Top Definition
The showbiz art of upstaging someone. It began when it was Sammy Davis, Jr.'s turn to move down on Johnny Carson's couch to make room for the next guest. WHen that guest said something funny, Sammy would react by laughing loudly, slapping his knee and falling to the floor. The audience would then begin laughing at Sammy and not the guest.
Next to the Candy Man, no one was better at "pulling a Sammy" than Milton Berle.
