The Sleight of Hand Paradox

The Sleight of Hand Paradox

Sleight of hand magic is one of the oldest performing arts in the world. It’s used for magic tricks, it’s used to show skill and it’s also used to cheat and steal. By looking at the origins of sleight of hand, and tracing the evolution of some of these clever moves, you soon start to see there’s a bit of a problem here. Welcome to the ‘Sleight of Hand Paradox’.

Jack Rhodes is the northern working class every-man and not exactly your typical ‘magician’. 
With a background in close-up magic and stand up comedy, Jack has been creating ‘comedy, magic and nonsense’ videos on YouTube since 2020. 
Since then he has amassed over 125 million views across social media and has firmly established his presence as a magician who doesn’t take himself too seriously.
Combining self-deprecation and trickery with an off-beat northern approach, Jack’s unique delivery of comedy and world-class sleight of hand dexterity ensures even non-magic fans will enjoy the show.
His distinct performance style crossed with a unique mix of jokes and skill will appeal to all walks of life and is a sure-fire hit for any event.
