Bio

Penn Jillette is an American illusionist, juggler and comedian best known for his work with fellow illusionist Teller in the team known as Penn & Teller.

He is also known for his advocacy of atheism, scientific skepticism, libertarianism and free market capitalism.

Jillette 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 20 times on The Late Show with David Letterman, as well as on several other TV shows, from The Simpsons and Friends to Top Chef and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Jillette co-hosted the controversial series Penn & Teller: Bullshit!, which was nominated for 16 Emmy Awards. He was also co-host of the Discovery Channel's Penn & Teller Tell a Lie.

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 2011 the pair, together since 1975, was once again awarded Las Vegas Magicians of the Year.

Jillette's book God No! Signs You Might Be an Atheist and Other Magic Tales, spent six weeks on the New York Times Best Sellers list upon its release in summer 2011.

In 2012 he was a contestant on the reality competition television series The Celebrity Apprentice.
