In 2011, Farquhar was a contestant on UK show Penn and Teller: Fool Us, in which the aim is to perform a trick in front of Penn and Teller and hope that they are unable to work out how it is done. Farquhar successfully fooled them by creating the illusion of a signed card appearing reversed inside of a brand new (and shrink-wrapped) deck and won the opportunity to perform in Las Vegas as a result.

Performance Style: Shawn’s unique quick wit, spontaneous humor and breathtaking skill has earned him accolades from around the world. He offers a fast paced, audience participation experience that will draw everyone into an evening of entertainment you will not soon forget.

Shawn is known for two tricks. The first is when a signed card appears in a sealed deck. The second is a trick called Shape Of My Heart.
