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. 

This week for Take Two, Jamy Ian Swiss spotlights one of the last of the great nightclub-era magicians, Roy Benson. Discover why Benson was so influential and what made him extraordinary.
