Tom Mullica's love affair with show business began in 1953 in Waupun, Wisconsin when, as a five-year-old child, he decided to be a clown. Two years later he discovered magic and not long after combined the two. In addition to magic and clowning, he is a highly skilled ventriloquist and pantomimist.
At the age of 21, Tom moved to the magic capital of the world, Colon, Michigan, where he built illusions and demonstrated magic for the famous Abbott's Magic Company. He then moved to Atlanta, Georgia where he opened his own nightclub called The Tom-foolery Magic Bar Theatre, where he remained from 1976-1987.
While in Atlanta, Tom struck up a lasting sincere friendship with Red Skelton, which resulted in some great advice. Red suggested "Take 10-15 minutes of your best material and perform it pantomime to music and you'll be able to work any place in the world - you'll have no language barrier." Tom took Red's advice and after six months of rehearsal moved to Paris, France where he was one of the featured acts at the world famous Crazy Horse Saloon.
Tom returned to America in 1991 and continued his comedy magic career until 1996 when he began writing 'Tom Mullica as RED SKELTON - The Legend Continues', which is now featured in theaters throughout America and Canada. 
His television appearances include Late Night with David Letterman, World's Greatest Magic, Penn & Teller, Viva Variety and hundreds of television appearances. He has worked in theaters, clubs, and cruise ships around the world and has performed as Red Skelton – The Legend Continues for over fifteen years.
After an extended absence from the magic world, Tom has finally decided that it’s time to come back. The International Brotherhood of Magicians is delighted to announce that one of his first appearances debuting his new act will be in Jacksonville, Florida!! You won’t want to miss this!
