Ben Earl: Trick Artist - Penn & Teller - Netflix
Penn & Teller (Penn Jillette and Teller) are American magicians and entertainers who have performed together since the late 1970s, noted for their ongoing act which combines elements of comedy with magic. The duo has been featured in numerous stage and television shows such as Penn & Teller: Fool Us, and currently perform in Las Vegas at The Rio, the longest running headlining act in Las Vegas history. Penn Jillette serves as the act's orator and raconteur. Teller generally does not speak while performing, and instead communicates through mime and nonverbals, though his voice can occasionally be heard during their live shows and television appearances. Besides magic, the pair has become associated with the advocacy of atheism, scientific skepticism, and libertarianism, particularly through their television show Penn & Teller: Bullshit!.

The managing editor of Science-Based Medicine, David Gorski, has criticized Penn & Teller for their implied endorsement of non-scientific advice and pseudoscience (“two skeptical icons lending their names to a daytime swamp of nonsense”) via their appearance on The Dr. Oz Show.
