Shin Lim On America’s Got Talent

Posted by Michael on August 15th, 2018

Shin Lim was one of two magic acts (the other being escape artist Lord Nil) on the first live round of America’s Got Talent last night. Before his act he pointed out while other acts could add fire and such, he was going onstage with just his deck of cards but he thought he would still be stepping up his performance. Do you agree? Tune in to NBC tonight to see if he is continuing to the next round.

Broadway World is reporting Derek DelGaudio’s show In & Of Itself, which is beginning its final week at the Daryl Roth Theatre in New York, is breaking records for the venue.

Forward has a feature on the museum Uri Geller is planning in a 19th century soap factory.

Don’t forget voting has begun on America’s Got Talent… it is open until 7:00 AM Eastern Time each Wednesday following a live show so if you haven’t voted for Lord Nil or Shin Lim yet (and you are in the US) go to NBC.com and vote now!

Finally, this is the coolest story of the day… maybe even the whole summer. It’s the lead off video. Steven Bridges talks about being in Solo!

Footwear News is not one of our normal sources, but they did just run on piece on David Copperfield and Chloe Gosselin.

Finally, The CW has finally come to the Joplin, Missouri area… which doesn’t matter much to 99.9% of iTricksters, but the Joplin Globe had an interesting piece on the network’s history and why folks should arrange their antennas to pick it up. Top of the heap: Penn & Teller: Fool Us.
