Cosmologists tell us that no information in the Universe is ever lost: information is conserved. Where, now, is the genius that was imprinted on the mind of Ricky Jay? We're all impoverished by the loss of his wonderful personality -- unless it's alive somewhere. R.I.P., Ricky. I look forward to being entertained by you sometime in the (very distant) future.

You'd see how he did this if it was in higher than 240p resolution. Not really, just had to comment this vid quality blows. Fun video though.

Not too many 29-minute youtubes I can sit through, but this one . . . no problem!

It’s wonderful to see when a person, any person, who finds their perfect niche. The profession or hobby or whatever that they just seem so fitted for its as if that person was created just for that job or that job was created just for that person. And here’s one!

Unbelievable. Like Penn and Teller he tells you what he's going to do, does it, and you still are amazed. That is magic.

Tried it four different ways on two browsers, both mobile and desktop; the audio does not work. I can click on any of the suggestions to the right and get audio right away. The controls on the video don't change anything.

That made me tear up instantly. Just heard of his death today. Seeing the pure joy he brought to all those grown men was astonishing. Just look at John C Reilly's face at the egg trick in slow motion at the end.

Yes, he died just this past week. Not a joke...you can verify it on the internet.

I remember him from "House of Games." I actually used to play billiards at the pool room in downtown Seattle (the 211) where a lot of the film was shot. The 211 looked exactly like that in real life, including the pool players in the background who were regulars, not actors. This video and lighting in this video is eerily reminiscent of scenes in that 1987 movie.

Ricky Jay is one of my Favorites. I Love honesty with Magicians. He's not necessarily trying to WOW you with "Magic" or the Trick. He's simply showing you what Years of Practice in Manipulation can do.

Rick Jay its insane, a deck of cards its the only thing he needs, fuck David Blaine with his hunger strike, holding his breath for 7 years, melting coins, giving birth to a lama at the moon.

Aside from Ricky Jay...one of them is Willie Garson and one of them is John C. Riley.

at 8 minute mark, that fat guy is looking at the cards like they're bits of bacon. he's practically salivating.

I work with noise-canceling headphones at work. They work much better than normal earplugs, and most of the day I have only one ear covered. This sounds about right.

Dose anyone know what brand/type of cards he's using?

The video quality is poor so it's hard to tell, but the backs seem to be little bitty diamonds. If that's the case, that would make them Bee Club Specials, pretty standard in Nevada casinos (the ones I am familiar with).
dmrrider1 (3 years ago)
I can do that I just don't want to
Joe Mauro (4 years ago)
Is it true that Ricky marks the deck with urine, so he can read the backs?

If i were to play with Ricky Jay i would insist that He cant deal them cards.
Chi Chi (2 months ago)
ari1234a - He’s already played with allowing poker player across from him making every single decision; shuffling, dealing & cutting. Ricky doesn’t even touch them. Ricky wins every time. Many different top poker players one after the next. It’s insane.
colavfreak2 (5 months ago)
Like that would make a difference.
Randy Sager (2 years ago)
He is not. Why? Because he doesn't cheat he could but he doesn't
Jonathan King (2 years ago)
+ari1234a He's banned from playing at many casinos so I'm pretty sure even if he's not dealing you're not safe

videos with unbalanced audio are completely unwatchable.
gredangeo (4 years ago)
+GrandmaLSRP The uploader didn't know how to make a video. Unbalanced audio is stupid.
Julleeh (4 years ago)
+Mark Schad Oh well okay. Maybe then =) They're just called that officially so from that I picked that.
Jasper O'Reilly (4 years ago)
+Julleeh If they're not flat, they're not monitors. I'm not ragging on the quality of your headphones; I'm indicting the legitimacy of your original post.
GeoJoe2000 (4 years ago)
Why is this being discussed on a Ricky Jay video? 
Julleeh (4 years ago)
+Mark Schad I would call them balanced, not too flat. Headphones with heavy bass, if you mean that, are usually destroying the highs and mids. These ones have clear everything. Also how come everyone say that these are great (in this price range) in headphone communities and reviews if these are bad for music? There are first two reviews I got from Youtube with search word "audio technica ath m50 review" /watch?v=1Va7wOjbg4w and /watch?v=FrXSfhqoz2c just to second my text that these truly are great for also music.  I haven't tried any high price range studio monitor headphones but these are ones with less than 200€ and these are great for music and everything and in my opinion it would be stupid to buy Beats instead of these, no matter that I don't know anything about audio stuff. And these are good for casual users.

I remember Garson from NYPD Blue...he played a nebbishey creep that lived in the building that Bobby Simone inherited.

I believe so, and the chap to his right appears to be another actor, Willie Garson.

DMTsleeper I've seen Mr. Jay's live show (from the front row, as a matter of fact) in Manhattan and I can assure you that he does no editing (nor does he need any) to "make it look like he is better than he really is". He IS that good.
