See Jay like you've NEVER seen him before! Performing a killer collection of 16 BRAND NEW effects for honest-to-goodness LAYPEOPLE in a real-life performance setting! No studio audience! No special camera angles!

Taped live and unrehearsed in the fall of 2004 at Toronto's Mr. Greenjean's Restaurant and Bar, this is an extremely rare opportunity to watch Jay "hit the tables" with his unique, off-the-wall, improvisational style. If you work for real people, this DVD is an absolute MUST!

Witness breathtaking magic and mentalism with playing cards, coins, paper matches, autographs, geometric shapes, flash paper and rubber bands. Then learn as Jay teaches each of these closely-guarded "real world" pet routines with his most in-depth explanations EVER!

Fan Mail: The spectator's and the magician's autographs visually change places!
Full Lotus: An inexplicable exchange of a folded joker and a signed card!
Shake & Bake: The coin production that proves, "Hearing is believing!"
Slow Motion Coins: A "coins across" effect as deliberate as it is deadly!
Not This Card!: Jay's favorite handling of Frank Everhardt's "Chicago Opener!"
Shape of Things to Come: A heartstopping, double-climax mentalist's dream!
Real Magic: Freshly written words melt through a dollar bill!
Hypnotarized: A hypnotized spectator starts seeing some truly weird sh*t!
Litmus Test: A blank card first gains, then loses an identity!
Close Contact: Two spectators, one card, and an astonishing occurance!
Deviant Behavior: Four jokers escape from the pack in a most elegant fashion!
Out of Sight: A deck production combined with a bizarre mental routine!
Vital Signs: Paper matches travel in and out of the spectator's fist!
The Phoenix Effect: Fire + mentalism + a signed card = a reputation maker!
Inseparable: The last word on linking rubber band routines!
One of One: A drawing and a playing card undergo a startling transformation!

awesome Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 7th, 2010
The title suggests....very little I guess. But that one word explains a lot. WHAT THIS IS! It's truely awesome. When I got this I was very excited to see a real pro work in real professional settings.

Not only is Jay HILARIOUS on this DVD, but it's professionally filmed. The effects are awesome and high class workers. You need some cards, conis, even a few rubberbands. But the material is worker m aterial and you can perform it at your next gig!

For an overall review of the DVD, I felt it lived up to what it is. We see him lecture and perform for us, but we never see him perform for real laypeaple in a real situation.

Great Sankey stuff Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 7th, 2010
You can't go wrong with a Sankey DVD. There isn't anything really ground breaking here as they are mainly twists on other classic plots or Sankey handling ideas. I think the real benefit of this dvd is being able to see Sankey perform his own work. You can really see how hard some of this material hits the spectator. If you don't have every Sankey DVD then this is a must.

AMAZING! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 4th, 2010
I can't tell you how much of a value this DVD is. It is a SUPER powerful, practical collection of good, intense original magic...

...but the real value here lies in Sankey's amazing, funny way with laypeople. As arguably one of the funniest, most original guys on the planet, getting to see him KILL with some creations of his in front of a REAL audience at a REAL restaurant really is worth FAR more than what you will pay here for this DVD.

I can't recommend this DVD enough; it really is a value that NO performer should be without.

The Best of Sankey Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
If you can only get one Sankey dvd I and many others strongly recommend that it would be this one. This dvd is so packed with great material that it might overwhelm you at first, because there is so many great tricks to start learning! If your on the fence about this one or just need some more tricks to add to your routine, don't hesitate! BUY NOW!

Lots of good stuff Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
This is what DVDS should be like. Lots of material to choose from and master! Not only that...but there is something for every one: coin, mentalism, card, and even fire;) ADD to card if you are like me and like to get my bang for my buck and are a sankey fiend!

One of Sankey's Best! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 1st, 2007
I admire Sankey's work, I am a huge fan of his, and I own A LOT of his products. However this DVD is by far one of his best that I've seen. If you are a restaurant worker, you NEED this DVD! His routines are cleverly though out and perfect for tableside, with plenty of opportunities for comedy and audience participation. The best part is that I actually got to see Sankey perform for real people. I love flashy tricks, and in my opinion, The Phoenix Effect was worth the price of this whole DVD. All in all, if you need some more close-up material taught by a true professional - add to cart now!

Great.. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 15th, 2006
This is my first Sankey DVD. Most of the tricks you will probably like and use. It is a great mix of magic with cards, coins, etc. if that is what you like. The best part is that Sankey is hilarious. Great explanations.

Jay's Best DVD Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 11th, 2006
This is by far my favorite Jay Sankey DVD. All of the magic is just so practical and works so well in a restaurant setting, as well as many others. There are so many powerful and fun effects included on this DVD. This is highly recommend and you are guaranteed to find some material to add to your repertoire.

Probably the best Sankey dvd Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 24th, 2006
If you were going to buy just one Jay Sankey dvd, this would probably be the one you want. Unlike some of his other stuff, which is frankly quite weak and dated, the material on this dvd is powerful, high impact, very commercial, and practical. I cant think of any trick on this dvd that I could not fit into an act somewhere. Add to this the fact that he teaches everything in minute detail and you have yourself the perfect Sankey dvd. He does not just go over the mechanics of each trick, but he actually goes over the psychology behind the tricks and how and when it is best to present them. This dvd wont just teach you those tricks but it will give you invaluable little nuggets of information on the psychology of magic.
