Maggy Shiro was born in Ibaragi. When he does magic, he talks "Ibaragi-ben" which is one of the factors that makes the audience laugh more. He made up his mind to become a magician and he went to Tokyo when he was seventeen. There, he went to school for magicians and created his own style.
He became a professional when he was twenty. His own way of magic is not simply doing magic but also making the audience laugh by his art of talking. Wearing a small moustache, he often show the tricks on purpose. He plays the role of a suspicious-looking magician.
He is still active mostly in live performances at vaudeville theaters.
