Male, Deceased Person

– 1921


Who was O. K. Sato?

O. K. Sato was an American vaudeville performer who flourished in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. His act was notable for its juggling of the comedic style and may be described as helping define the so-called "tramp" juggling style epitomized by W. C. Fields. In fact, Sato and Fields are known from Fields' surviving correspondence to have maintained a bantering relationship in which the two traded gossip and ideas for their acts.

Sato was born in Trenton, New Jersey. He began his career at Coney Island and met his wife, Marguerite Wartenburg, while touring in Europe. They were married in 1896.

After Sato retired from the stage he was a real estate developer in Irvington, N.J., where he died suddenly of a heart attack on Wednesday, March 23, 1921.
