Show to broadcast at 8 p.m. on Monday, July 27 on the CW
LAS VEGAS, NV – July 21, 2015 – Harrah’s Las Vegas Headliner Comedy-Magician Mac King will try to “fool” fellow magicians Penn & Teller on the CW’s Penn & Teller Fool Us. Magicians are invited to perform their best trick to try and fool the world-famous team of Penn & Teller, who will get to see the trick only once and have to immediately try to work it out. The live studio audience and the TV audience watch along with Penn & Teller as they try to figure out the secrets. King’s episode will broadcast on Monday, July 27 from 8 p.m. – 9 p.m. Now in its second season, the show has connected with summer audiences with high ratings and is hosted by British television and radio personality Jonathan Ross.
“This was such an amazing opportunity to work with Penn & Teller since we have known each other for so long,” said King. “We have seen each other’s shows in Las Vegas a number of times so choosing a trick that they hadn’t seen before proved to be a challenge. The one that I ended up going with was one that I knew they would get a kick out of trying to figure out.”
