Penn Jillette is the co-host of Discovery Channel's "Penn & Teller Tell a Lie." He is also one of the celebrity contestants in Season 5 of NBC's reality business competition "The Celebrity Apprentice."

Jillette previously co-hosted the controversial series "Penn & Teller: Bullshit!," which was nominated for 16 Emmy Awards, and was one of the dance contestants in Season 6 of ABC's reality ballroom competition series, "Dancing with the Stars" in 2008. He and his professional dance partner, Kym Johnson, were the first pair to be eliminated.

Penn Jillette is a cultural phenomenon as a solo personality and as half of the world-famous Emmy Award-winning magic duo and Las Vegas headliners Penn & Teller. His solo exposure is enormous: from Howard Stern to Piers Morgan, from Oprah to Glenn Beck, to the op-ed pages of The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and the Los Angeles Times.

He has appeared on "MTV Cribs" and "Chelsea Lately," and hosted the NBC game show "Identity." As part of Penn & Teller, he has appeared more than 20 times on "The Late Show with David Letterman," as well as on several other TV shows, from "The Simpsons" and "Friends" to "Top Chef" and "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." In 2005 Jillette produced and co-created the critically acclaimed documentary "The Aristocrats."

Penn & Teller's live show spent years on Broadway and is now the longest-running headliner show in Las Vegas, where it plays nightly at The Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. In 2011 the pair, together since 1975, was once again awarded Las Vegas Magicians of the Year. Jillette's newest book is "God No! Signs You Might Be an Atheist and Other Magic Tales," which spent six weeks on the New York Times Best Sellers list upon its release in summer 2011.
