Josh Brown : uses his hands for his profession.... hands get injured.... hands have surgery...... practices magic. This guy just stole the plot of Dr. Strange!!!

Rich Ferguson : Best. Period. Epic as usual buddy!

Martim Schnack : Easy. You can see at 0:34 when he makes a deal with Satan and the devil takes over his body.

JK Steen : I've been learning some card trickery recently and here's what I noticed... … … … ... ... this guy is good.

Hans Ricour : that guy... so beautiful to watch, one of the few where i don't want to know how, but just enjoy the show, just so poetic and beautiful! love it, well done putting this routine together

Michael Weston : it's very obvious, people. he grew another set of hands from his surgery and painted them black.

Travis Varnum : If anyone is wondering, the pen Penn is using at 6:45 is The Pilot © Precise V7 RT™ . It is the pinnacle of consumer grade retractable mechanical pens. Without compromising ink flow, the roller ball is placed on the end of a purely cylindrical hub. Rather, one could argue that it promotes ink flow. This structure provides for more fluid handwriting as well, lending way to neat handwriting for any left-handed Doctor-writer. But the fun doesn't stop there. The pen comes with a stainless steel clip. Many have issue with that due to the risk of tearing one's pocket on the clip, but the clip of the Pilot © Precise V7 RT™ is constructed such that all harsh edges are beveled inward, completely eliminating the need for a pocket protector ever again. The final glory of the Pilot © Precise V7 RT™ pen is its user friendly retraction system. The click of the pen is muffled in a dense plastic casing that minimizes the annoyance factor of a pen clicking. Not to mention, the spring of the pen has a great deal of potential energy. You never have to second guess yourself on the retracted state of your pen. You will know undoubtedly when you have closed or opened your Pilot © Precise V7 RT™ pen, and you will know when you buy your pack of 6 at any participating OfficeDepot for $8.44 that there is no more correct choice in the saturated market of consumer grade retractable pens. And now one of the world's greatest magicians has used it.

jrmitchell12 : SPOILER (I THINK) DON'T READ FURTHER UNLESS YOU WANT TO KNOW A MAJORITY OF THE TRICK . . . . There are two main parts to this trick that I can see: 1. The deck. 1a. The deck consists mainly of cards that have blue backs on one vertical half of the back of each card, and red backs on the other vertical half of that same back side of the card. He uses slight of hand (extremely skillfully) to change the top card to make it appear as though all the other cards are entirely that color, but they are not. Once place to look for this would be at 3:25 where he manipulates that top Ace card from red to blue but is very careful to rotate the 4 cards 180 degrees on the way down and fan the opposite blue sides of the cards. 2a. Similar are the face sides of the cards. All but the top face card are vertically halved regular playing card pictures and vertically halved "Penn and teller - Did I fool you" drawings. He just skillfully manipulates that top card to make it appear as all the cards underneath are entirely those drawings. You can even see at 4:38 in that he is just fanning out the other half of the cards and dropping the two top cards (the "You?" and the "P") on the ground 2. The table This one stumped me for a while, but I think what he is doing from 1:37 to 3:20 is using is a non-reflective black coating on this table with most of the cards in this section also having backs (and edges) that are black and non-reflective. If you watch this section of the video with this in mind, I think it appears to be obvious. For example, at 2:17, you can see him put the Ace on the table and flip the other two heart cards off the table (with the tip of that Ace) into his other hand (very hard to do). Also, when you see him making those cards "disappear" he basically just turns them over and you don't see them any longer. I was amazed with this trick, and even having figured out a majority of the ways in which this is done, it is still just amazing (maybe even more so knowing all the things that could go wrong). The skill and practice he put into this is just crazy and I wish him all the best with the injury he endured. I'm not absolutely positive on the end where he puts the deck carton back on (looks like he may just place the deck in a half of a deck carton and then flips it over to show the other side of the deck with that half carton). Let me know what you think about the analysis. Great trick!

Tim Owen : That mat is very black...

shubus : It''s not often you see such a perfect routine. Mind blowing!

