Published by Darron Toy on

[Applause] are gonna try to bust each magician they see if they can't that magician wins an all-expenses-paid trip to Vegas to perform in their show and international bragging rights let's see who's up first my name is Damien James and I control equipment special effects and magic I've always kind of been a shy person so a puppet was a way of kind of coming out of my shell because they could get away with anything who's planning teller I got into special-effects makeup to change the way I look by adding prosthetics and playing different characters so I just kind of disappeared acting is kind of the wizard behind the curtain maybe the same techniques that are done by Hollywood it actually ended up being another career for me where's my check tonight I'll be performing as myself not in prosthetics or as a character it would actually be really cool to fool Penn & Teller as a ventriloquist because I know that Penn Jillette absolutely hates puppets and ventriloquist's well the feeling is mutual it's time to into the bizarre world of Damian James thank you very much let me ask you a question time travel what would you do if you were able to alter the very fabric of time and space itself I'll tell you what I would do I'd do a magic trick and tonight we're actually going to travel into the future six whole months to do a very special magic trick with the help of my time machine now this may not look like an advanced science time machine but this is the shabby-chic retro model I paid extra for it to look like this I can assure you it's relatively safe all I have to do is adjust the flux capacitor to six months from now and here we go Wow what a trip six months in the future I can't believe it but you know a lot has changed in the past six months for instance we no longer use language to communicate we only use emojis in fact I actually have some educational flashcards that basically they're from the communications program of the president Donald J Trump school although that doesn't really narrow it down in six months that's what all the schools are called but I need the assistance of somebody I can I get Allison to join me for a moment alyson hannigan so I have here all these different emojis so what they're there in no particular order there's no distinguishable marks on the back what I'd like you to do is just touch the back of one of the emojis that one right there okay I'm going to show you this one now please remember that emoji I'm gonna show everybody on everybody remember what that is otherwise the end of the trick is really gonna suck all right thank you very much Allison thank you now I sense a little bit of skepticism in the audience perhaps some people don't actually believe we've traveled six months into the future and I get that but I can prove it who better to help me try to fool present-day Penn & Teller than from six months in the future the newly named teller and Penn [Applause] [Applause] Wow teller pen what an honor it is to be on stage with you who are you well I'm Demian James Who am I oh you're your Penn Jillette although you don't really sound like Penn well you're a lousy impersonator well maybe your voice is actually changed I mean we just traveled it in the future six months really yeah so was that younger and Lee sitting down there that's right that's you from six whole months ago Wow I looked so hungry Penn do you remember anything from the past six months not a lot last thing I remember we had a ventriloquist on foolís killed the ratings show got cancelled god I hate puppets all right well I guess we should say hi to tell her hi tell her life of the party as usual I see you nailed down his voice okay well yeah all right well anyway yeah we actually are gonna do a magic trick I had Allison choose an emoji well I'll take it from here earlier today when teller was taking is now I surgically implanted a stick of dynamite into his chest well what's the trick I have to guess Allison's emoji before the dynamite goes off before oh well if you don't well teller goes interstellar okay either way it's good TV okay it sounds a little graphic I think the censors might have a little bit of an issue with that if anything does go wrong yeah just call it off a hankie or something well I got one in my back pocket you got one here okay all right that's my diaper okay just cover him up okay oh my god I'm floating okay now teller is covered so what do we do now I gotta try and find the emoji okay all right but first the detonator okay that's back here okay all right on goes the timer and now to find the emoji all right check this out okay look on the back on my head it's a new reveal or working on a new reveal okay I'm looking at your head what do you see [Laughter] liver spots not just any thoughts they're in the shape of Alison's emoji the three of clubs okay do you see it I do see something it's kind of like actually like a raised growth I think you should probably get that looked at ten but I gotta say that the three of clubs is not an emoji it's not No well I can't turn off the detonator Oh what do you mean well just to try the off button isn't working do you know how to turn it off yeah well can you turn it off no look why not I didn't find the emoji oh I know but the timer's gonna go off pretty soon Wow sorry teller I'm gonna miss you buddy okay all right well it's just what a senseless tragedy that cloth cost 20 bucks what was your emoji Allison the umbrella [Applause] Amy and James thank you good night have you always done this defendant teller is that you what this is a one-time thing it's the only time I'm gonna do this so I actually build the puppets myself so absolutely incredible yeah so where did you come up with this idea well I thought you know what would be a neat idea to be able to mix puppetry and and magic and fake blood yes I thought you know what what better place to do it than here right so you've given yourself quite a challenge to do ventric can you help that's right I thought it'd be kind of a neat challenge to you know see what what I could come up with can you teach me how to be a ventriloquist ventriloquist well I see that the secret to being a ventriloquist it's basically practicing in front of him you're trying to talk without moving your lips and you know and then from there you know holding onto a sock and then you started with the sock and now you have Penn & Teller that's right yeah all right well let's see if Penn & Teller have a handle on how you did it right all right Penn teller which once president boy could not be more flattering it's just no I mean that sincerely I'm saying that boy to have someone good all that work it's stunning and very humbling oh thank you you know when they raped variety acts the trilha quests are always down there you're the bottom with magicians yeah but it's you know it's usually mimes balloon animals ventriloquist hypnotists actually a little lower much lower than this is the absolute rock bottom but if we're forced to put a ranking on them I think we've done that but boy we're just flattered and just loved it and I actually love Ventax and I I can't believe there's actually a puppet of me and a puppet of me that will be useful forever because I'll grow into it but I think we may have given you enough there as we were talked about what you were saying that you you assume that I forced the umbrella there's no force involved there's no force at all no it was a it was a free choice and it could have been any one of the emojis that was chosen and any one of them could have appeared on the cloth so that means yes I did you fooled us [Applause]

