Penn & Teller: Fool Us WINNER – FOOLER

Winner on Penn & Teller: Fool Us Fooler

Wow. What a rush. I’m absolutely buzzing. I’m now a winner of Penn & Teller: Fool Us with my official ‘Fooler’ trophy!

Penn & Teller: Fool Us started in the UK back in 2011. I was on the show then and unfortunately my trick was deemed to have been a ‘non fooler’.

There’s actually a much longer story to this if you ever meet me, ask me about it. Basically, I was asked to show Penn & Teller my trick for a rehearsal, it fooled them but as it wasn’t on the TV it didn’t count. I then went on to the their TV show but wasn’t allowed to show them the same trick so came up with another that didn’t fool them (although, there was some debate about that too). Long story.

However, I was recently invited back on the TV show, this time to perform at their theatre at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas and have another go at fooling 2 of the best magicians in the world (Penn & Teller).

This is the same trick that I performed a few years ago on Britain’s Got Talent with Amanda Holden. It’s a magic trick that I’m very proud of as 1) I invented it and I’m the only magician in the world performing it and 2) I think it’s a really fun, original magic trick that is also fooling.

Sometimes on the show, magicians fool them with tricks that are actually a bit boring, but they are fooling. Some of the best magicians in the world have had great, entertaining tricks on Fool Us, but were not classed as a Fooler. It’s not always the most entertaining tricks that actually fool them. So I was super excited that a trick that I’d come up with was both a Fooler AND funny.

This time, I performed a signed card trick with the host, Alyson Hannigan. Watch the result below.
