Recognized worldwide as a master performer and creator, Jay’s shows are often called, “The closest thing to real magic you will ever see.”

Berry regularly headlines top international venues and magic conventions, performing everything from close-up to stage with peerless grace and elegance.
In his new lecture, Jay pushes the frontiers of the Art ever further with powerful magic that is both practical and versatile.

He at once embraces classic methods and effects while challenging outdated and outmoded ways of thinking. In doing so, he is able to fuse the best from the past with the best of the present to create magic for the future.

Everything in the lecture is directly from his personal “A” list of effects and, as such, is time-tested in real world conditions. His original methods are ultra-smooth, starting clean and ending clean.

He will perform and teach the very latest, state-of-the-art effects with The Thumb Tip and Eclipse Tip, The Cloaking Device, The FS/2 Gimmick, The Finger Fazers, The Ring and Ribbon and more! He will also demonstrate his brand new JSB Topit design, widely regarded as the best ever conceived.

In this presentation, Jay will pay close attention to a number of effects and techniques that work exceptionally well for strolling magic. His personal criteria demands that all of these effects be strong, highly visual, angle-proof and instantly reset. These are routines that Jay uses in strolling and table magic around the globe where he regularly commands $500 an hour and up.

When time allows, Jay will also perform and teach a number of original card effects and techniques. This is often the biggest surprise for magicians, who don’t realize Jay’s mastery also extends into the realm of cards.

In short, an evening with Jay Scott Berry is filled with wonder, surprises and inspiration. He is a consummate entertainer and approaches every lecture with the same commitment to excellence, attention to detail and enthusiasm that have become his trademark in the Art of Magic.

Non Members of the Parent Assembly (magicians only) will be permitted to attend for an entry fee of $25
