First up, we have a premiere date for new Penn & Teller: Fool Us episodes (courtesy of The Wrap via Yahoo Entertainment): Sunday, January 8, 2021.

Speaking of Fool Us, The Lockport Journal has a feature on Garrett Thomas, the Buffalo, NY area magician who fooled Penn and Teller and can still be seen at local restaurant Danny Sheehans.

Speaking of Garrett Thomas, that is him above explaining why he went on Penn & Teller: Fool Us although he teaches magic is not a game or puzzle.

Good news for French magician Le Cirque de JP, who lives and performs in Auckland, New Zealand: almost all of the props stolen from his van suddenly reappeared outside of his home. Read more on the Circus Talk site.

Finally, since many see Halloween as National Magic Day the South Florida Reporter ran a piece on magic, its divisions and some trivia, such as the origin of “hocus pocus.”
