John Fitzsimmons was introduced to the world of magic at the age of 12 by his father, a veteran police officer who was working off-duty at a hotel in Ahwatukee, Ariz. The hotel restaurant featured a magician who dazzled John with his sleight of hand. The finale of his performance involved a card John signed finding its way into a zippered compartment in the magician’s wallet. The next day, John’s dad took him to Easley’s Fun Shop in downtown Phoenix and a career was born.
A decade later John was introduced to the wonder of the sideshow world where he learned many weird and wonderful stunts. His passion for magic and sideshow combines in his performances to create truly one-of-a-kind shows. Over a career that has spanned nearly 20 years, John has appeared on every major TV network in the nation and has traveled across the country to amaze audiences with his unique abilities.
Along with his work as a performer, John also is a technical and creative consultant working with some of the top names in magic. Additionally, parts of his original magic presentations have been seen on TV around the world. John has used his skill to promote various products using magic, from chewing gum and pain reliever to a presidential candidate.
John is a Member and Past President of The International Brotherhood of Magicians (Ring 55), and a Member of The Society of American Magicians. He carries public liability insurance, but is adept enough at his craft to have never needed to use it.
