After each performance, if Penn & Teller cannot figure out how a trick was done, the magician who performed it win a Fool Us trophy and a five-star trip to Las Vegas to perform as the opening act in Penn & Teller’s show, also at the Rio Hotel & Casino.
What is the format of the show? Is it coming back with its another season? If it is, then when is it releasing? Is it worth watching? Well, you gotta keep on reading more to find out! So, let us start! Here are the answers to your questions!
Format of the Show
Each episode of the show starts off with the introduction stating the purpose of the series. Penn & Teller come out and take their seats towards center stage, and hopeful magicians perform their acts in front of them with a live studio audience.
After each performance, Penn & Teller privately confer and may examine any of the trick’s props, while the host interviews the magicians. Penn & Teller then reveal if they know how the trick was performed, typically using cryptic language or writing down the method and presenting it privately to the magicians to confirm, so as to avoid publicly exposing the secrets behind the trick.
Teller notes that the doublespeak helps teach people new techniques without spoiling the trick. If Penn & Teller are wrong, or cannot come up with how the trick was done, the magician wins a Fool Us trophy and the opportunity to later perform at one of Penn & Teller’s Las Vegas shows.
A backstage judge, who is versed in the techniques of the magic industry and privately informed how the trick is done prior to the show, makes any necessary calls whether Penn & Teller were properly fooled. At the end of each episode, Penn & Teller perform a magic act of their own.
