First Shown At Magic Live In August, The Messado Rings Completely Sold
Out During That Initial Release.
name’s Mr Messado, I’m going to show you the magic of Messado’s
rings. Are you ready? Gather round let me show you something cool…”
starts the most phenomenal performance of the Linking Rings we’ve
ever seen. At 6ft tall, with a top hat, bow tie and pocket-watch, Messado
stands out on the streets of New York - but it's his sheer class with
a set of rings that stops spectators in their tracks.
Despite a startling series of flourishy links, unlinks and displays in
his solo performance, it's Messado's involvement of the spectators that
really shines - taking the linking rings from a detached exhibition of
stage magic to a totally engaging close-up experience.
Even David Copperfield is a fan of The Messado Rings - taking the time
to congratulate Joshua Messado for the stunning moments of bewilderment
created in the mind of the spectator, when the rings simply melt through
each other on the tip of the spectator's finger.
involvement of the spectator is not something that is simply tacked onto
the end of a linking rings performance. This routine makes the spectator
central to the magic - from sticking out a finger to unlink the rings
at their very touch, to physically holding a ring and crashing it through
another - linking them in their own hands - the magic happens just inches
away from their nose.
is a routine that builds, rather than flatlines, with the rings linking
and unlinking under increasingly impossible conditions. Messado’s
performance involves rings that jump to join others, links that happen
in midair- even links that seem to defy gravity.
Messado shares his full routines as he performs them on the DVD, teaching
each move in context, he also encourages you to choose those moves that
appeal to you and your own style - and being completely modular, you’re
able to develop your own routine.
When it comes to teaching, Messado holds nothing back. Even if you’ve
never touched a key ring in your life, Messado will have you performing
like a master in just a few hours. He teaches his full routine - from
start to finish, from the most basic single link through to his wrap-up
flourish display, in stunning and meticulous detail.

not often that we are totally blown away by a trick where the method
is so universally known - but in Messado's hands, the linking rings
stop being a 'trick' - they become something we never thought could
be said about rings... They become cool.
