Mahdi Gilbert fools Penn & Teller

By Art of Magic - Monday, August 1, 2016


Our friend Mahdi succeeded in fooling master magicians Penn & Teller on FOOL US. Watch his performance and learn a little bit more about Mahdi's evolution as a conjuror over at ConjuringArts.org.

“I remember being a teenager and seeing guys like David Blaine and Derren Brown, and not really knowing what I wanted to do with my life. Seeing them really had a profound effect on me. Seeing these amazing guys who could do anything sort of gave me a feeling that I could do anything. I think what I want to do for people is along those same lines. Magic is about imagination, and I think that I want people to feel like magicians. It’s such a powerful idea, and it’s so simple: a person who can do anything. I don’t know how to do it yet, but I know it can be done, because it happened to me.” - Mahdi Gilbert for ConjuringArts.org

Also find a list of Mahdi's preferred reading in our series, Library of Wonder.
