Teller from Penn & Teller explains how this Egyptian street magician blew his mind

Once you get over the shock of, you know, hearing Teller actually speak, since part of his bit is never to speak, watch closely as you might miss a great lesson. In this clip, from a documentary Penn and Teller’s Magic & Mystery Tour, you get to hear Teller explain why a seemingly simple and unimpressive cup-and-ball trick is pretty genius. “The nicest thing you can do for a fellow magician, use his knowledge to fool the heck out of him.” Teller isn’t a fool. He gave his respect for a fellow illusionist, and earning his respect in the process.
