Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but just saw this on Facebook, posted by Richard Kaufman...

"Just got off the phone with Steve Mullica, Tom's husband. Here's the story. Tom went into the hospital for a minor hernia operation which apparently was botched. Blood clots formed and he had multiple strokes, organ failure, and he's now in the hospital in an induced coma. It doesn't look like he will be coming home. Please send good thoughts his way."

Very sorry to hear this. I was fortunate enough to be able to spend some time with him on a couple of occasions, just a super person to be around. I don't even know what to say.

Man, that is sad news.
Played pool with Tom a couple times when he owned a pool hall in Vegas, also saw him lecture a few times.
I regret never having had an opportunity to him at the Tomfoolery.
Truly a great magician and an even better person.
Hope he fools everyone again and makes a complete recovery.

My Good thoughts for Tom. He's one of the Best Comedy Magicians I've ever seen.
One of my first Video teaching Cassettes was Tom Mullica's.

I really Hope, Tom will be recovering fast.

Wow, that is terrible news. He was the funniest magician I have ever witnessed live. When he walked in the room he just radiated 'funny'. I really hope he gets through this OK.

If by chance some day you're not feeling well and you should remember some silly thing I've said or done and it brings back a smile to your face or a chuckle to your heart, then my purpose as your clown has been fulfilled.

Thoughts are with his loved ones right now.

Lots of love my magical brother.

Tom's cigarette eating routine has to be one of the most original and iconic routines anyone has ever dreampt up Have never watched the explanation on his DVD set, because it's just too good to reduce to a method. And it seems to fit his personality to a T. This now is horrible news. Best wishes for a speedy and lasting recovery.

I just saw him on Burn Unit talking about how he was beating cancer. This is too bad. Great guy, great magician.

I used to go to the foolery a couple times a month. I lived about 3 hours away and learned more about performing from Tom than any trick or video. Tom was simply the best bar magician on the planet. Wish you well

This is sad news indeed. I remember seeing Tom perform and lecture back in the early 90's at NYC's Mostly Magic restaurant. It was the greatest lecture I've ever attended. Tom made me laugh so hard, for those few moments I felt like a kid again. Here's to wishing him a speedy recovery!

I spoke with him last year at the Nemcon convention in Connecticut about his Mullica wallet . I just performed a gig & told him how excited I was about using his wallet at the gig . He was demonstrating his new wallet . I got a photo with him he is a a very humble guy & was very nice to me & my fiancé . I wish him a very speedy recovery !

I remember well watching Tom at a Midnight Madness event during a World Magic Summit back in Washington DC. Laughed so hard it hurt the next day.
