Herschel Savage (born November 25, 1952) is an American pornographic actor and porn movie director.

He was born Herschel Cohen to Russian Jewish parents in New York City.[2][3] He studied acting under Broadway actress Uta Hagen and renowned acting teacher Stella Adler.[3] Savage initially sought a mainstream stage and screen career, however became disillusioned by the constant auditioning and competition for roles.[3][4] Savage was introduced to the adult film producer R. Bolla in the late 1970s.[3] He then became one of the biggest stars of the "Golden Age of Porn" in the 1970s and 80's. He appeared in the 1978 classic Debbie Does Dallas, for which he was paid about $150 a day.[5] Some of the other big films he appeared in include Expose Me Now, Bodies in Heat and Rambone Does Hollywood.[3] He left porn in 1988 and worked in sales and video distribution, also playing a few roles in local theater productions.[3] He then returned to the industry in 1997.[3] Savage is one of the disproportionately large number of very successful Jewish pornstars; a group which includes Paul Thomas, Ron Jeremy, Jerry Butler, Marc Wallice, Richard Bolla, Richard Pacheco, William Margold and several more.[4] Indeed Paul Thomas once quipped that "If one of the thinnest books in the world is Professional Jewish Athletes, then one of the thickest is Famous Jewish Porn Stars".[4]

Savage has also launched a fledgling career as a stand up comedian, and appears frequently on the reality TV series Family Business. In 2006 he starred in Neil Simon's play The Prisoner of 2nd Avenue under the stage name Max Cohen, at the Morgan-Wixson Theater in Santa Monica.[3]

Herschel is a member of the XRCO,[6] Legends of Erotica[7] and AVN[8] Halls of Fame, and has appeared in more than 1000 films. [3]
