Close Up. Up Close. - Vol. 3 - by Joshua Jay
Joshua Jay has been busy.
He has performed or lectured in over thirty countries and on national television. He wrote two best-selling books on magic and has been the monthly trick editor for MAGIC magazine for over three years.
He has won numerous national and international magic awards, including the Las Vegas World Seminar. He has completed two sold-out runs of his one-man show, At Home On Stage.
And, as of this moment, he’s tipping it all.
Volume 3 explores Joshua’s favorite genre: formal card magic. It’s Joshua Jay, a deck of cards, and an astounded audience. The range of effects is equaled only by the range of methods—Joshua uses a clever blend of subtlety, sleight-of-hand, and gaffs for maximum impact. Also included is a detailed study of Triumph, the Bluff Pass, and extra footage of Joshua’s gambling exposé, shot in a live theater.
Trumped Triumph: A Triumph routine with an unbelievable climax. This utilizes a fascinating principle and other ideas are included by Darwin Ortiz and Karl Heinn.
Silent Card Routine (performance only): See the formal, elegant, six-minute opening of Joshua’s one-man show, shot live in front of the usual sold-out theater.
Triple Thought-of Card: Three thought-of cards. No questions asked. No preparation. No gimmicked cards. No sleights. Three thought-of cards. Works every time.
Back in Time: Joshua’s workhorse Triumph routine. The presentation, the structure, the sleights, the timing…it’s all worked out, ready to become your go-to card routine.
