Harry King was an illusionist and mentalist most active in America during the 1930's and 1940's.

He started in 1909 as an amusement park illusionist, working seasons in both the United States and Canada.

By the 1930's, King was performing as a nightclub mentalist. For several years, he partnered with Karl George in an act billed as "The Rajah Brothers". By the end of the decade, he was married and performing with his wife as "Harrison King and Zerita", which was changed to "Harry King and Zorita".
