I have yet to meet a Magician or hobbyist that does not know who Jay Sankey is. Hes definitely a stalwart in the community. His effects are always organic. Where so many 'high tech" gimmicks are being sold, Sankey will show you how to use every objects to make extraordinary effects.

This Live Act was classic Sankey. While I didn't find any one particular effect that stood out for me, his lessons on the psychology of performance and persuasion is something any performer on a large auditorium scale or an intimate living room scale can benefit from.

The recording was not in the usual Penguin Live Studio and so I found the camera angles and audio quality were not as good as other live act recordings. Although Sankey wears a headset I just found the slight echo and lower the expected volume annoying as time passed. The camera angles and lighting were also not the best given the venue space.

In any event, I'm a Sankey fan and so despite the audio and video nuances...this is a good Live Act to download if you're looking to improve your performance skills, audience management and communication while learning some great effects done with everyday and accessible objects.
