Ricky Jay photographed by Richard Avedon in New York City, March 4, 1993. Mark Singer wrote of the magician: “None of my scrutinizing has yielded a shred of insight into how he does what he does.” http://nyr.kr/11nNIH8
Ricky Jay is a consummate entertainer. I wish this were available in HD, but since it's not, just embiggen it to fill your whole screen, and prepare to be amazed and enthralled by a dazzling performance of the cups and balls, which he calls, "The History Lesson".
