This week, Ira Sternberg spoke with Shin Lim, currently performing in “LIMITLESS” at The Mirage (Mondays & Thursdays through Sundays at 7:30). In this 30-minute episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Lim talks about his journey from music to magic; his challenges with carpal tunnel syndrome and dyslexia; his close family ties, both in his personal life and his career; his dream to perform in a residency on the Las Vegas Strip; how he developed his magic after first being shown an illusion by his older brother; and why he continues to learn and loves performing.
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 “ two times.
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.
