Fan club president Sal Piro

Sal Piro is the president of The Rocky Horror Picture Show Fan Club, a position he's held since 1977. Piro was a part of the original Waverly Theatre audience, from which the unique audience participation elements and much of the film's cult following were born. This following has gone on to become a worldwide phenomenon.[1]

Piro has also appeared as himself in the film Fame as well as a number of documentaries, and had a nonspeaking, unnamed cameo – as a man using a payphone – in Rocky Horror '​s pseudo sequel, Shock Treatment. As an actor, he has performed in both film and television.[2]

He is also the author of two books on the Rocky Horror cult following, Creatures of the Night and Creatures of the Night II.

As described in an article in The New Yorker, he also plays competitive tournament Scrabble.[3]
