Black Mirror Season 4 Will Feature a Dark Story By Famed Magician Penn Jillette

Black Mirror is such an incredible show that tells these wonderfully dark and fascinating stories. There are currently three seasons on Netflix and if you haven't been watching them, you really need to.

Black Mirror Season 4 will feature an episode that will tell a story written by famed magician Penn Jillette. Now, I'm a huge fan of Jillette! He's a multi-talented guy who knows how to entertain and move an audience.

In the latest episode of Penn's Sunday School podcast, he talked about meeting with Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker. He shared a story with Brooker about being sick in a Spanish welfare hospital back in 1981. There was a language barrier that prevented a diagnosis and how no one knew where he was. This served as the inspiration for the story and it was so dark, it was never published. Penn talks about it saying:

Penn Jillette's Obama Marijuana Blast (Video)

"Celebrity Apprentice" star and performer Penn Jillette isn't thrilled with President Obama's stance on marijuana laws. During "Penn's Sunday School," Jillette, a tea totaler, lambasted the Obama drug policies that seek to criminalize the buying and selling of medical marijuana."Now, he has not left this to states' rights," Jillette said. "As you know, medical marijuana you can get in California, and the feds are coming in to try to stop this.

Jillette: If Obama Were Arrested Under His Laws, He'd Be In Prison

In a recent episode of his podcast "Penn's Sunday School," comedian Penn Jillette laid his opinions on the Obama drug policies out on the table.

Another point of contention for Jillette was the fact that President Obama mentioned that he had smoked "weed" and done "maybe a little blow" in his 1995 book "Dreams from my Father."

Jillette cited it as a prime example of the fact that not all drug
