"As Seen on Discovery Channel 's Grand Illusions: The Story of Magic"
One of magic's most eclectic and accomplished rising stars, Joshua Jay has a purpose: to show people that things aren't always as they seem. And that's important, because seeing things differently is where fascination, inspiration and hope come from. Through his performances, blending sleight of hand, psychology and wit … through his photography, film and art … through his writing, lecturing and innovation … Joshua Jay challenges you to challenge your perceptions, because the secret is right in front of you!
He has performed and lectured in over 40 countries and has been seen on Discovery Channel 's “Grand Illusions: The Story of Magic” & FOX's “Lance Burton's Young Magician's Showcase.” He has won First Place in The World Magic Seminar, Columbus Magic Fest, Tannen's International Magician's Competition and twice at the International Battle of Magicians and was the youngest magician to ever attend Fechter's Magic Invitational. Not only is he the monthly trick editor for the largest independent magazine for magicians, “Magic,” but he is also a critically acclaimed author. At the age of only 25, he has written five bestselling books on magic: “Magic Atlas” (published in five languages), “Sleight of Hand & A Twist of Fate,” “Destroyers-The Superlative Magic of Troy Hooser,” “Session-The Magic of Joel Givens,” “FiveFortySeven” and has produced a series of top-selling instructional DVDs: “Talk About Tricks” and “Close Up, Up Close.”
Joshua Jay's Talk About Tricks Lecture will teach effects using borrowed bills, a remote control , pocket change, cards, coins and impromptu objects. There will be close-up magic, stand-up magic and even mentalism! Several items will be work-shopped during the lecture, and everyone will be encouraged to fold bills and learn card sleights. He will teach you how to be creative with your magic, how to think about your magic and why we do magic!
