In comments to Herb's Magic Jay provided details about the development of the piece that he will perform on The Tonight Show. "The tough thing was, nothing in my show translates to late-night television," Jay said. All the pieces from the show are quite environment-specific, and so we (we being my collaborators on the piece, Danny Garcia and the Other Brothers) put together a fun, dare-I-say comedy piece that will play big and fit the time limit we've been given. It's a huge departure for me, which I love, and it's nothing at all like my show. And I was very fortunate that some buddies in Vegas allowed me to perform the piece on their shows each night for a week, so I could test some of the sequences before we run it on The Tonight Show."
It's been a busy time for Jay who yesterday, in addition to delivering a sold out lecture at Tannen's, also announced that he and Andi Gladwin, his partner at their magic company, Vanishing, Inc, have acquired Dan and Dave Buck's The Art of Magic enterprise. The Art of Magic markets an extensive line of instructional videos by such conjurors as Asi Wind, Ricky Smith, Jason England, Juan Tamariz, and Jared Kopf to name a few. In addition Jay and Gladwin are producing two magic conferences in January. They are presenting The Session, held January 11th to 13th in London and then Magifest in Columbus, Ohio, January 17th to 19th.
Six Impossible Things will run at Wildrence, 59 Canal Street. For additional information including the show schedule and a link to purchase tickets, go to: siximpossiblethingsshow.com
