Happy (Belated) Birthday To Teller

Posted by Michael on February 15th, 2019

Yesterday was Teller’s birthday… and I literally couldn’t read the Post-It note I left myself… I thought it said “19″ instead of “14!” So happy birthday, and I am sorry!

Here is one of iTricks’ favorite Penn and Teller bits; it is a real showcase of Teller’s skill.

Vent Tries To Confuse Penn and Teller With Carrot Top

Posted by Michael on October 1st, 2018

Ventriloquist and magician Christine Barger not only brought her partner Darlene Hollywood to Penn and Teller: Fool Us but also Carrot Top… unfortunately, she did not fall the boys. Still, it was a great appearance and we are happy she posted it on YouTube.

Tonight is the season finale of Penn and Teller: Fool Us, although it will air again Friday after the season finale of Masters Of Illusion, all on The CW.

Penn And Teller Backstage At The Tonight Show

Posted by Michael on July 6th, 2018

The Roots’ Questlove is one of the best audiences in television for magicians… because they seem to scare heck out of him! When Penn and Teller made an appearance on The Tonight Show earlier in the week he was the natural target volunteer for their backstage antics.

Speaking of the boys, Teller’s Twitter feed has reported he is doing well after surgery earlier this week. iTricks hopes you feel better soon!

And we hope all y’all iTrickster have a great (and safe) weekend!

Penn & Teller: Fool Us Re-Match Trailer

Posted by Michael on June 27th, 2018

Penn & Teller: Fool Us kicked off its new season earlier this week, but next Monday’s show might be the highlight of season five. It features previous winners of the coveted FU Trophy coming in to try for a repeat. There are (obviously) some familiar faces in the episode trailer, but I didn’t see Shawn Farquhar and don’t think I am alone in wanting to see him come and go for the three-peat!

If you missed the season five premiere, it is streaming for free over on The CW website. They are also running it again Friday night after the season premiere of The CW’s other magic show Masters Of Illusion.

Adam Wilber On P&T: Fool Us

Adam Wilber recently posted his appearance on Penn & Teller: Fool Us over on his Vimeo page. We figured after talking about the show in the Bulletin this morning, we might as well find a good clip, right?

Desert Bus Returns!

Posted by Michael on November 28th, 2017

A time lapse from this year’s Desert Bus For Hope charity event.

Desert Bus, Penn & Teller’s infamous mind numbingly boring real time mini-game, is now out for virtual reality. The game was originally part of the Sega game Penn and Teller’s Smoke and Mirrors and recreates a run of the mill bus drive from Tucson, AZ to Las Vegas. If you are interested, there is a full play through on YouTube… it is over eight hours long! The game is a bit of a cult classic at this point, though, and there are even charity events dedicated to playing the game as a kind of endurance event! Polygon has everything you need to know about the new VR version.
