Multiple Outs - P&T have a new bit in their show where they borrow a phone from an audience member who calls a friend or family member who couldn't be at the show, (preferably someone is a big Penn & Teller fan) via live video chat, and Penn proceeds to perform an impossible card trick for that one person over the phone. The live video call is projected onto IMAG (Image MAGnification) screens so the audience can enjoy the excitement of seeing a P&T fan enjoy getting their pants fooled off themselves, since the entire audience can plainly see exactly how the trick is done. In fact, some of the audience members are actually selected to participate in the working method of the trick, which I won't get into the details of, but I can see how it would be very fun & interesting for the audience to participate in or just to observe.

Bits I would like to know the name of:

Camera Man - (I'd really like to hear what they call this) - an audience member comes up to video record Penn as he plays with farm toys, while Teller is behind the backdrop making the magic happen (adding and taking away things which can not be seen by the volunteer filming and looking through the video camera's viewfinder). During the course of the trick, it ends with the volunteer removing the videocamera from his face and facing the audience and it is actually Teller holding the video camera.


Cowboy - I finally heard Penn reference this bit in his podcast and he said he thinks it's one of, if not the best, they've ever come up with. It is simply called 'Cowboy'.

To correct an earlier post where I labeled the bit known as 'Bleeding' incorrectly as '10-in-1', I just heard Penn reference that bit on one of his more recent podcasts and he said '10-in-1' is the bit where he does a monologue about how to eat fire, and then proceeds to perform the fire-eating demonstration.

Just heard Penn mention on his podcast that they recently wrote a new bit called “Dr. Teller’s New Hands”. He didn’t give any further information about the bit.

On Episode 679 of Penn’s Sunday School podcast, Penn said the name of the bit where they do demonstrations of freezing things with Liquid Nitrogen and then breaking them on the table or floor is called just ‘Liquid Nitrogen’. During the bit, Penn is careful to wear his gloves to protect his hands, while he keeps reminding Teller to be sure and use the gloves, which Teller constantly ignores.

They most likely renamed it because the original name, listed in my previous post, basically gives away the surprise ending of the routine.

There is another bit from Season 8 where Penn & Teller do a 2-person (4-handed) Sponge Ball routine that they call “Magic for Each Other”. It may be called “Magic 4 Each Other”, as Penn was quick to point out this is what he refers to as a 4-handed magic routine.

The episode of Penn & Teller Fool Us referenced above is actually still Season 7, not 8. The episode number and titles is Season 7, Episode 18, "Teller Gets Smashed", but that show title is just in reference to the ending bit, not the actual name of the bit. The bit name is simply 'Liquid Nitrogen'.

The bit at the end of Fool Us, Season 7, Episode 22, which aired March 5, 2021, is called simply "Spring Flowers". Penn referenced the name of the bit in Episode 689 of his podcast.

This bit involves Teller cutting and tearing up different colors of tissue paper and producing colorful leaves & flowers to decorate a plain, bare tree cutout. At the end, all of the newly placed foliage falls of the tree leaving only an apple on the tree which Teller shares with Penn, but after handing the apple to Penn, they both somehow end up with a whole apple in their hands and each take a bite to show they are real apples.
