Penn and Teller take on the Martians
8 July 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This film was my first view of Penn and Teller on TV. You get to see how they mix comedy, magic, and entertainment into there routine. They are true performance artists who take on popular culture, magic stereotypes, and traditional views.

In this short film Penn and Teller are selling there magic tricks. Penn and Teller tell the story of there invisible thread and espouse there magic-philosophy routines. Instead of wooing the audience with there tricks they do there magic and they also talk about magicians like Houdini, musicians like Elvis.

This film is a must for Penn and Teller fans and for light entertainment only. I will give it a 6 / 10.
