The Kentucky-born entertainer always wanted to be a magician. His grandfathers were both amateur magicians. King’s first paying gig was a birthday party when he was just 10 years old.
During his summer breaks from college, the funnyman performed magic three times a day. After graduating with an anthropology degree, he hit the road and performed at comedy clubs worldwide. He appeared on several NBC TV specials and broke a Guinness World Record – all without harming one single goldfish.
