Did You Know?


Penn & Teller have made their own video games; the first being the unreleased "Penn & Teller's Smoke & Mirrors" where players are meant to prank others into playing incredibly difficult or pointless mini-games in order to combat the assumption that all video games are violent in nature. The most recent has been "Penn & Teller VR: Frankly Unfair, Unkind, Unnecessary, & Underhanded" for virtual reality consoles. They've even appeared in Steven Spielberg's Director's Chair (1996), playing bit characters in a short film directed by the man himself. See more »
