Penn and Teller have been doing magic since 1975. (That's 26 years if you're not good at math). They've said, "We have been doing magic together for 26 years and we hate it so much, we could spit at it."
They have made appearances on many TV shows. Some of them are: The Late Show With David Letterman, Saturday Night Live, The Drew Carey Show, and The Simpsons.
Penn and Teller have also written a few books. I have read all of them. My favorite one was How to Play in Traffic. It is about tricks you can play on your family on long car trips.
They have made movies including Penn and Teller Get Killed, Don't Try This at Home, and Teller's Invisible Thread.
Penn and Teller do many tricks. I think their most famous trick is the one where Penn catches a speeding bullet in his mouth. I want to tell you how it works, but I don't know.
My favorite tricks are the ones where Penn or Teller looks like they will get hurt like in the pizza commercial, but then they climb out of a box or pull off a bulletproof vest. People like those tricks because there is a risk involved. Would you want to see a person jump off a 2-foot high platform? That sounds pretty boring. People want action. That's why Mission Impossible made a lot of money the first week it came out. Remember, make your tricks exciting, but keep them safe.
