I was delighted to receive the following note this morning from the producers of Penn & Teller 'Fool Us'.
After the huge success of ITV1’s primetime 90-minute special, Penn & Teller: Fool Us!, the world-famous illusionists are coming back to the UK for more.
For the series - hosted by Jonathan Ross - we’re looking for the best magical performers to wow the pair with a jaw-dropping performance. It is all about showcasing the most original, entertaining and baffling magic – all watched live by Penn & Teller and a studio audience. Any magician who manages to fool the pair gets a trip to Las Vegas to perform in their incredible stage show at the Rio Hotel and Casino.
This is an open call to find the very best, either amateur or professional, and we are looking at every kind of magic so that we have as much variety as possible. We will be filming in a studio in London between May 14-May 20. We would need you to be available at times tbc within that window. You will also need to make yourself available for 1-2 days filming in the run up to the studio.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org asap for an application form! You can now find us on Facebook: ‘Fool Us’
