PENN JILLETTE (Producer) is a cultural phenomenon as a solo personality and as half of the world-
famous Emmy Award- winning magic duo and Las Vegas headliners Penn & Teller.
His solo exposure is enormous: from Howard Stern to Piers Morgan, from Oprah to Glenn
Beck, to the Op-Ed pages of The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and the Los Angeles
Times. He has appeared on Dancing with the Stars, MTV Cribs, and Chelsea Lately, and hosted
the NBC game show Identity. As part of Penn & Teller, he has appeared more than twenty times
on David Letterman, as well as on several other TV shows, from The Simpsons,
and Friends to Top Chef and Jimmy Fallon.
He cohosted the controversial Showtime series Penn & Teller: Bullshit!, which was nominated
for sixteen Emmy Awards and was the longest-running show in the history of the network. He
most recently cohosted the Discovery Channel's Penn & Teller Tell A Lie and was part of the
most recent cast of NBC's Celebrity Apprentice.
Together since 1975, Penn & Teller's live show spent years on Broadway and is now the
longest-running headliner show in Las Vegas where it plays nightly at The Rio All-Suite Hotel &
Casino. In 2013 the pair was once again awarded Las Vegas Magicians of the Year.
Penn's latest book is God No! Signs You Might Be An Atheist and Other Magic Tales, which
spent six weeks on the New York Times Best Sellers list upon its release.
His new podcast, Penn's Sunday School, was the No. 1 downloaded podcast on iTunes during its
debut week and was named by iTunes as Best New Comedy Podcast for 2012.
As a philanthropist, his efforts have resulted in raising thousands of dollars for Las Vegas-based
charities AFAN (AID for AIDS NV) and Opportunity Village. The annual "Penn & Teller's Bloody Days of Xmas" continues to be the most successful blood drive in the Vegas Valley
resulting in an average of 4000 pints donated every holiday season.
