According to post-modern magic stars Penn and Teller, Jamy Ian Swiss "makes one understand what a terrifying art form pure sleight of hand can be." He has performed internationally for presenters ranging from Fortune 500 companies to the Smithsonian Institution. His television appearances include CBS "48 Hours,", PBS "Nova," "The Today Show," and multiple appearances on "The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson." He is the author of two collections of essays: "Shattering Illusions" and "Devious Standards"; "The Art of Magic," the companion book to the PBS documentary; and has contributed to other works including collaborating with Edward Tufte on "Explaining Magic" in the book "Visual Explanations." In a lengthy profile in "The New Yorker," Adam Gopnik writes, "Swiss is thought to have one of the most masterly sleight-of-hand techniques in the world today... like seeing Yo-Yo Ma."
