It’s no illusion. A Calgary-based magician will be appearing on Penn & Teller’s TV show, Fool Us, on July 1.

An illusionist, Derek Selinger is the first Calgarian to appear on the show, which is now in its  sixth season.

“To perform an original piece on the world stage is an honour. To perform something no one else on earth is performing in front of magic legends Penn & Teller is a double honour,” Selinger said. “And being a Calgarian, an Albertan and a Canadian, it is particularly an honour to be shown on Canada Day.”

Fool Us is taped at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas and features magic legends Penn & Teller. Magicians who appear on the show try to fool Penn and Teller with their routines. Selinger will perform his original piece The Deadly Gallows, which has also been in his live touring show The Gift. He also performed it during a show at the Jack Singer Concert Hall in 2017.

The episode can be seen on the C.W. Network at 6 p.m. on July 1.
