An Interview with Magical Consultant Michael Close on Penn & Teller: Fool Us!

Postby Zig Zagger » September 7th, 2019, 6:25 pm

Michael very kindly and patiently answered a lot of questions from me on his duties as a magical consultant, the pre-show process, on working with some of the recent candidates, and the mechanics of fooling or not fooling Penn & Teller.

I hope you enjoy the interview as much as I did:

Gern geschehen, Ted M. :P Thank you for your kind words!

Basically, I just like to entertain and enlighten myself through my interviews and musings; but any friendly reader who digs into "my personal change bag of 1,000 things magical" is much appreciated. (270 posts so far, actually, and counting.)
