My favorite show is the X-Files. And my favorite episode is the one with Ricky Jay. Rest In Peace good sir. May you be doing faros with the Professor.

This makes my heart hurt. Ricky always reminded me of an uncle I had growing up, so I felt a strong connection with him at a young age. It's sad to see him go.
But I am thankful for everything he has given us.

RIP friend

Sad news indeed. I was fortunate enough to see his "52 Assistants" show in the UK back in 1999. Such a delightfully intimate and spellbinding experience from a truly engaging performer.

He was an idol.

I was lucky to met him at the Yankee Magic Gathering, when he stopped by to visit.

Last night, for the first time in a while, I said to myself "I should read Ricky Jay's New Yorker article"......... and then I find this out?

Sad and weird............ RIP to, in my opinion, one of the most thoughtful and skilled in the craft!!!
