Magician of the Week - Shin Lim

Shin Lim has had a couple of busy years since winning America’s got Talent in 2018.

For me personally, I found Shin Lim to reinvigorate card magic. Rather than his whole routines based on standard card tricks, his routines were using the cards as props, sleight of hand colour changing vanishing and interesting routines. His performances being packed with amazing card changes and wonder.

Winner of America’s Got Talent season 13 and also the follow up show The Champions. A regular who still guests on the AGT series and has also appeared on other shows such as Penn and Teller.

You tube is a good source of Shin Lim videos.

His store is also worth checking out and he has products available such playing cards.

He regularly posts on social media and has a lot of his own cards and effects to buy from stores.

Social media links follow at end of profile.



Shin Lim is the 2015 world FISM CHAMPION for close up card magic and is the only person in the world to win America’s Got Talent TWOtimes.

A self-proclaimed "SLEIGHT OF HAND ARTIST". LIM admits that he is actually NOT a magician , nor a wizard, and has NO intention of LYING to the audience.

He performs carefully SELF-CHOREOGRAPHED routines rather than pretending to defy the laws of Physics. Combining Dexterity, Precision and Grace, he has distilled a Lifetime of training into a devious display of DANCING DIGITS. His mind-boggling finger moves are so MASTERFUL, that the audience is left to wonder what if their eyes have seen is truly possible.
