Born and raised in Chicago, Bill Malone visited his first magic shop when he was 17, and the magic bug bit hard. Soon after, he began performing at Little Bit of Magic, a comedy/magic club on Chicago's south side, where he learned the fine art of entertaining audiences. Here is where he honed his style and character, because while people loved the magic, Bill quickly realized they loved to laugh even more. After 5 years, Bill was ready to move onward and upward.
His next big move was to the New York Lounge, a famous magic club located on Chicago's north side. Bill worked eight hours a night, seven days a week for over five years entertaining people from around the world. While Little Bit of Magic afforded him the opportunity to learn how to perform and entertain, his experience at New York Lounge taught him the business side of show business.
In 1987, Bill relocated to sunny Fort Lauderdale where he owned and operated his own magic/comedy club called Houdini's Pub. While he was busy with this venture, he also found himself performing frequently outside Houdini's, quickly establishing himself as a premier entertainer in south Florida and across the country
Bill was in great demand and rapidly built an impressive client list, working corporate events everywhere. His career skyrocketed, though, when an NBC producer called to ask him to appear on their network television special, The World's Greatest Magic. This show led to many Prime time televisions appearances for Bill. Seeing his notoriety and talent, the Boca Resort Hotel and Club formed a partnership with Bill and together they created Malone's Magic Bar, the premier entertainment outlet at the resort. Malone's Magic Bar operated for over a decade, entertaining the elite.
Bill and his wife, Barbara, live in Boca Raton, Florida with their three sons. He's one of the most sought-after entertainers in the world.
