Penn & Teller to get Walk of Fame star near Houdini, Friday

My favorite magicians Penn & Teller will receive a star on the historic Hollywood Walk of Fame this Friday, April 5, at 11:30am. Their star will sit at 7003 Hollywood Boulevard, just steps from Houdini's star at the corner of Hollywood and Orange. Here's part of the official press release:

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is prepping for a magical day on the Walk of Fame when magicians Penn & Teller will be honored with the 2,494th star on the famed Walk of Fame. “We selected the perfect spot for the star,” stated Ana Martinez, Walk of Fame Producer. “It will be unveiled at 7003 Hollywood Boulevard just steps away from the star of legendary Houdini and right down the street from the historic The Magic Castle!” 
The Magic Castle, which is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year, will be honoring Penn & Teller the following day on Saturday, April 6th with the coveted "Magicians of the Year" Award.

Gubler and guest speakers David Copperfield, Trey Parker and Matt Stone will help the duo Penn & Teller unveil the 2,494th Star in the Category of Live Performance at 7003 Hollywood Boulevard down the street from the historic The Magic Castle. 
“Fans can watch the thrill LIVE on!” said Martinez.

Thanks for Joe Fox for the tip. 


  1. Fantastic. Can't believe I am in the UK and watching it live.

  2. I was there! Great time. Everyone went back to Castle after the star dedication for a second ceremony (P&T getting the AMA Magician of the Year award) and a lunch in the Inner Circle. Hanging at the Magic Castle with Penn & Teller and David Copperfield. A dream day. :)
