Who is Shin Lim?
Shin Lim is a young magician, known for his fast-paced card tricks. He prefers to be called a sleight of hand artist, according to his website.
He’s in his mid-20s and was born in Canada but raised in Singapore.
According to his website: ‘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.’
Shin has won an FISM World Champion of Card Magic award.
He’s self-taught in his craft, which makes him that much more interesting to watch. He used YouTube tutorials and a deck of playing cards to practice.
Shin Lim Instagram
Shin Lim’s Instagram is full of sleight of hand tricks involving cards and coins. He often redirects viewers to his YouTube page where he posts tutorials for other aspiring tricksters.
Shin has teased his appearance on America’s Got Talent Season 13 several times. He posted a photo of himself standing before a neon sign bearing the show’s name as well as clips from his first audition and his Judges Cuts tricks.
