Born in Louisville, Kentucky, Mac first discovered his passion for magic from his grandfathers – who were both amateur magicians! You can say that being a magician is in Mac’s blood. Mac studied magic books in order to emulate his grandfathers, and was soon performing magic on his own. Mac’s first paid performance was at a birthday party when he was 10. He received $5 and a piece of cake for the performance. This first taste of performance created an appetite for more, and led him to college where majored in magic, and married one of his audience participants! He soon began performing on popular 1980’s shows such as An Evening at the IMPROV. This gave way to an International career, as he took his act to Spain, Japan, Australia, Sweden and more!
The beginning of Mac King’s Las Vegas career was his feature on Penn and Teller’s Sin City Spectacular. Some of the tricks he is famous for include his Amazing Goldfish Trick, where he makes a live goldfish appear over an audience member´s head! He performed several times on the new syndicated Donnie and Marie Show, and his appearance made it to their year-end highlight show of The Best of 1999. Mac continued to receive steady work in Las Vegas and beyond, even creating the Mac King Magic in a Minute comic strip. In 2001, Mac began his one-man-show, The Mac King Comedy Magic Show at Harrah’s Hotel and Casino, in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. Since then, he has amazed audiences while making them laugh all the while!
