Mort Sahl

Comedian/actor

Born - 11 May 1927, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Died - 26 October 2021

With his casual clothes and newspaper under his arm, laidback Sahl was a new kind of comedian who quickly attracted a following in the mid 1950s. Although waspishly laconic comedy was his life and prominent figures his victims, there were inevitably a few film appearances: In Love and War (1958), The Ding-a-Ling Girl (1959), All the Young Men (1960), Johnny Cool (1963), Don't Make Waves (1967), Doctor, You've Got to be Kidding! (1967), Inside the Third Reich (1982), Nothing Lasts Forever (1984) and Max Rose (2013), his last. Born Morton Sahl, he was three times married and divorced.
