    Pretty amazing. 

    Currently trying resist checking out the insensitive and utterly brainless YouTube comments this video no doubt has.

      Actually, there was only a single dickish comment, I’d guess from a fellow magician who felt hands made more difference to how impressive the tricks were than their difficulty.

      I suggested that if he was so jealous, perhaps he should jam his in a blender.

    I’d love to hear reactions from famous magicians to this guy’s skills.

    I’ve heard about people with unusual anatomies performing for entertainment in history as well.

    That last trick caught me breathless in amazement.  So perfect I never want to know how he did it.

    His “whatever” is perfect, not many magicians can pull that off in any circumstances.

      Yeah, he skirts the edge of fascinating you with his unique arm movements, interjecting a touch of awkwardness, getting you to not quite know where he’s going, and then amazing you with the unexpected.  Good stuff.

    Mahdi is definitely in uncharted territory, having to basically invent a whole new technology of card magic.

    Let’s get a show of hands if that was amazing or what!

    Let’s give him a hand for that last trick.  Amazing!

    I’m bowled over.

    The first bit was plenty impressive, IMO… he just kept nonchalantly doing the apparently impossible, and varying it.

    And the last bit was just staggering. Total WTF.
