This is self explanatory; Penn Jillette is promoting the AFAN (Aid For AIDS Nevada) charity walk scheduled for this Sunday. Penn and Teller will be Grand Marshals for the 16th time. Get more information on the AFAN website.

Happy Birthday Penn Jillette

Posted by Michael on March 5th, 2017

iTricks would like to wish a very happy birthday to Penn Jillette. If you are looking for a way to celebrate, you can always check out this almost hour long free video from the Chicago Humanities Festival featuring Penn’s discussion on his recent weight loss as well as his political views and more. You can also catch Penn on a repeat episode of Fool Us tomorrow night on the CW after Supergirl.

Penn’s Garage Sale

Posted by Michael on August 30th, 2016

You may remember that Penn Jillette and his family moved out of The Slammer a few months ago because, basically, his awesome bachelor pad wasn’t a very good home for a family. Soon The Slammer will be demolished so Penn held a garage sale over the weekend (because that is so much easier than moving it). The video report above is from Bravo Casino Media and you can read more about the sale in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

AGT Stuff, Penn Jillette Stuff And More [Magic Bulletin]

Posted by Michael on August 5th, 2016

No, it isn’t Fox Business… it’s iTricks! Obviously, that’s Penn. More on him later in the Bulletin.

Okay, how about a round up of some America’s Got Talent stuff? Ryan Stock and AmberLynn did not continue on in the competition, but their last performance is still inspiring looks at other accidents on the show, such as this one from the AP on the Calgary Sun website while the Orlando Sentinel is taking a look at juggler Victor Kee and New York Upstate features Steven Brundage.

The Goodman Theatre (in Chicago) is hosting the world premiere of The Magic Play, which is a play featuring a good deal of magic, on November 1. Playbill and Broadway World both have pieces on the show.

Justin Willman is starting to get a good deal of attention for his pro-transgender bathroom law magic video, which we honestly skipped on posting earlier in the week… not due to political reasons but because it is pretty NSFW! If you want to check it out, visit Justin’s YouTube page.

Finally, Penn Jillette also visited the Kilmeade and Friends radio show to talk about weight loss and Donald Trump. You can watch the interview (it is about 13 minutes) on the Fox Radio News site.

Mahdi Gilbert Fooled’Em

Posted by Michael on July 29th, 2016

Sorry it is a bit of a slim Video Friday… but I’m not in iTrick Tower Midwest V1.0 or 2.0. I’m not a Grand Cherokee somewhere in the 240 miles between the two! We do have a great video for you, though, Mahdi Gilbert’s winning oil and water routine from this week’s episode of Penn & Teller: Fool Us.

Check out more of Mahdi on his official website. Don’t forget to check out his picture intensive blog, too!

Ryan Joyce Behind The Scenes At Fool Us

Posted by Michael on July 22nd, 2016

Between the moving and the lack of DVR at any iTricks Tower Midwest location, permanent or temporary, we missed this week’s episode of Penn & Teller: Fool Us. When we streamed it later, we were blown away to see friend of iTricks Ryan Joyce doing a stage illusion! Ryan told us that he had been under a gag order and couldn’t tip off that he was on this week! However, now that the cat is out of the bag, though, he is allowed to not only talk about the experience but can even post his behind the scene look at the appearance. Be sure to check out his YouTube page for more behind the scenes video from the show and Ryan’s nutty life.

If you missed the episode, like I did, you can stream it for free from The CW, like I did.
