Daily Dose of Magic – Penn & Teller and John Cleese

In 1994, Penn & Teller (www.pennandteller.com) had a BBC show, “The Unpleasant World of Penn & Teller.” In this trick, using cards and a water chamber, they perform what should be a typical card trick for John Cleese. They’ve performed this trick many time in their stage act, but adding the extra layer of John Cleese to it just sends me into a minor geekgasm. Having notable guests on stage may be a bit of stunt-casting, but when it’s the right person, well, it’s just right.
