Biography

Tom enlisted in the Army at age 18, serving 3 years in Korea and Germany. After getting out of the Army he moved to Colon, Michigan, where he built illusions and demonstrated magic for Abbott's Magic Company. Tom then moved to Atlanta, Georgia where he attended bartending school and opened his own nightclub called The Tom-foolery Magic Bar Theatre which lasted from 1976 to 1987.

He has appeared on television many times including Late Night with David Letterman and World's Greatest Magic.

Red Skelton visited the Tom-foolery in 1980 and they became fast friends. He asked Red for his advice after wanted to move on and Red suggested that Tom take 10-15 minutes of his best material and perform it pantomime to music. He said he would be able to work any place in the world because there would be no language barrier. Tom took Red's advice and after six months of rehearsal moved to Paris, France where he worked at the world famous Crazy Horse Saloon.

Tom returned to the United States in 1991 and continued his comedy magic career. In 1996, he began writing RED SKELTON (A Performance Tribute) which he now performs in theaters throughout America and Canada.

Tom is also the CEO of Van Blaine Productions.[1][2]
