Magic Teacher Schools Penn & Teller!

Las Vegas – September 8, 2017:  Last night on the CW, while becoming only the 8th performer of this season’s Fool Us to actually fool Penn & Teller, master magic teacher Jeff McBride told the pair that, “Magic is not always a puzzle to be solved, but sometimes a mystery to be experienced.” McBride proceeded to fool them completely with one of his signature pieces, known as “Rainmaker,” which conveys the story of a mysterious unseen force that causes two metal bowls to fill and refill with seemingly endless amounts of water.

McBride is a teacher of the art of magic and has been wowing Las Vegas audiences since he first appeared at Caesar’s Palace with Diana Ross back in the 1980’s. He became one of Las Vegas’ youngest stars when he headlined Le Bal de Moulin Rouge Revue at The Las Vegas Hilton when he was only 25. McBride headlined Caesars Magical Empire, and for the past 9 years has hosted his own magic nightclub, Jeff McBride’s WONDERGROUND in Las Vegas.

McBride’s Magic & Mystery School was founded in 1991. The school is a “Real life Hogwarts” that teaches stage magic and close up magic to hundreds of professional magicians from all around the world. Students include A.G.T. winner Mat Franco. Designated “the world’s most prestigious magic school,” by BBC TV, McBride’s School is a major influence on the art of magic around the world.

Most recently, McBride has returned from a two-month, 5-city tour of China with his Las Vegas Magic Stars show, conceived and produced in concert with illusionist Greg Gleason. The show is scheduled to return to touring early in 2018.

What’s next for McBride? “At this point, I’m focusing mostly on our magic school and bringing quality magic to audiences who wouldn’t otherwise receive it. I’ve been strongly inspired by my late teacher (and Dean of our School for 26 years), Eugene Burger. Eugene said, ‘The enchantments of magic point beyond mere illusion to the Great Mystery of life, the eternal transformation of life, death and rebirth.’”
