Originally from Paris, Tennessee, Sammy Goldstein's early career was as a musical comedy actor in summer stock theatre performing in such shows as "Finian's Rainbow" (as "Og, the Leprechaun") and "Fiddler On The Roof" (as "Motel, the Tailor"). At age 20, he moved to Los Angeles where he took a job as a singer/pianist in a piano lounge to support his acting career. Instead, he found a second career, one he has nurtured and with which he has found great success.
In New York and Los Angeles, Sammy has performed at several private affairs for Barbara Walters with guests-of-honor including Henry Kissinger, Mrs. Anwar Sadat, Donald Trump, Carol Channing, Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme, and the former King Constantine of Greece.
As an actor, Sammy has co-starred on episodes of "Murder, She Wrote," "The Trials of Rosie O'Neill" and a "Columbo" movie-of-the-week, as well as appearances on "Magnum, P.I.," "Superior Court," "Divorce Court," the soap operas "Generations" and "Loving," and in such films as "Xanadu" and "Ghostbusters."
