Ricky Jay

Ricky Jay passed away a few days ago i believe at the age of 70. He was on Letterman a lot. One of if not the best ever at card tricks. He was amazing at sleight of hand. He also did some acting. I'm surprised no one's mentioned him here. If this is in another thread apologies. This guy was King and deserves recognition.



Hope you never played three card monte with him.....
