Ricky Jay on Dai Vernon

From iTricks:
PBS is stepping up the promotion of their airing of Ricky Jay: Deceptive Practice as a part of American Masters next week with a few new clips. In addition to one of Jay on Charlie Millers, they put out this video featuring memories of the incomparable Dai Vernon. Deceptive Practice will air on most PBS station next Friday, January 23; it is the first time a magician has been featured in the American Masters series.

Watch on YouTube:



  1. Anyone know when it is going to air on WNED? I can find no sign of it on the main channel - only on "Thinkbright" whatever the heck that is.

    1. Hi Jon. I can't easily find the info either. I reached out to someone at PBS via Twitter. Will let you know if I hear back.

    2. Hi Jon. This is what I got back "wned.org or pbs.org/americanmasters"

      At http://wned.org/tv-schedules when I searched American Masters it states:

      M'be it's in the listing as Think Bright? Not sure. Hope that helps.

  2. I happen to be in the US at the moment and just found out that the Ricky Jay feature is available on Netflix. No way to check if it is available of the Canadian Netflix but worth a look.

    Only those who get over-the-air digital can see it on ThinkBright.
