Penn Jillette is the latest comedian to score a second appearance on Ron Bennington’s prestigious Unmasked Show. Second appearances are rare, and Penn joins an impressive and elite group of those to do the show twice. Best known as one half of the Penn and Teller magic act, Penn is not only a consummate magician, but also a bestselling author, an outspoken atheist, and libertarian, and one of the sharpest comedic minds working today.
Jillette will sit down for an hour conversation with Bennington in front of a studio audience on Wednesday August 3rd at 12:30pm at the SiriusXM studios. They’ll be talking about Penn’s new book, Presto! How I Made Over 100 Pounds Disappear and other Magical Tales as well as all things comedy, magic, the universe, current issues and more.
It was in 2012 that Ron first sat down with Jillette for an Unmasked episode to talk about his book Every Day is an Atheist Holiday. They talked about a wide range of topics from the Amazing Randi to God, morality, and of course, magic. It’s considered one of the great episodes, so you won’t want to miss Ron and Penn sitting down for a second hour.
Bennington’s Unmasked has been called one of the most important comedy interview series happening today. Past Unmasked guests have included comedy legends like Joan Rivers, Tracy Morgan, David Steinberg, Roseanne, Bob Newhart, Patrice O’Neal, Louis CK, Richard Lewis, Amy Schumer, and most recently, Bill Hader, Dane Cook and Russell Brand.
