Penn Jillette On Camera Tricks & The Danger Of Magic

Penn and Teller, two magicians that stand out in the crowd and approach magic in their own unique way. I saw their act live (at the Penn and Teller theater located inside the Rio) in Las Vegas in the summer of 2007. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend their show to any fan of magic. They also debunk many ‘truths’ on their show ‘bullsh*t’ which aired for multiple seasons on showcase.

Last night, the magic duo were in Toronto at Massey Hall for a Q&A. Unfortunately I was unable to attend but in honour of them being here in Toronto, I thought I’d make this post.

Often after I finish performing, whether it’s at a wedding, a restaurant or any other private party- I myself am bombarded with questions regarding my thoughts on magic on television and my views on guys like Criss Angel and David Blaine. Below is a short clip of Penn explaining how I feel in much better words than I could articulate on the matter. Enjoy and don’t forget to check out their show at the Rio next time you’re in Vegas!
