"Shimshi is the best... He makes people believe in Magic." -Steve Wynn

"I've seen a lot of magicians, I've never seen anything like that before." -Hugh Jackman

"You are messing me up..." -Michael Jackson

"This is the best slight of hand I have ever seen." -Larry King

"You are like E.T." -Steven Spielberg

"Dazzling" -New York Times

What will he teach?



Shimshi will teach you how to make more money... a lot more money.

You'll learn how to be wildly successful performing strolling magic without having to design a large-scale illusion show.

He'll explain exactly how you can attract the kind of high-end clientele that can afford to pay a lot more for your services and explain how to get them to pay top dollar, and exactly what, and how to charge.

He's going to share many tips for making strolling gigs easier and teach you how to turn free shows into better-paying gigs.

You're going to receive important marketing advice, including what kind of business card to have and what your website should look like and say about you.

He'll talk about how to increase your Perceived Value through your appearance and share his tips on how to get more bookings.

There will also be a section on "making art" vs. "making money" and how to select your material by knowing which tricks are for you and which are for your audience.

Sure, he'll teach you some magic tricks to illustrate his points, but his advice will make this the lecture that more than pays for itself!

If you'd like to vastly increase your earnings as a magician, tune in here, to Penguin Live, to learn the success secrets of Shimshi.

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.

It was Ok.. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 1st, 2014
Points i enjoyed or learned somthing new from this lecture :
How to dress as a strolling magician
Details on designing fancy buisness cards and websites
How to get started in strolling
Little details on handling invisble thread and his hookup

But honestly i was disappointed with the magic part , he taught barely 3 effects that i think every magician knows , i was hoping for more.And the buisness tips apply mostly if you are performing in very fancy place with all the rich people around which is rarely the case.

i prefered Oz's lecture on buisness its much more rich in ideas.

Shimshi tipped SOLID GOLD! Report this review

Hands down, one of the best lectures I've seen ( I saw my first one in the 1970's, so I've seen a few;-)

It would have cost an expensive consulting fee to have someone with Shimshi's credentials share these inside tips on marketing yourself to get gigs.

The magic he performed AND taught was the exact magic he performs at the Wynn Casino and at private gigs. You could do a strolling or restaurant gig and only perform these effects, that's how powerful they are.

Remarkable Lecture!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 1st, 2014
If you are someone who loves working at events or do table hopping or walkaround magic and you don't buy this, then you are missing out! In fact, even if you don't do those things, if you are a magician and you don't buy this then you are not thinking clearly.

This lecture was absolutely incredible, and the tips given were pure gold. All that I can say is thank you Shimshi, you are the man for giving this advice away.

There should be no doubt in your mind about getting this, because you will earn 100 fold in just one show if you do.

Very talented, driven individual. The vid is very informative based on experience. I disagree with Shimshi's attitude about lying to promote yourself. I recommend the product though.

Every magician should watch and listen Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 2nd, 2014
Don't listen to everyone "he only teaches 3 tricks" WHO CARES!

What he talks about is GOLD and every magician should listen and take careful notes!

Magicians need to listen and learn more business then tricks!

Grab a pen and take notes!

Finally, Professional tips that work for making money Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 2nd, 2014
Look, I love learning new tricks at lectures ( Tannens, Fantasma or Penguin Live ) but there comes a point were you want to get beyond the strictly hobby level. Shimshi delivered on that, BIG TIME!

For restaurant work, I wish I had a nickel for every "Pro" that gave a formula to offer a free night to try you out, how much to charge and to make sure to ask for a meal Good luck following that advice if you like massive rejection, because 99% of them will turn you down.

Shimshi tipped a different technique for getting restaurant work and guess what? IT WORKS! I went to an upscale Brooklyn restaurant today and asked for the GM, made my pitch and I got the job. I did only one trick ( SPUN by Morgan Strebler ). I'll work Fri and Sat nights.

I went in and did exactly what Shimshi said to do and I got the gig. No offer for a free night to try me out, no begging for a meal, etc. I was shocked how easy this is.

Shimshi also taught his bread and butter credit card trick and an incredible color change ( which Dia Vernon said was one of the best tricks you could do for laymen ).

If you want to start making money with your magic, then this is the lecture for you.

Shimshi penguin live Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 2nd, 2014
Ive wanted to get into strolling magic for a long time and i never want to get a realmjob other than performing magic and in this lecture there were so many golden nuggets of wisdom given to me by shimshi. I did not go into this lecture wanting tricks but wanting the priceless advice shimshi gave.

As magicians we need to remember that we are in showbuisness a lot of us now the show part of the equasion but not a lot know about the buisneess aspect.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 6th, 2014
Great lecture. This guy knows what he's talking about. Packed with great tips for semi pro going pro magicians.
If you're looking for new magic tricks I would say pass on this. But if you're looking for inspiration to make something of yourself in magic as a business. I would say buy now!!!
I won't tell you any of the secrets, for that you have to buy. Let's just say after watching this lecture. I worked on my website for two days straight and I'm more then happy with my results. My friends and clients are complementing me left and right.

Really enjoyed the lecture from Shimshi. I have been watching the money I spend on magic lately & purchasing only quality items that I feel would fit my routine. When I saw what Shimshi promised I decided to risk the small investment & felt it was exactly what I needed to see & hear with where I am in my career. It certainly opened up my eyes to several things I had been doing that were hindering my growth. Thank you Shimshi & Penguin Magic! Best $25 I've spent in a long time.

This lecture is not so much about tricks and that's OK. It's about the business of magic. Some people are upset that there were only a couple of tricks taught, but not me.

His tips on business is outstanding. It'll help you make more money. Thanks for having Shimshi.

Please have more lectures on the business side of magic, Penguin. It's wonderful!
