Quotes

Penn: Our more famous colleagues: Doug Henning, David Copperfield, and Harry Blackstone Jr., to name but a few, have built up a reputation, and you know and trust that their shows are accomplished by their craft: magic, sleight of hand, knowledge of visual perceptions and illusion.

Witty and subversive fun
11 July 1999 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

Extremely funny, witty and clever performance by Penn and Teller. The writing is as sharp as the dangerous-looking knives and implements that are their trademark. One of the funniest pieces in the program is when Penn and Teller run amok in a grocery store in order to swipe enough food to feed their camera crew. Penn's heartfelt justification for this outrage is that viewers who support PBS don't want their money going to buy lunch for employees instead of "Masterpiece Theatre". There is a constant subversive mocking of PBS throughout the program which is hilarious and refreshing.
