Magician of the Week - Penn & Teller

Updated: Nov 7

It’s quite unusual to have double acts in magic, though it does seem more common when you look at some of the performers who stage big shows in Las Vegas.


This week we have Penn and Teller. Masters of magic and illusion. Comedy magicians who are hilarious and most talented. And of course, who can forget the best performance ever by Teller producing coins from water and then creating gold fish. Amazing.


I remember being amazed by Penn and Teller when I first saw them on TV and I do enjoy their TV show Fool Us. Just a shame it is a bit hard to follow in the UK. Other then the first two seasons on Netflix UK, the later series never seem to be shown.

They are great entertainers and very funny. True greats of magic. And if you live in the UK, they are currently advertising a tour in 2021.
