Originally broadcast by 4fm Ireland and produced by Digital Audio Productions, Dublin The Mysterious McComb is the magical story of Billy McComb, a boy from Belfast who became one of the world’s most influential performers and magicians. Born into an upper-class family in Belfast in the 1920’s, Billy turned his back on a career in medicine to follow his dream of becoming a world-class magician. His path to success took him from war-torn Belfast to Dublin (where he spent a night in prison) and on to The London Palladium. During his time in London he married and performed with his new bride, a former Miss Ireland. From there, Billy set his sights on global domination, traversing the globe performing on cruise ships. He eventually put down roots in Hollywood, setting the stage alight across Los Angeles and Las Vegas. A charismatic, timeless and indeed iconic figure, Billy McComb changed the face of magic and inspired a generation of aspiring magicians. The producers wish to thank Martin Breese for the original audio of Billy you hear in this production.
