I’ve been sitting here in my snowbound living room yelling ‘fuck OFF!!’ at my laptop screen for about 30 minutes…
I can’t remember the last time I was so gobsmacked by a magician!

I don’t suppose he’s any relation to (or took a stage name inspired by) recently department magical legend Ricky Jay?

#7

No relationship between the two. Ricky Jay was a stage name. Joshua Jay is his own.

I think I love him. :smiley:

Joshua Jay is a brilliant magician. He first broke out onto the magic scene when he was very young - as a teen - and published a book. He received a ton of unjustified backlash from the community at the time.

Boy, has times changed. If he comes by in your town for a lecture, go see him. He’s definitely “cut out of the same cloth” as Dai Vernon and the like. Great performer and great thinker of magic.
