a hand in helping him get to 94. James Curtis released a biography about Salh titled Last Man Standing in 2017.
