  • WHY PENN & TELLER NEED EACH OTHER

    Penn & Teller were featured in a very nice segment on CBS Sunday Morning on January 25, 2015. 

    Among the many topics covered:

    Teller on why his character is silent:

    "Not speaking is just about the most intimate thing that you can do," Teller said.

    "Intimate in terms of ..." said Cowan.

    "See? You felt like you had to speak. If we just stop, and look at each other, Oh gosh, that gets intimate fast, and that's what I feel when I'm on stage."

    Penn on their relationship:

    "Teller and I never got along," Penn said. "We never had a cuddly friendship. It was a very cold, calculated relationship where we thought we do better stuff together than we do separately."

    "So it was almost a matter of necessity?" Cowan asked.

    "Well, it turns out that respect lasts longer than affection."

  • RICKY JAY'S MAGICAL NEW YORK

    Promoting the premier of the documentary "Deceptive Practice" on the PBS series "American Masters," the NY Post posted this article on Ricky Jay's Magical New York: READ THE ORIGINAL HERE

    Was I ever tempted to be a con man or a card shark? Yes,” says Ricky Jay, who overcame temptation to become one of the greatest sleight-of-hand artists of all time.

    Born Richard Jay Potash in 1948, the Brooklyn native’s parlayed his way with cards into a career as an actor, writer, historian and collector.

    “My peregrinations are hard to establish,” says Jay, who, throughout his travels, has held onto his place on the Upper West Side. He’s also the first magician to materialize on PBS’ American Masters series: “Ricky Jay: Deceptive Practice” airs Friday. This is his magical New York.
