Who doesn’t enjoy a little bit of magic in their lives? I certainly do! I got a behind the scenes peek into Six Impossible Things, a magic show that defies all Laws of Nature! Uncover with me the world of Joshua Jay!
When we walk around New York, we find a little bit a magic spread throughout every corner of the city!
And I mean, who in this world does not like a bit of magic? I do!
Joshua Jay is one of the most renowned names today in the world of magic!
He’s performed in over 100 countries, he’s won several prizes, he’s been live in countless TV shows and he even holds a Guinness World of Records for card tricks, which is pretty awesome!
He still holds the title up to this date!
How I met Josh? Well, I met him back in 2011 in Brazil where my brother and I participated in a small shooting he was doing at a friend’s photography studio!
I really thought that we would not fall for his tricks, but…to my surprise, it was truly a-m-a-z-i-n-g!
Now, Josh lives in NY (hum…actually he’s been here for over 10 years!) and started a special show called Six Impossible Things.
I went behind the scenes before his show started, to check out what’s going on, before he goes on stage!
And the magic happens, right behind a blue door…
My experience at the show!
After the shooting with Josh, I actually came back to witness the show and I was in awe all through this interactive experience.
There were only 20 people there, keeping it quite intimate. Every single person was able to participate in one or another magic and engage with Josh during the show.
Plus, each one had a one-on-one with him!
At each magic trick it just kept getting more and more amazing and it truly blew my mind (and everyone that was there). I paid close attention to see if there was any way to figure out how it was done, but some tricks were pretty complex to even try…
What can I say? For one, I don’t want to do any spoiler alerts, but you’ll be sure to see some of the most spectacular magic tricks ever, that even defy all Laws of Nature! Oh, and the art work by Serge Bloch is breathtaking and pretty special!
I LOVED IT and recommend it to every one out there, at every age!
