Sal Viscuso (born October 5, 1948) is an American actor.

His most notable role was as the uncredited, unseen P.A. system announcer in the long-running TV series M*A*S*H. He also made several one-shot appearances as other characters throughout the series, usually as a patient at the 4077th. He is also known for playing one of the most controversial TV characters of the 1970s, Father Timothy Flotsky on the television series Soap, a Roman Catholic priest struggling with his vow of celibacy. He also took minor roles in the movies Spaceballs and The Taking of Pelham One Two Three. He has appeared in Diagnosis: Murder alongside Dick Van Dyke, and starred in an internationally syndicated Pepsi Cola commercial.

Viscuso was one of two regular public address announcers in the series M*A*S*H. The more commonly-heard voice was that of actor Todd Susman. Some sources also list Viscuso as the PA announcer in the film MASH, though this is not accurate. The voice of the PA announcer in the movie was actor David Arkin, who played Sgt. Vollmer as well.

Satirical comedy series, Childrens Hospital, pays homage to Viscuso and his role on M*A*S*H by naming Michael Cera's unseen PA announcer character, Sal Viscuso.

Viscuso attended University of California, Davis where he was active in theater.
