“I consider Joshua Jay an important emerging voice in our art”…David Blaine

 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 our perceptions, because the secret is right in front of you!

Joshua Jay has been called magic’s Renaissance man by “Magic Magazine” and has performed in over 50 countries and appears regularly on national television (most recently on “Good Morning America” and the “Today Show.”)  As an author, he has written 13 books for magicians including the best-selling: “MAGIC: The Complete Course” and was the monthly trick editor for “Magic Magazine.”  As a consultant, he has developed commercials for HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” and “Boardwalk Empire,” plus designed toys for “Marvel Comics.” As for magicians, he has won 1st Place in “The World Magic Seminar,” “Columbus Magic Fest,” Tannen’s International Magician’s Competition,”  twice at the “International Battle of Magicians,” named “Magician of the Year” by Society of American Magicians and is the co-owner of “Vanishing Inc.”

Joshua Jay’s Lecture will teach effects with cards, coins, dollar bills, matches, books, and more. You will see mentalism, close-up magic, and parlor effects, as well as his game-changing talk, “Decisions.”  Here is just a sample of what he will explain in detail:  Hitchcock: Part mystery story, part card trick, ALL magic. A card trick that astounds even parlor crowds.  Cornered Complete: A borrowed bill appears in a spectator's wallet, and to end, the torn-off corner of the bill is restored with a flash of fire.  Prism Deck: Joshua's signature color-changing deck routine. Entirely in the hands, visual, and with a surprise ending.  Sherlock: A spectator selects any one of SEVEN decks of cards, thinks of any card in the pack, and hides it. Using the tactics of Sherlock Holmes, you discern which pack was selected and which card was chosen. A magician-fooler and a crowd pleaser. Oh, and the routine is unpublished.  Triad Coins: This is Joshua's latest effect, and is not published. You'll have to come to see what it looks like.  Cylinder and Coins: A NEW handling of this classic effect, in which all the props (except the coins themselves) have been replaced.   As a special bonus: Joshua will perform and explain all the nuances to his latest creation, “Inferno,” which was just voted “Trick of the Year.”

“Good magic hides the trick.  Great magic reveals some sort of truth.  It’s a form of self-expression.  I want my magic to be meaningful.  I want people to find more in it than deception.  People should enjoy magic, of course, but they should also feel connected to others through it.  Magic should cause people to reconsider what they think they know and the way they perceive things.”… Joshua Jay
