Last week, Penn and Teller had magician Kyle Eschen on their show Fool Us. His magic was not overly stimulating and he did not fool Penn or Teller, but he was still captivating from the moment he took the stage:
His dry wit and awkward demeanor, which at times has a Norman Bates quality, turn a magic show into a comedy act that would have had Steven Wright clutching his side.

We can’t wait to see where Kyle’s career will take him after this success, but until then we say WOW.
