"You know from the laughter, smiles, and wide eyes of wonder that we all enjoyed every minute of the show!" Edmondson Branch Baltimore County Library

Tom Lilly

    That strange looking guy in the Hawaiian shirt and saddle shoes is Baltimore’s own Tom Lilly, a performer who combines magic, juggling, fire-eating, and balloonacy with loads of audience participation to produce a show that leaves all ages laughing and wondering.
    “The strangest adult I’ve ever seen!” is the post show comment of one youngster.
    Tom Lilly began performing in 1984 and quickly became a regular at area hospitals and libraries.
    Already in demand on the birthday party circuit, Tom was soon a featured performer on the family stage at the Baltimore City Fair and at the Cloisters Children’s Museum.
    Tom is currently a regular at the Harborplace amphitheater, Artscape, and schools around the state. Summer finds him entertaining at company picnics, summer camps, libraries, or on the boardwalk in Ocean City.
    Books Are A Blast is the show Tom designed to tour libraries throughout the mid-Atlantic.
    Combining magic and Tom’s keen interest in reading, the show has introduced thousands of children to the world’s fastest bookworms, Tom’s take on Lady Liberty and Uncle Sammy, Seemore the Psychic Snake, and Beowulf T. Wonderbunny appearing in his very own bookmobile.
    Using experience gained from eighteen years of teaching high school, Tom knows how to grab and keep an audience’s attention, so when you see that tacky shirt and those saddle shoes, expect what one young fan called “a laughing good time!”
