To the family, many, many friends, colleagues and fans of this wonderful comedian Mr. Mort Sahl fine comfort with you during this difficult time in your lives. He was a stand-up comedian who pioneered a conversational style of comedy that influenced generations of comics. We hope many of the encouraging words and thoughts on this site comforts you during this difficult time also. His way of during stand-up comic by carrying a newspaper under one arm, Mr. Sahl offered a rapid-fire, conversational patter that sounded utterly natural and unscripted. Many at that time in the 1950s enjoyed his shows to whom he brought much laughter and joy too. May you find comfort in your wealth of fond memories together with your dear loving loved one. May Almighty God in the Heavens comfort your hearts with peace and loving kindness as you cope with this precious loss in your lives.

Mr Sahl style of comedy was very funny. He lived a long life and I hope it was a good one. However long that life was I’m sure it’s very difficult for the family at this time. Prayers to the family.

Godspeed Mort, and thank you for sharing a part of your life with us, and the innumerable (and controversial at times) laughs. A trailblazer, and unforgettable. Rest Mort, until you hear at dawn,
the low, clear reveille of God.

Thank you for your service to this nation. U.S. Army Air Force, WWII.
