Did Kimlat fool Penn & Teller?
Central Florida's local magician, Kostya Kimlat, http://www.kostyakimlat.com, recently filmed in Las Vegas for Penn & Teller's "Fool Us" television program. The season starts airing July 6 on the CW network.
"Fool Us" is a magic competition in which magicians perform tricks in front of American magician-comedian duo Penn & Teller. If Penn & Teller cannot explain how a trick was done, the magician or magicians who performed it win a five-star trip to Las Vegas to perform as the opening act in Penn & Teller's world-famous show at the Rio Hotel & Casino.
Kimlat, the son of Ukrainian immigrants, recently proposed to The Roth Family JCC's marketing director, Amy Schwartz, during one of his performances. The surprised Schwartz, of course, said yes.
