3583 ratings | 591463 views
Penn & Teller's Magic and Mystery Tour is a 2003 television documentary miniseries starring Penn & Teller. The program was created by the CBC in association with Channel 4 Film. The show focuses on street magic, and the subjects of each of the three shows are China (Chinese Linking Rings), India (Indian Rope Trick), and Egypt (Cups and Balls, Gali-Gali men). Unusually for Penn and Teller, Teller speaks in the Egypt episode, even though part of their trademark performance is that Penn does all the speaking.

Why don't they eat the food? I understand no dog or insects but come on! Worst American travelers ever. Its embarrassing and disrespectful, and they have closed minds

Ah....Wan King....a lovely spot in the groin of China...I do enjoy Wan King in the summer, and Wan King in the autumn can be very calming....but I must say that Wan King in the winter, in the freezing cold, all alone, perhaps in a wooden hut and a fire , with just a magazine for company, that, for me, is when Wan King really can't be beaten....

If you slow down the mask guy, you can see him change the masks....that's less than 0.25 the speed at which he does it.

The fact Teller never speaks it Sukks , I really recommend that you Start Speaking too TELLER, fans would love to hear you speak too . You two are awesome. Perfect Best Friends , I've seen the chemistry between you two. Thumbs up to that , I'd buy beers and Peanuts watching your show. It's just I want Teller to speak in the camera too. It'll be great .

That big ass That big ass crown doesn't completely give it up? Just a mechanical crown that flips up the mask on command. Nothing spectacular but it is neat.

I love P&T but: Weird, only Americans would bring canned food on a trip like this one! Reminds me of Bill Gates when he visited Budapest some years ago. He could have sampled all the tasty delights of Hungarian cuisine, but the fool sent some guy to get him a Big Mac. Hopeless people, free from culture and respect for other countries altogether.

The part where they show Teller riding that bike HAHAHAHA, the look on his face just made the video worth it. That and "Now that our hair is clean we need to stop eating human flesh" HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

She didn't even look like she was that impressed. If he would've fucked up, he could've destroyed his hands for a "eh good"

So THATS where they got that national magic trick idea from!

I like how the person that does nothing but juggle all day every day was the one messing up while Penn never dropped a single thing.
killerbs420 (24 days ago)
Myself that is very possible. I agree she was very impressive. That is not an easy skill to acquire for sure.
Myself (25 days ago)
Maybe she was intimidated or not used to his style of throwing - or paired-juggling. You never know. I think her horseback show seemed incredibly impressive.
Josh H (2 months ago)
maybe in china they should shoot golf balls all day instead of balancing plates in their mouth.I will pay to see someone balance a plate in their mouth but only once
Zoe TheCat (2 months ago)
I'm kind of surprised that P&T were shocked to see all magic being handed down by rote without adding anything new or 'modern. Chinese in general appear to be the masters of copying things. Not much new is offerred ... just copy, rinse and repeat. Einstein himself called them "Automatons." That may sound derogatory...but it's the truth statistically. I remember when China first rolled out it's fleet of automobiles. They had copied the entire inventory of world autos...at least superficially. There was a perfect Hummer, a perfect Jeep, a perfect Rolls Royce, etc. It was only when you got in them and discovered that they needed monthly maintenance that the greater truth became obvious. This is true of EVERY SINGLE IMPORTED PRODUCT MADE IN CHINA!!!! Is this the fault of The State?? Open for debate. If you say 'yes' well, then you have your answer whether Communism is a good thing...right?

This piece shows that these two men are great artists and also great human beings.  You have to be special to travel like them to learn about their craft historically and connect with other cultures like this..  I really look up to these men.

This demonstrates why I distrust China's strident protests that it is too weak to seek war with the West. Sneaky, deceptive, and smart. As an American, I am forced to admire their craftiness.

Just watched this, I hope that you have grown because judging a culture from your perspective is no more fair than someone else judging ours from there’s. Would I like to live under those conditions, h no, but I don’t have enough information to make judgments for others. Might have been interesting to hear what there masters would have said about your technique. Just a question!

The deserted shrine to magic at Magic World is indeed bizarre, almost Kafka-esque. Communism is scary and stupid.
AvrgGuy (4 months ago)
Just like in every video of their foreign travel series, in this one too they reject sampling the true culture. This is the ugly American faux superiority most Americans are known for. Especially American tourists. Disappointing yet not at all surprising.

It's almost as bad as north korea. Since north korea's totally in bed with China it's understandable.

Man...After watching the comments I realized this was Beijing in 2003 rather than 1980.. I am from a middle sized city in china and in 2003 our city is completely mordern. I like Penn and teller but this episode is kind of misleading as they shoot this in rural area entirely..Although I'm sure the acrobat school does exist which is sad to watch, those are mostly kids from poor family and they will become farmer otherwise

I lived in China for 3 1/2 years. When Penn, like others, talks about the Great Wall of China they never specify which one. All told, there are 4 or 5 separate Walls. By the way, Penn, crickets are not truly grasshoppers although they belong to the same family they are from different branches and have distinct features that separate them, such as their antennae, grasshoppers have short antennae and the way they make sound, i.e. sing.
5:24 if you dont know who David Copperfield is well he is the comedian from BBC 80’s TV sketch comedy ‘Three of a Kind’ https://youtu.be/kc6XrS7LiMg

I moved to China from Atlanta, where I saw P&T perform live; even talked briefly with Penn! I wish they could see the magic in China today! You can still buy the Chinese magic rings in the same box.

There are assholes and genuinely good people in every culture. Western media/social media finds all the worst to portray. Likewise most of the western assholes can be found in the comment sections of youtube and Jerry Springer.

The director (Ric Esther Bienstock) and whole crew did so well capturing weird fascinating moments in this episode. 8:16 magic 10 face mask quick change guy 12:23 when Penn starts patting rhythmically with the hairdresser. and 14:25 oMG THAT ACROBATICS SCHOOL wow it's like a movie set, magical i - wow an acrobatic hogwarts, or more like beauxbatons academy :D probably too magical. that empty magic place is like a horror movie set 22:45 the hotel staff carrying the table down the hall 26:30 she juggled on a horse! 29:53 the magician family is boss 38:40
I guess i went much more recently but i'm a little disappointed they didnt try the food there. Real chinese food is fucking incredible, so much better than what we have in the west (and i love the chinese food we have in the west)
