This week’s Celebrity of the Week are Penn & Teller, the famous illusionist duo. Their new documentary, Tim’s Vermeer, is released in Australia this week. It follows their friend Tim Jenison as he tries to find out how Johannes Vermeer painted such lifelike figures, and whether or not it could ever be replicated. It is getting rave reviews all over the world, and I’ll be getting my copy this weekend.
Penn & Teller (well, more Penn) are well known for their stance on individual liberty and the importance of freedom of speech. This clip is a fiery defence of the US Constitution’s First Amendment, taken from their his show Bullsh*t. Well worth the two minutes.
