Penn Jillette is the larger, more audible half of the famous duo Penn & Teller. For over 30 years, they've entertained audiences with magic, comedy and anything else they set their twisted minds to. With a deep booming voice, clown college education and expertise in juggling, Penn has become the showman of the group, and perfectly compliments Teller’s silent style of magic. Together Penn & Teller have become one of Vegas' most attended shows and have also popped up in a number films, TV series and specials. Recently, Penn & Teller stared in the Showtime award winning series "Bullsh*t," which exposed the frauds and fakes in today's society. Jillette is also the author of the new book Everyday is an Atheist Holiday. Follow Penn on twitter and try his new Celebrity Apprentice Ice Cream available at Walgreens.
For years comedian, songwriter and philosopher, Tim Wilson has been joining us on the air and in that time has treated us to a number of classic tunes such as My Brother In-Law, I Could Be Wrong and Church League Softball Fistfight. And though he's one of our most frequent guests, it's still an adventure every time he stops by, thanks in part to his uncanny ability to find a story to go along with any topic of conversation. But as a warning, if you're even talking to Tim, try to avoid mentioning The Bible, NASCAR, credit cards or Jimmy Carter. Along with writing comedy tunes, Tim is also author having written a book, Happy New Year - ted, about serial killer Ted Bundy. He's also just released a new digital album available for download at Amazon called Caffeine, Wired, Nervous and Pale.
Comedian Daniel Tosh has always been outspoken and outrageous, but until now, he has only used these talents for stand-up comedy. That all changed on his new show "Tosh.0," where he is using his powers to take on the Internet, one blog, vlog, post and tweet at a time. Tosh is a Tonight Show veteran, is frequently on Comedy Central, has been featured on "The Late Show with David Letterman" a number of times, starred in a series of Taco Bell commercials and is one of the few guests we've allowed to remain in the studio after taking off his pants. The third season of "Tosh.0" premieres Tuesday. January 11th at 10pm ET on Comedy Central.
