Joshua Lozoff on Penn & Teller: Fool Us

When: Mon., Aug. 13, 8 p.m. 2018

Magician Joshua Lozoff is used to baffling Triangle audiences with a thoughtful but mischievous combination of mind games, parlor magic, and sleight of hand. Still, it takes something more to do your act in front of the two toughest customers in magic with a national TV audience looking in. Last December, Lozoff got the nod that he'd be on Penn & Teller: Fool Us this season. Then he realized he somehow had to boil down his audition piece, a mentalism effect that took twenty-five minutes in his live show, to four and a half minutes for television. That disappearing act took months in itself. "I'd bitten off more than I could chew," Lozoff admits, "but as the piece evolved, it became much stronger." Can Lozoff compel host Allison Hannigan to pick the animal he's predicted ahead of time? Will he fool Penn and Teller? Tune in Monday night (or Friday night's repeat broadcast) for the answer. —Byron Woods
