Major technical contributions
Roth's trick "The Hanging Coins" (which was first revealed in Apocalypse magazine, Volume 1, No. 6, page 68, 1978) took an ancient, and long ignored, sleight-of-hand technique and made it far more deceptive and useful. This technique, which Roth dubbed "Edge Grip," has subsequently been explored in depth by other experts in the field. It is a significant tool of contemporary coin magic.
Roth's virtuoso execution of a "persistence of vision vanish" led to tremendous interest in his handling of the move (which he refers to "The Retention Vanish"), and – perhaps – to increased use of this move among magicians.
Roth's handling and application of a technique that has – largely thanks to him – become known as "The Shuttle Pass" is highly influential.
Roth's "The Original Chinese Coin Assembly" was highly influential as the first published coin assembly that used the bare hands. This was a highly influential development that has been widely used and explored by other sleight-of-hand experts.
Roth's literary works
In 2003, Roth co-wrote and co-starred along with Darwin Ortiz in All of the People, All of the Time. It also co-starred actress Ruth Williamson and was co-written by Patrick Cook. It opened in Charlotte, North Carolina, and later played in Waterford, Connecticut.
Roth has consulted for Ricky Jay's production of On The Stem as well as Ricky Jay and His 52 Assistants in which he was credited in the program as Ricky's '53rd Assistant'.
