Take Two

BY JAMY IAN SWISS | Welcome to Take TwoEvery Friday I'll be posting a pair of magic performance videos, accompanied by commentary—in essence a projection of curation—with a goal to pen 52 posts. I encourage non-magicians to enjoy these clips along with the magic community, as I intend to avoid outright discussion of methods. All this is subject to some adjustment over time and experience, but these are the goals at the start. 

Jamy Ian Swiss posts a pair of videos on one of magic's most eccentric, hilarious and experienced magicians, Denny Haney, of Denny & Lee’s Magic Studios.
