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
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.

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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
THIS IS THE DVD!! THIS IS HIS BEST WORK! Seriously, all these tricks are possible!! I USE EVERY ONE
OF THEM! NO JOKE, no offense to jay, but some of his stuff is actually no too practical, BUT THIS!
no no no, 15 HIGH IMPACT TRICKS THAT YOU WILL USE! Jay, i truly respect you for this DVD, and i mean
come on, the price! look at it! pathetic! It works out under a pound a trick........... insane! Jay
