Award-winning magician Jon Armstrong is best known for his close-up magic and card tricks. Having taken the past year to study and develop new illusions, he performs a number of classic routines with a twist, such as using a tie in lieu of rope in a rope trick, or using rubber bands for a smaller version of the Chinese rings. Though some of his routines are stronger than others, here he proves why he’s considered by some to be one of the best close-up magicians today. His strongest routine blends his amazing ability of card manipulation and use of mathematics (which I won’t give away). With his wry sense of humour, he commands the audience in this thoroughly magical performance.
