Magician Ben Young will be appearing in the CW network’s series “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” season 3 on September 9. Ben will perform an original piece of magic, with the intention to fool Penn & Teller.
If successful, he will return to the Rio and open for one of the duo’s shows.
Young, who moved to Las Vegas from near Knoxville, TN just three weeks ago, is making his hometown proud.
“When a producer emailed me asking if I would be interested in being on the show, I was thrilled! But I never thought I would land a spot on the show…I’m just a 24 year old from Tennessee. But when I continued to receive updates and my name was still in the running, something clicked in my head and I started thinking ‘Oh my gosh…I might actually be on national television.’ And when I finally received the personal invitation to appear on the show, I was stunned. This was going to be big.”
Season 3 of “Fool Us,” premiered July 13, 2016, and showcases the best and the brightest magicians from around the country. Ben’s episode is set to air September 9th, at 9pm. Ben, who will be making “Fool Us” his national TV debut, was hand-picked to showcase on the show by the Executive Producers because of his quirky and likable personality onstage and off.
Ben Young is a frequent and regular guest star at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in the Murray “Celebrity Magician” comedy magic show.
