Huge loss for magic

He was great on the X-files

He was great as an actor as well as a master manipulator of his '52 assistants'. Will miss him.

The following video (IMO) is a perfect example of why Ricky Jay was one of the greatest to ever grace our craft.

It is neither spooky, bizarre nor frightening. It is (however), an excellent example of misdirection, timing, wit, humor and presentation. If you like story magic and want to watch a treatise on routining, I think you'll enjoy this. I've seen it many times and never seem to get tired of it!

We should all aspire to some degree of this. . .

The first time I saw Ricky was on his hbo special- 52 assistants. It was so inspiring.

His erudition, eloquence and gravitas set him apart from any other performer of his generation. Unequaled and irreplaceable.

- He achieved fame and adulation, but like the warrior monk or the Hasidic master, he sought perfection. -
