Season 5 of Penn & Teller Fool Us kicked off a few weeks back and there have been a mixed bag of acts so far. For me the standout has been Ryan Hayashi. He sports a 4F pin, so Mike, Robin, Steve, et al, may know him. As for me, never heard of the guy. All I can say is WOW! Double Wow, even! The guy is talented and entertaining. Here's a clip.

A couple of other great acts were Andrew Evans and  Matt Marcy. Both performed updates on classic effects. Evans had a nice spin on ye olde broom suspension, and Marcy made the ID into an entertaining and compelling act. (You know where to find those clips if you are interested.)

Dirk Losander floated by. And Eric Jones and Paul Gertner appeared on an episode dedicated to rematches.
 
Anyone else caught the acts? Thoughts?

Anthony,

I totally share your excitement about Ryan Hayashi. That is one of the coolest routines I have ever seen. It's not just the great coin handling and routining. His presentation and demeanor are off the charts awesome. I've been generally happy about the acts this season. But Ryan was just fantastic.

Looks like Kostya Kimlet will be appearing on tonight's episode (16 July). Since he fooled 'em with his RRC last time I wonder what he's got up is sleeve?!

A trophy should be awarded not only for the entertainers who fool Penn and Teller, but also to the performer whose act is the most entertaining for a specific episode.

Ryan would have easily won that trophy as well!

I've only seen Paul Gertner so far. Glad to see Allison Hannigan wearing a different outfit

You be funny. But isn't it interesting that no one ever seems to notice that P&T wear the same clothes every episode in a season?
