Penn Jillette Keynote Speaker

Penn Jillette

Magician, Entertainer, Actor, Author
Keynotes by Pen Jillete are intimate conversations that examine the nature of respect and how simply accepting and tolerating belief systems can have negative consequences. Jillete's belief stems from the common occurrence of using religion and subjective views as an excuse for actions or inactions. As the co-host of 'Penn & Teller: Bullshit!' a show devoted to debunking popular misconceptions and pseudo-scientific beliefs, Jilette understands that although many individuals devote their lives to religion and use it to understand their world, this is an incorrect approach.

Most likely recognized as an American magician and entertainer Jillette, an outspoken and opinionated is an advocate of libertarianism and atheism, voices his distaste for ill-fueled tolerance and subjective decision-making. With regards to his education, Jilette graduated from Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Clown College, starting off his career as a juggler. He has since gone on to star in a national off-Broadway show and author books including 'Sock,' and 'God, No! Signs You May Already Be An Atheist and Other Magical Tales.'

Using subjective components to gain respect for others has an ill-suited future and is a careless action, according to keynotes by Pen Jillette.
