Penn, from Penn and Teller was on the radio this morning and made a pretty interesting comment. When asked if he feared negative feedback from the magic community he responded by saying that the magic community is basically a bunch of no talent weirdos who fight and bicker like little girls. Thus, he really isn't concerned with what the "magic community" thinks.

What do you think about his comment?

If he believes that, then he hears only what he wishes to hear and was being a big mouth posturing for the radio guy...

If he is just being in character, well...there ya go....that's his character...rant on big guy!

I don't think the 'community' is much concerned either way with what he says...He has his millions, his attitude and his in your face arrogant manners...so what...has nothing to do with me or anyone I know any more than OJ Simpson does. And do I give a crap what he says? Nah.


I would like to have heard the context of the dialog though just for laffs...he has a point, to a point, but that's a real hefty blanket statement to cover such a small percentage of the magic communmity, says I.
Penn knows that's just more B.S.

Penn is wrong: the fighting and bickering is NOT like little girls. It's mostly guys, I think! Smile

That's been the "official" line from P&T since forever.

In real life Teller, at least, is a student of magic history (see his article on David P Abbott in "Genii" a month or so ago). I wouldn't be surprised if Penn is too.

I think it's funny as ****. He has no fear. That is the number one sign of a strong performer. Fearless.
Some are born idiots.

Some are made idiots.

Some have idiocy thrust upon them.

It shouldn't bother anybody. It's part of his 'schtick', no more and no less.

I think the "magic community" is like a big high school that has been inexplicably taken over by the chess club and the drama club.

Well that is his view. Do we see him on hear helping others out. Now I don't know about you...but when you help someone out is that bickering. And I am not a girl. Last time I checked. Smile

Ah I think he is being himself. I saw his show when they came into town and their show has some rude jokes so that some people got offended, (I didn't, I was laughing my butt off), but there was a guy in the audience that yelled out "There are kids here" and Penn replyed you knew the ******* rating of this show before you came too ******* bad.

Everyone was lauging because he did it in a funny way. But when you go to their show don't expect it to be a family show. There will be some things they do that are on the risque part.

I wonder what Teller would have to say about this?
We are all about as successful as we choose to be.

Wow, I haven't seen Teller that excited since he fired a pistol at Penn during the bullet catch!

Well done to Penn, I say. Im having that same problem with my local magic community and I feel like getting on the radio and saying the same thing.

It's his character, but he does have a point, just listen to us.

I think there is definitely some truth in his comment.

They are the "BAD BOYS OF MAGIC" don't let it bother you. I have met both of them and when they are performing they can be nasty, but they are nice guys.

BINGO.

P&T don't get negative feedback from the magic community. They are suppose to be the BAD BOYS of magic but they aren’t. Most everyone loves them but it’s hard to be the outlaw when you're everyone’s idol.

And as for “the magic community is basically a bunch of no talent weirdos who fight and bicker like little girls." Your point would be?
