Johnny Thompson 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's widely known as a mentor and teacher of magic, and has worked behind the scenes to develop tricks with Penn & Teller, Lance Burton, and Criss Angel, among others.

He has been featured on many episodes of Criss Angel's Mindfreak, the "Hair" episode of Penn and Teller's Bullshit!, and the film The Aristocrats.

He is also a bass harmonica player.
