Is there any video available of Jay Marshall performing his Troublewit routine?

This listing is incorrect. Jay Marshall is NOT performing Troublewit on this or any Stevens tape. The person writing the description at Magic Inc confused the changing of paper hats in the Juan Escudero routine by Jay as Troublewit.

There is no know video of Jay Marshall performing Troublewit.

Thanks, David. This was going to be my next purchase. I'm still going to get it anyway. I love watching Jay.

Didn't he ever do Troublewit on the Sullivan show? I think he appeared 18 times. I wish that footage would be made available somehow.

I asked the same question at Magic Inc and was told they have documented 8 Sullivan appearances, but haven't been able to go beyond that. They didn't think he did Troublewit on Sullivan.

At Frank Herman's memorial service I was told some guy had a video of Skipper Frank doing Troublewit, but even though he promised me he'd get me a tape, he's never come through. Disappointing.

You'll like Jay's tape. It was done 20 years ago and he is in top form. Much of what he does comes right out of Martin Gardner's Encyclopedia of Impromptu Magic, then there's Lefty and the Juan Escudero bit. Worth having for the last two alone.

Jay Marshall performed Troublewit on the "Magic Palace" This was a show from Canada that featured
Magicians from all over the world. I remember that Jay told me that he wrote his sequence of shapes on the end of the prop. But knowing Jay I'll bet that he never had to look at it! I saw this as well as his hand shadow routine and his routine with the donut shaped piece of felt ( chapography, please excuse spelling)
