Penn Jillette        

Magician; Runner up on NBC's 2013 Celebrity Apprentice

Penn Jillette is a cultural phenomenon as a solo personality and as half of the world-famous Emmy Award-winning magic duo and Las Vegas headliners Penn & Teller.

Jillette co-hosted the Discovery Channel's "Penn & Teller Tell a Lie" and was a contestant on NBC's "The Celebrity Apprentice." He co-hosted the controversial Showtime series "Penn & Teller: Bullshit!," which was nominated for 16 Emmy Awards and was the longest-running show in the history of the network. His solo exposure includes appearances on "Dancing with the Stars," "MTV Cribs" and "Chelsea Lately," and he had also hosted the NBC game show "Identity."

As part of Penn & Teller, he has appeared more than 20 times on "The Late Show with David Letterman," as well as on several other TV shows, from "The Simpsons" and "Friends" to "Top Chef" and "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." Together since 1975, Penn & Teller's live show spent years on Broadway and is now the longest-running headliner show in Las Vegas where it plays nightly at The Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

Jillette's latest book is "God No! Signs You Might Be an Atheist and Other Magic Tales," which spent six weeks on the New York Times' best sellers list upon its release in 2011. His podcast, "Penn's Sunday School," was the No. 1 downloaded podcast on iTunes during its debut week.
