Penn Jillette on Father Time Podcast – Part 1
Penn Jillette is one of the most interesting guys I’ve ever interviewed on Father Time. He is a well known entertainer, magician, atheist, libertarian, skeptic, best selling author, and 1/2 of Penn & Teller, the longest running headliners to play in the same Vegas hotel at 16 years and running. Besides his star turn on Celebrity Apprentice, he and Teller created and starred in the hit shows, Penn and Teller: Bullshit!, and Penn and Teller: Fool Us. His latest best-selling book Presto, How I Made 100 lbs Disappear And Other Magical Tales will be out in paperback June 6th. But aside from one of the most prolific careers anyone has ever had, he is also a wonderful father to his two kids, Zolten and Moxie. We talked for almost two hours about so many different things that I had to break it up into 2 parts. You’ll get Penn’s view on Parenthood and how his parents brought him up. He’s an amazing guy and he was funny, open, and really smart. I would’ve talked for hours longer but he was off to an upcoming TV appearance that I can’t mention. He is truly the hardest working guy in show business.
Here’s part 1. Enjoy!
