I found this classic early 1960's era live television comedy sketch from the Soupy Sales Show
on You Tube recently.
A popular daytime television show in America during the 1960's, was the Soupy Sales Show.
This wacked out, add lib infested live comedy show, featured sometimes many surprises.
One of the shows biggest fans, was the famous American pop standard singer Frank Sinatra.
Comedian Soupy Sales, was famous for incorporating that old silent movie / vaudeville gag
known as "The Pie Fight", which was a big standard gag with The Three Stooges as well.
Frank Sinatra wanted to be "Pied", but Soupy Sales was afraid to do so, as Frank Sinatra
was a big famous entertainer who had a notorious reputation to make or break ones own
showbiz career. Frank Sinatra ended up meeting with Soupy Sales face to face, and gave
him the permission to "Pie him in the face on television", as per his request.
Here is a sketch involving Soupy Sales playing a waiter in an upscale restaurant, and watch
as Frank Sinatra / "Old Blue Eyes"...gets a very comedic "Pie in the face" on the
Soupy Sales Show.
