Guess what. Yes. Exactly. You’re exactly right. It’s what we thought all along. I’ll be on TV for this season of Penn & Teller: Fool Us. I can hardly believe it.
Again, I can’t say whether I fooled them or not, but goodness, if this wasn’t an amazing experience. Working with the incredible behind the scenes crew of magicians and legends, getting to meet Johnny Thompson just a few weeks before he passed, was the privilege of a lifetime. I met some ridiculous performers and saw an incredible, incredible couple of illusions that I’m still confused about. And the energy of the audience was electric.
Update – Watch here!
Watch before reading this:
Yeah! Awesome right! I mean, I got exactly what I wanted. I brought a smile and a laugh to Teller, and called Penn out for talking too much. Plus, the illusion worked perfectly, and they loved it! I mean what a quote!
After the show was over, I saw P&T in the wings of their theater, and they waved at me to come over. We chatted for a couple of minutes, and they were so complimentary and positive. Getting their stamp of approval was literally all I could ever ask for.
Can’t wait to go back. And next time, I’m going to fool them.
