Close-Up In Concert

"Card tricks may sound passe, but when Swiss holds the deck, jaded attitudes about pick-a-card-any-card rigamarole must be tossed aside … dizzying routines that will make your jaw drop … Swiss' genius lies in his ability to trick you into thinking you can follow his train of thought. Actually, he's just guiding yours along."

"You will be mesmerized by both the view of Manhattan and by the main attraction, world-class master of sleight-of-hand magic, Jamy Ian Swiss. He wants his viewers to see that he really does magic. But can they explain how Swiss correctly guesses the number and suit of a card that an audience member simply thinks of and never says it out loud? On top of his magical dexterity, this ability to read minds astounds!"
