Penn and Teller Go Public (1985)

It's 1985 and two fresh-faced magicians take the stage at the KCET studio lot for their first ever television special. Their humor is crass yet sophisticated -- with no holds barred. Comedy-magic super-duo Penn and Teller spray gore, read poetry really fast, and reveal the true secrets of magic in this half-hour program filmed before a live studio audience. Three decades later, the program is still as relevant as it is funny.
