Ricky Jay!

Oh man, I love this guy, arguably the best magician in the world right now.  From Vanity Fair:
Ricky Jay might just be the greatest living sleight-of-hand artist, but he’s never marketed himself to the level of becoming a household name, like David Blaine or David Copperfield. He doesn’t splatter himself on reality shows, reveal the secrets behind his greatest illusions for late-night cable, or pander with fans on Twitter or Instagram—which makes him the perfect subject for a documentary on the PBS American Masters series, which airs this week, Ricky Jay: Deceptive Practice.
I'm tuned in right now.  I wanted to see him so bad when he was on Broadway but just never got the chance.  This might be the next-best thing.
