Holy Bus it’s Penn & Teller!


Penn & Teller are world-famous American magicians and entertainers who have performed together since the late 1970s, and are noted for their ongoing act that combines elements of comedy with magic.  More importantly (to us, at least), they are a BIG part of how Desert Bus For Hope came to be. Penn & Teller’s Smoke and Mirrors for the Sega CD contains the Desert Bus mini game, without which Desert Bus literally would not exist!

Penn & Teller are appearing at 7PM PST! Got a question for them? Tweet @DesertBus with the hashtag #DBPandT and we may ask your question on-air!

It’s often said that you never know what’s going to happen here at Desert Bus, and for good reason. Moments ago we had a call from Penn Jillette, the selfsame Penn of Penn & Teller’s Smoke and Mirrors, which is pretty awesome to begin with. But that was far from the end of it. Being an excellent fellow and great friend of our little enterprise, Penn spontaneously put up an incredible Las Vegas prize package for auction:

  • 2 tickets to Penn and Teller‘s Live show in Las Vegas
  • 2 nights in a suite at the Rio in Las Vegas
  • Round of golf at Cascata with Emily Jillette
  • 2 Tickets to Mac King
  • 2 Tickets to David Copperfield
  • Limo to and from the airport
  • If you’re nice to Emily Jillette, she will also take you to dinner
  • If you arrive by BUS, you can visit them at their house =)


As it looked like we were about to declare a winner, Penn dropped another bomb on us, something that had never happened before in Desert Bus history… he announced that the top three bidders would all receive the prize package! Boom. Our three, three, three winners who will soon be painting the town red in the City of Sin were:

  1. mugenity @ $7,700
  2. Impsy @ $7,613
  3. omega_lairon @ $7,500

(Put those numbers together, by the way, and you come up with the formidable sum of $22,813.)
