- And, the quieter half of the famed magician duo Penn & Teller has a lot to say about their adventurous career – he is just shy about being seen while he’s doing it. Teller shares some stories with Mark in a rare radio interview, as Penn & Teller prepare to present an evening at the Fox Tucson Theatre on March 1st.
Penn & Teller will be performing at the Fox Tucson Theatre on Wednesday, March 1st, 2023.
Teller once told Mark McLemore that his first magic tricks came from a set that he ordered for 50 cents from the Howdy Doody Show. Right after the interview, Teller shared this photo of him holding a piece of original art featuring Clarabelle the Clown that was from the same set. The artwork was a gift from a friend for Teller's recent 75th birthday. (He did not even mention the original Howdy Doody marionette hanging on the wall behind him.)
