Karrell Fox (January 30, 1928 - March 12, 1998), born in East Rainelle, West Virginia, was one of the first magicians to work Trade Shows and billed himself as "King of Korn".
BiographyWhen Fox was a child, his parents operated a small restaurant. A customer sneaked out without paying his bill, but left behind a few small tricks. With these, Karrell began his magic career. By the age of 18, Karrel appeared on the "Ed Sullivan Show" and was co-owner of a Detroit magic shop.
He created the "Magic Wold 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.
Fox was a regular performer at Abbott's Get-Togethers. 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 he wrote the column "FOX-TALES" in "TOPS" magazine.
Fox served as the 48th International President of the I.B.M. from 1986 to 1987.
