Who is he?
Shimshi was born 1979 in Tel-Aviv Israel. His first performance as a magician was at the age of 13. After 7 years of performing magic in Israel, Shimshi moved to America and pursued his lifelong dream to open his own show in Las Vegas.
Los Angeles was the first stop where he regularly appeared at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, California. In the years 2002 and 2003, Shimshi was a 3 time consecutive winner of the Strolling Olympics Award by the Academy of Magical Arts.
February 1st. 2004, Shimshi got a phone call requesting him to be the Resident Illusionist for the Mirage Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
After a two year run at the Mirage, he spent a year perfecting his fresh, cutting edge illusions at the word’s Greatest Magic Show at the Sahara and then the “V” Show at the Planet Hollywood Casino.
In 2008, Shimshi was the last magician standing on America’s Got Talent. In 2009 Steve Wynn welcomed Shimshi as the Resident Illusionist and Mentalist at his 2 billion dollar Resort and Casino Wynn | Encore.
Mr. Wynn was so impressed with Shimshi’s talent, that he asked him to create an illusion act for the Hotel’s Featured Show, Le Reve. The illusions that Shimshi created are now an integral part of the show’s success.
After an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Regis and Kelly, Master of Illusions and the new hit Show on SyFy Wizard Wars, Shimshi now resides in Las Vegas as the Resident Illusionist for Wynn | Encore and continues to follow his dream to create a new kind of Illusion Show in Las Vegas.
