Author, How Magicians Think: Misdirection, Deception, and Why Magic Matter

This week, Ira spoke with Joshua Jay, author of How Magicians Think: Misdirection, Deception, and Why Magic Matters. In this conjuring episode of Ira’s Everything Bagel, Joshua talks about his journey through magic starting at age seven when his father showed him a trick; why it’s important to think like your audience; pushing your boundaries; why the best part of magic is the part most people never get to see; what it was like to interview David Copperfield, Teller, and David Blaine; why his book skirts around the secrets of magic but deepens people’s appreciation of the subject; and why he wrote this love letter to magic.

Joshua has performed on stages in more than100 countries. He was awarded the top prize at the World Magic Seminar and has fooled Penn & Teller on their hit show, “Fool Us.” He holds a Guinness World Record in card magic. Jay has performed magic on numerous television shows, including appearances on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon and “The Late, Late Show” with James Corden.

He is the author of several books, including the best-selling MAGIC: The Complete Course, and his new book, How Magicians Think: Misdirection, Deception, and Why Magic Matters.

Joshua has designed illusions for stage and screen, including a recent collaboration with HBO for “Game of Thrones.” He consulted with the United States Postal Service on the design of their postage stamp series, Magic.

He was awarded Magician of the Year 2020 by the Society of American Magicians Parent Assembly for his contribution to the art of magic.