James Crenshaw : 2nd time he's BLOWN MY MIND, and with a recent injury no less! This guy, just WOW!

Christopher Law : Penn just couldnt resist lmao

Jeff Ward : His YouTube channel is sick

Veto : This guy is pulling some mean Micheal Jackson faces

Werner Heisenberg : SPOILER ALERT I think the first part of the trick (until 3:30) is done with cards with black non-reflecting backs. You can actually see him pick cards up from the black canvas, and remove cards from the canvas by pulling them towards him and letting them drop down from the table. He is wearing a black non-reflecting shirt so we dont see the back of the cards even if he holds them in an obvious manner.

Redoralive : Trying to think, what kind of trick was he doing when he served his tendons? Disappearing razor blades?!?

pankaj pradhan : did anyone read all the comments just to see some explanation for his tricks and got disappointed because no body has answer for that?

Eragon Saphira : Even with 0.25 speed, he is fast enough to hide cards in many situations

David Saunders : Shin Lim has been my favorite both times he's been on the show. There's just something so beautiful, poetic, and pure about his magic that I find myself laughing out loud like a child. Thank you Shin, for giving me that experience!

Don Bond : Bet Alison was wet

Mohammad Kazmi : He performed this on AGT this week 😂, funny how the judges didn't know , but also, I mean the chances of them knowing are low

Ayuwaska Lol : This guy is just incredible!

Steven : Anyone know the music?

Jairemn M : The way he performs is FABOLOUS!

Niceknamed : I started to believe in god

Tom van Rens : Awesome. Pen with the dung dung dung duung! xD

D Pilon : Elegant af

Jordan Mahaffy : Yay shin lim is back

joseph weiss : Amazing skill!! beautiful to watch!! smooth as a slide! although i belibe that Penn and Teller figure out all magicians act that fooled them, with that beeing said after his act on season 2 they probably watched it over and over until they figured out every tiny move and sleight of hand, so they should know his dirty little secrets. so how come they got fooled again?

Darkmage1293 : It's freaky to turn the speed down to .25, and STILL be unable to see how he's doing it. The transition from red to blue backed cards, and blue to messaged is nigh flawless, second only to when Javi was doing his tricks.

u8sumthinbad : Just Amazing Skill.

Shahriar Rahman : Is it only me or he actually looks a lot like MJ?

TheLegend27 : My eyes had no chance

Abhishek Nirgun : He did his FISM it is...and still fooled them????

Loggan : I have most of his products/ tricks, 52 shades of red is soo nice

Shayne Sim : One of the most skillful and masterful magicians ever

Daniel Demers : All I can say is....whoa

dragonWarrior : its the black table. quite obvious. camoflauged with painted black backside of cards too

Catherine Reed : i didn't know this show existed before this morning, and this guy was awesome! i watch the talent shows, and i wonder how the judges are fooled sometimes because even I know the tricks... but this guy? NO IDEA how he did it. ok, so i don't know how the rubicks cube did it on the talent show, nor the telepaths, but most of the rest, i have a good idea. ok, not the cell phone, either, if you know what i mean. that would have totally have been a set up, and then how could anyone vote for him? but this guy???? the cards vanished. not something i could blame on sleeves or hands, they just vanishes. either the cameras were in on it and Penn and Teller lied, or this guy really pulled something new. at least, new to me, and i'm not young anymore.

rerine bae : OMG He looks like a vampire haha

gamepilation : hitted the like before the show even began

Jintaro Kensei : Too much two steps from hell.

the frogman 4318 : the how is pretty easy to figure out, its the skill and grace that he does it with that is amazing

Nicolas Maetz : I know how he did ! Just buy 52 shades of red and you ´ll get it

Kanecobe : he is honestly phenomenal.

altrogeruvah : Fantastic guy, super talented fella.

pancha Subba : How come smoke come out

Mr. Karthik : F ..U xD

SunilTheScienceGuy : Amazing

Not a skateboarder / Spoiler: You are wrong! : I bet the injury was just drama for show. There was no real injury.
