- Jay Sankey
If it's eye-popping magic you want, you've come to the right place! Nobody creates sleight-of-hand magic for the eyes like Jay Sankey. This volume features a power-packed parade of thirteen startingly visual "magic moments." Not to mention more than a few big belly laughs. Watch Jay perform and teach astonishing routines with cards, coins, bills, envelopes, rubber bands, paperclips, pencils and even chopsticks! But we warn you: be prepared to laugh!
Volume Three - "These are the routines that originally 'put me on the map' in the magic world." -Jay Sankey
This is your chance to watch one of magic's most off-beat entertainers perform thirteen of his "bread and butter" routines for a live audience. And because the effects are presented in groups of two and three rather than individually, this is also a unique opportunity to learn from the overall flow of a live Sankey performance!
