Penn & Teller: Fool Us is a show that is fondly remembered for the incredible magic schemes and magicians that it showcased throughout its run. It helped to take magic into the mainstream, and it introduced people to a plethora of exciting tricks.
The show’s highest moments were when the hosts would admit that they could not figure out how a trick was made, granting the title of fooler to whoever managed this feat.
In this article, we will look at some of the magicians from Penn & Teller that managed to pull some of the most mind-blowing tricks.
Wayne Hoffman is a renowned magician and mentalist that relies on social engineering and mind games to create an entertaining experience for the audience.
He gained international attention back in 2016 after he successfully managed to fool Penn & Teller with a trick that involved taking a volunteer’s personal information and then printing it onto a plastic card.
Both hosts tried to decipher his trick, but they were not able to figure it out. Besides the intricacy of Wayne’s magic trick, both Penn & Teller appreciated the showmanship and presentation.
Kostya Kimlat is known in the industry as a business magician. He is a performer that combines magic and business education to empower audiences to “think like a magician” and be more effective whenever doing business.
Kostya believes that perception is important both in magic and in business. He parallels how being perceptive and cunning will affect us in our business endeavors through his shows.
To illustrate his points, he uses simple and effective magic tricks that the audience can easily understand – while also being amazed.
While he strives for simplicity, his skills are deceptively complex. Back in 2015, he participated in Penn & Teller: Fool Us by performing a mesmerizing card shuffling trick. It was one of the few card magicians from Penn & Teller that managed to fool them.
Eric Jones is a highly celebrated close-up magician. He is mainly known for the myriad of television appearances where he showcased his impressive set of skills.
Eric’s style of magic is mostly centered around traditional card-shuffle and sleight of hand techniques, as he likes to do simple but effective tricks that involve tokens, cards, or other trinkets.
He used one of his signature coin tricks to fool Penn & Teller during the second season.
He might be a traditional magician at heart. However, he does not shy away from adding a modern twist to his show – as Eric also uses technology to realize some of the larger-than-life tricks.
Steven Brundage wowed the world with his incredible ability to solve the Rubik’s cube in lightning-fast times. He rose to become a viral sensation back in 2014 after posting his “Speeding Ticket with Magic” video on YouTube.
The video’s premise was that Steven would get his way out of a speeding ticket by solving a Rubik’s cube for the officers in less than 20 seconds with the added difficulty of doing it behind his back.
On Penn & Teller, he showcased some of his greatest Rubik’s cube tricks, which he solved in less than a few seconds or even without looking at the cube. The hosts admitted they were fooled, but they enjoyed every second of it.
