Penn Jillette

Penn Jillette is an Emmy-winning, New York Times bestselling author, whose live stage show, along with silent partner Teller, has been a long-running hit in Las Vegas, as well as on Broadway and on sold-out tours. On TV, he is the co-host of The hit CW series, "Penn & Teller: Fool Us!" and has made dozens of guest appearances on shows ranging from "Modern Family" and "Friends" to "The Simpsons" and "Scorpion."

His latest book, "Presto! How I Made Over 100 Pounds Disappear and Other Magical Tales," hysterically chronicles his unconventional weight loss journey. Topping 330 pounds and landing himself in the hospital, Jillette knew he had to make a lifestyle change. A rollicking read, "Presto!" is brimming with Jillette's biting humor and trademark skepticism detailing his weight loss of over 100 pounds.

Jillette is a frequent contributor to the Op/Ed pages of Los Angeles Times, CNN.com and The Wall Street Journal, as well as a pundit on CNN, Fox News and MSNBC.
