The Season 29 premiere profiles magician, author, actor and historian Ricky Jay. He started in his primary profession, magic, at the age of 4, when he served as apprentice to his grandfather Max Katz, an accomplished amateur magician. The documentary features footage from Jay's one-man shows and TV appearances, including a spot with Steve Martin on Dinah Shore's 1970s' talk show; and clips of such great 20th-century magicians as Cardini, Slydini, Al Flosso, Dai Vernon and Charles Miller.
