Brian Was on Penn & Teller: Fool Us

Hey! So Brian was on the TV show Penn & Teller: Fool Us. Check it out! Brian talked a bit about the experience in preparing and performing on the show. Also, right after his TV performance, he went over to the Podcast Awards ceremony and won a billion awards. Seriously, it was the same night. He was wearing the same clothes and TV makeup. SEE?!

Before you ask, yes, our favorite Kiwi magic expose-er is aware of Brian's performance. Proof. Spoiler: He totally doesn't know how Brian did it.

Name of the Devil Dramatic Reading

Brian, Justin and Bonnie did a dramatic reading of the back-of-the-book description of Name of the Devil. Bonnie read her part as the character "Andrew's Girlfriend". Long Weird Things fans will remember Andrew's Girlfriend from an episode three and a half years ago.

Then Brian read Andrew's bio as Tom Cruise.

After that, they talked a lot about Andrew's books. Mostly Angel Killer and Name of the Devil.
