Clever Like A Fox by Karrell Fox

Karrell Fox was an extremely successful magician. He was probably the first to appear at trade shows as magician and even had a touring show for Ford Motor company. His success can partly be attributed to the many characters he developed perfectly suited for different venues and occasions: 'Milky' the Clown, Prof. 'Mix-up', 'Wow' the Wizard, W. C. Fields, and 'Just Plain' Karrell.

Here you will find lots of great ideas spanning the gamut from card and mental magic to stage and platform effects. Throughout you will find many photos of Karrell Fox - a pleasant picture show of the life of a man who was not only successful artistically but also financially.

From the introduction by Sid Lorraine

At seventeen years of age, he was manager of Abbott's Magic Shop in Detroit. Since that time, he has been soaring successfully in many ways: As a magician, comedian, and Master of Ceremonies .... As W.C. Fields in TV ads, as "Milky the Clown," as "Wow-the-Wizard," to name a few of his character roles. As a writer and producer, he was responsible for six travelling trade units designed for the auto industry as "The Magic World of Ford." He also provides inspirational talks for sales organizations.
