Fool Us: No Tricks, I Just Do It
If you're curious about what was going through my mind and what went on right before filming, my wife, Amy, and I discussed what we were feeling, just four hours before showtime in Las Vegas.
Here are some of my favorite still shots from the performance:
Penn gave the analogy that magic is distinct from juggling. In juggling, you do the thing you're saying you're going to do. Whereas in magic, you say you do something, but you don't actually do it. Magicians only create the perception of something. In this case, I worked on creating the reality of it. Penn's juggling background made him realize that what I was doing was no trick or gimmick.
Check out the look on Teller's face when Penn tells him this:
I absolutely adore and respect these guys. They are two of the world's best magicians. But beyond that they are artistic, clever and so inspiring.
I'm so grateful to Penn & Teller for this opportunity to highlight the art of magic. While you can, go see their show at the Rio in Las Vegas!
