Johnny Thompson (b.1934( is a Las Vegas illusionist who performs under the stage name "The Great Tomsoni."
Along with his wife Pamela Hayes, he performs a comic magical act The Great Tomsoni & Company in which he plays the role of a dapper but buffoonish vaudeville gentleman. One of his trademarks is producing pure white doves on stage, which are trained to play along with the act once they have appeared.
He has been featured on many episodes of "Criss Angel's Mindfreak", the "Hair" episode of Penn & Teller's Bullshit!, and the film "The Aristocrats".
He is also a bass harmonica player.
