Ricky Jay was born in Brooklyn, New York on January 1, 1946. He was introduced to magic by his grandfather. Throughout the 50s and early 60s, Ricky brought magic to people in a number of non-traditional venues. He became the youngest magician to perform a full magic act on television when he performed on "Time for Pets" in 1953. He also became the first magician to perform his act in comedy clubs, and he became known for performing during rock concerts, famously appearing between an Ike and Tina Turner performance and Timothy Leary's comedy act. In addition to his work as a magician, he has also appeared in such film and television projects as "House of Games", "Learned Pigs and Fireproof Women", "Leap of Faith", "Boogie Nights", "Magnolia", "Mystery Men", "State and Main", "Heist", "Deadwood", "The Prestige", "The Unit", "Lie to Me", and "The Brothers Bloom". He was a sleight-of-hand expert and authored multiple books on the subject. Ricky Jay's public performances were very rare. When he did perform, the tickets were extremely hard to come by. He would perform in very small venues and had a rabid following of A-listers in all realms of the entertainment industry. Ricky and a partner ran a magic consulting firm called Deceptive Practices that advised on various movies, TV shows and other live events. Unfortunately, Ricky died on November 24, 2018 at the age of 72.
