Bill Watson to MC Matinee

Bill Watson will be the Master of Ceremonies for the Saturday Matinee at the 2010 Get Together.

Whether he is delivering the “Welcome to Colon” address at the Magic Get Together, or working behind the scenes with the stage crew, Bill Watson is everything that is right about magic and the Get Together. Born into show business (His father, Monk, was a legendary comic magician who worked with Jack Benny and was an early supporter of Bob Hope) and growing up with Harry Blackstone Jr it was certain that not only some, but much of that Colon magic had rubbed off on Bill. A great entertainer in his own right and a wonderful MC for any occasion, Bill was able to successfully balance his love of magic with several successful careers including working in Washington as a lobbyist for a telephone company. Now retired from the politics of Washington, Bill chose to make his home in the same house his father and grandfather lived in right here in Colon MI.
