Penn & Teller

Penn & Teller are doing my "Your other half" love ritual trick I published in "A Book in English" in which the whole audience, with 4 cards, they do magic by their own. I was his guest in Las Vegas very recently and watching them do the trick was a blast! As a fan of his work I just can say... What an honor!

There is a lot to tell about this and more exciting things that happen in my last USA trip. I will try to write something... but I need to find some free time. See you then!

  1. Hi Woody,
    I am a mathematician (and amateur magician), super fan of Penn and Teller.

    I saw your trick being performed live on Vegas and got obsessed with it. I even wrote an article (with Jang-Woo Park) on a generalization of the trick, so audience could start with any number of cards (instead of 4).

    The article was published in the September 2017 issue of the Journal or Magic Research. The day after its publication, Michael Close, the editor of M-U-M, wrote me to let me know we neglected to tell that you were the creator of the trick.

    I want to apologize, but I did not know. I even tried to contact Penn and Teller's production to get more info, but all attempts were unsuccessful.

    I wanted to congratulate you on the amazing trick, and to apologize for not mentioning you on the article. I will mention you and your book from now on during my "mathemagics" performances.
