Joshua tips the work on his twelve-minute act, including his Ambitious Card
and borrowed ring routines. He’s performed this award-winning act all
over the world, and now you’ll have a peek at the thinking behind it.
Also included are performance clips from his acclaimed one-man show, a detailed
study of his Discreet Displacement sleight, and a special screening of The
Heckler, Joshua’s magic-themed short film.
Losing Diamonds: Visually flick the pips off the wrong card and change it
into a signed selection.
The Remote Control: A signed card is controlled by a remote held by a spectator.
The routine climaxes with the discovery of the same signed card inside the
remote’s battery compartment.
The Aspirin: The opener and closer to Joshua’s act—produce an
aspirin bottle and later reveal a signed selection inside…without ever
touching the bottle.
The Discreet Displacement: This easy-to-do sleight can be used as a control,
force, or switch. You’ll learn several effects possible, including…
Discreet Displacement Collectors: An in-the-hands version of this Roy Walton
classic that takes place in less than a minute.
Ringin’ Alarm: A borrowed finger ring (and a ring finger—no joke)
is discovered inside an alarm clock…just in the nick of time!
Plus: The Jay Change, D.D. Thought-Of Card, and lots more.
Extra Feature: “The Heckler,” a short, fictional film written,
starring, and co-directed by Joshua Jay. This is what happens when you mess
with a magician.