He peeped the selected emoji easily, anyway there was no fun, not anything interesting in his show. It sucked!

Dadson worldwide · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

Corny and not much of a magic trick the stamp fir them were in the clothe I saw him tag it .

My Name is Gladiator · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

"…alter the fabric of time and space itself." – anyone who thinks time is a physical dimension is stupid or a modern "physicist."

My Name is Gladiator · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

So why do you give away the ending of video in the title? You keep doing that. You ruin the whole point of us watching the video and earn an instant dislike and never sub from me and others as well.
That's like posting the end of a movie you are posting . Exactly like.

mgkpraesi · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

The Puppets were funny. But the big FU at the End is always the big laughter.

Nick .S · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

He has to throw in the anti trump thing

M Ean · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

Dead slow presentation

xd scrapped · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

VRIceblast · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

He should have said 30 years into the future. 6 months didn't make sense. The Puppets were incredible looking though.

Spongecake Squareshoes · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

Alison's a cutie, but she's shite on this show. Bring back Johnathon Ross

Jeremy Siopongco · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am


We Are A Bond · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

Don’t know why people are bagging on this guy. His performance was funny and I did not sense the audience dislike him.

Jax 49 · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

One word: WARIO

Adi R6S · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

he just knew the order of emojis thata stupid act

Michael H. · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

I just figured out that the biggest trick of all is that "Fool Penn and Teller" is scripted just like every other show these days.
This one was too easy for Penn and Teller NOT to figure out.
1. The paddles with the emoji's always remained in the exact same order.
2. Alison picked the third one up from the bottom/seventh down from the top.
3. When he gets the detonator, he punches it a certain number of times (seems to be seven?) which remotely sets that image pattern into the exploding device, creating that emoji on the cloth during the explosion.
Also, at 7:28 the camera pans out, while the puppet Penn is asking Alison what the emoji was, and you can clearly see the guy fooling with the cloth.
I know Penn and Teller saw these things, and have no doubt that these shows are as scripted as any other.
I guess they revealed too many magic tricks back in the day to make a name for themselves, and are now repaying their debt to magicians society?
The real question is, how do they decide who's going to "fool them", and who's going to be called out?

DLI cashare · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

I'm sure on the back of each emoji there is a secret code that only he can see.

MarLeo · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

Nevermind the trick. The performance was hilarious imo.

Nc Random · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

Has anyone noticed the trophies say FU

Cha Cha · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

I just find the constant awkward laugh annoying, and then you could really hear the audience's awkward laughs too.

Jonikles · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

goes to show
makes card vanish
they ask if there is sleight of hand
i say no
i win

Jeff Spieker · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

The cloth has different spots in it when the chemical sprays out and the areas on the cloth have different emojis and he knew the order of emojis she selected

Jeff Spieker · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

It’s the cloth

Trevor Allen · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

He went 6 months yet Penn and Teller aged 30 years

KemPin · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

N o t c h ?

LastOfADyingBeard · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

What did I just watch? That was one of the most uncomfortable moments I have ever watched on television. His nervous and sad laugh every few moments to make up for the lack of laughter in the audience was painful. The nervous looks around when it felt like he couldn't wait for it to be over. I could actually feel the emptiness myself and I felt bad for him. Not really sure I understand the trick fully either because the over drawn story telling diluted the actual trick. I just got lost in the nervous ventriloquism and bad plot scenario. Keep in mind that I usually dont criticize negatively w/performances on their show because a lot of the time they just want a chance to perform for P&T.

Goh Tee We · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

The emojis are not shuffled, he can memorize the order, and use the correct cloth or placement of the cloth to make the symbol appear, many ways to do this trick, nothing strange I believe.

TheSkepticSkwerl · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

The paddles all have handles. The one she picked was placed on the back of the pile. It's likely the handle explodes it's own shape. And he slipped it in on tellers puppet body.

James Ingram · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

Horrible….not entertaining…

Pitik Kluruk · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am


Da Ruler · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

Lame act

knife panda · May 16, 2019 at 9:52 am

If it's a magicians job to lie then they could simply fool Penn and Teller by saying no I didn't force. Still a fooler😜😂
