Teller tell-all

Penn & Teller and me at TAM 3
Well, more like a tell-some: a great article on Teller (of Penn & Teller) is in a Las Vegas Weekly from November 2008. It’s really well done, and quite worth reading. It’s nice to see something that long written with some style and care for the story. I’ve seen the red ball trick described in the article, and it really is cool. Penn is right– for the audience, it just looks like a cute trick, but people in the know understand just how incredibly difficult it really is, and how well Teller performs it.
