Shimshi was born 1979 in Tel-Aviv, Israel. His first performance as a magician was at age 13. After 7 years of performing Magic in Israel, Shimshi moved to America and pursued his lifelong dream to perform in Las Vegas. In 2004, Shimshi got a phone call requesting him to be the House Magician for the Mirage Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. After a two-year run at the Mirage, he spent a year performing his fresh, cutting-edge magic at the World’s Greatest Magic show at the Sahara Casino and then the “V” Show at the Planet Hollywood Resort. Shimshi’s magic has taken him around the world- from Princess Grace Theatre in Monaco to the Winter Garden Theater in Berlin Germany, across Europe and Asia. He has also appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Regis and Kelly, Master of Illusions, and was the last magician standing on America’s Got Talent.
