The Las Vegas shows may have temporarily shut down in recent months, but that hasn’t stopped the magic for Penn Jillette. The famed magician joined his longtime partner Teller for a CW at-home special in May. Fans of the duo bummed they can’t see them do their thing at The Rio will be happy to know the seventh season of Penn & Teller: Fool Us is also around the corner.
The competition series hosted by Alyson Hannigan sees them attempt to uncover the secrets behind the tricks from emerging magicians. Those lucky enough to stump Penn & Teller earn a snazzy “FU” trophy and a gig, taking the stage as part of their headlining residency in Sin City.
We caught up with a hunkered-down-at-home Jillette to talk about the show’s success, and why one upcoming episode terrified him. ( Pictured (L-R): Alyson Hannigan, Dee Snider, Teller and Penn Jillette — Photo: Scott Everett White/The CW)
