That being said, coming from a magician, I put it in the same category of truthfulness as "Nothing up my sleeve..."
...P.S. during the trick there was a part where I was supposed to stand to the side and watch to make sure no funny-business was going on but I was too tipsy to hear the off-stage guy directing me to my mark on the stage so I stood in the wrong spot and saw how it was all done.
I did this the first time around they did tapings and it was a tone of fun. I'd definitely recommend it as it's a great show and you get to see the full story (some questions/etc may be left out...). It was really fun to watch Penn and Teller pick the act apart and decipher how it was done and then relate that back to the performer in sort of a "coded" language to let them know "yeah, we get how you did it."Quote: Wizard
I got an Email through Caesars that they are giving away free tickets to a taping of Penn & Teller's Fool Us show. The premise is aspiring magicians perform before them, and a studio audience, in an effort to fool Penn & Teller. Whether or not they do, P&T give them suggestions and their overall impression of the act. Unfortunately, if P&T where not fooled, they don't explain the secret to the audience.
I'm planning to go but haven't picked a day yet.

Typical show taping issues. They had to re-do an intro like 5 times one time, then they do the same take a couple ways so later they can pick which one looks better, etc, etc. So a regular 2 hour show becomes a 4 hour production show...Quote: GWAE
I noticed it says that you should expect to be there 4 hours. I wonder what the delays are.
