In its various incarnations this intimate theatre show featured original magic created and performed by Jay, all dealing with human emotions and inhibitions. Taboo topics were not off the table. The aim of the show was to explore the connection between the human condition through the performance of magic and comedy. A black comedy. Despite further offers to perform, Jay ceased Magick & Mayhem in 2009 to focus on exploring other topics and concepts through the performance of magic.
