A recent press review wrote: Karrell Fox, if you count him one at a time is at least 5 or 6 of the world's best magical entertainers. He has created many different roles for himself, each for a specific type of audience and each has been successful. In all his roles his magic and humor are freshly original, but his personality transcends the tricks. He is never brash or smart alecky. He comes across as a pleasantly good humored, easy-going, and warm, friendly individual whose aim is not only to make people laugh but to make them happy.

Notes
Karrell Fox (January 30, 1928 – March 12, 1998)

Grew up to become one of the most influential magicians of the 20th century. When he was a child, his parents operated a small restaurant in East Rainelle, West Virginia. A customer sneaked out without paying his bill, but left behind a few small tricks. With these, Karrell began his magic career.[1]

Karrell appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show at the age of 18, and was co-owner of a Detroit magic shop. Karrell Fox was one of the first Trade Show magicians and billed himself as "King of Korn". He also created the "Magic World of Ford" for the Ford Motor Company and toured with it for many years. He later had his own TV show, performing as Milky the Clown.

He was a "regular performer". at "Abbott's Get-Together"., surpassed only by Gordon Miller, an Abbott's employee/performer who introduces each Get-Together's evening performances, in total Get-Together appearances. He traditionally MC'ed and performed on the closing (Saturday evening) show of the Get-Together and the "act" was a lampoon of the other acts of that year's Get-Together and other happenings of note from the Get-Together. Abb Dickson was Karrell's "Partner in Fun" for more than 25 years, performing with him at magic conventions all over the world. For several years Karrell wrote the "FOX-TALES" Column in "TOPS" magazine.[2]
