Martin Šriber : What a twist.

Gaurang Pednekar : I had to watch this twice.

Alanna Trebond : I did not see that coming!

Mishael Arviano : that's why their face looks fuckin weird!

siccore : yeah his face looks so red because of the upside hanging.

Amit Sharma : Its 2017 Penn Haircut???😂😂😂

Andreas Uten : It took me all the way up to the light bulb before I got what was happening.

Sidowse : That awkward moment when you realise you have bitten off more than you can swallow.

Robin Tamblyn : how does Penn keep his voice so clear during this (much more nasal in the Unpleasant World version). Amazing...

Beux J : Seriously though, Penn and Teller are two of my favourite classical comedians, if you get me. Teller is a slapstick and moving picture mastermind and Gillette is just fantastically overtly aggressive. I have genuine love for these two people.

GuitarStrings : Are we live!?

Funkytrip73 : Bleh, I accidently read the description text gaving the act away...

Aalbert Torsius : Great job giving away the trick in the description, SNL! At the very least, put it below the fold!

Ryan G. : It rises exactly at the speed of gravity!

Man : Just me or is there an odd amount of laughing at the start?

RnB NerdyGeek : 4:54 Penn says "FUCK IT, PUT IT AWAY" Are they live?!?!

1 4m 3l33t : They are hanging upside down,brilliant. 

TheWhistler1967 : Why the fuck did you put the punchline in the description...

lisa Wood : wow so young and still going strong

schpeidermann : wow! if i hadn't watched this video until the end..I'd feel embarrassed.... very cool tele trick!!!

Andyelmasry : Wow ... who went back to watch again?

impossibletimelord : Don't read the description! Also I remember seeing this live in '86, SNL was the only show my parents let me stay up for, I always hoped that Penn and Teller would be on more often they are the best!

ShowToddSomeLove : Young Penn sounds like Dan Aykroyd

sirlouie : @Saturday Night Live (Uploader): You should not have spoiled this in the description like you did. Please consider revising it.

Gary V : I clicked on this thinking it was a sketch joke on Penn and Teller, as in some of the cast were acting as the magicians. But when the video started I'm like, "No, that's them. They look weird. What's the gag?" Then the card trick and I laugh "Oh they're upside down."

Dom Joseph B. : Teller had to swallow food upside down

drhassoon : Wow, how young were they? :D

Edric Chan : That is just brilliant. :)

Nemesi : fuck me the audience doesnt shut up... every single word there's a laugh from the audience.

faboze : Omgggg no way

Haiz : never trust a magician

2Addicted2YT : When I first watched this the first thing that came to my mind was P&T had some weird hairstyles back in the day and rolled up sleeves must have been the style back then. I figured it all out though round about when they came down.

Rowbins Productions : I figured it out pretty early on.

GreyboSneed : I miss the 80s

Clash Royale Tournament Highlights : So was there any magic to this haha, only thing cool was the cup

marcanthonynolan : The agony on their face throughout this. All I see are professionals torturing themselves for their art. It's fantastic and made with a level of love for the craft than I could ever imagine, but its a little hard to watch with any sense of personal empathy. Lol

Tom Ogier : I think everyones overlooked the spinning hoop on the table at the end

GAMER 4.0 : how the statue disappear

Nick Carstensen : I was wondering why tellers face was red

Mycoffee26 : Took me a bit too long to realize what was going on

Eric Bourque : So thats why they are all laughing at the start...

Tomáš Holec : How the hell did they do THAT? :O

Saul Pena : I knew they were upside down halfway there... Their hair gave it away.

Phoebe I : Omg thats why their sleeves are rolled up.

Wolff : Took a minute to realize what was going on

Zoologic21 : I feel like a fucking dumbass.

Keith Otis Edwards : What a fake. The Audience was in on it. They're all hired stooges. The Rising Card trick is done with anti-magnets forcing the card out of the deck. The Empire State Building prop goes into Teller's tie. The bouncing muffin is made of rubber, and you can see that he doesn't swallow it. At 5:30 you can see the doll is pulled up with a wire. So obvious. They should have done better tricks. This is dedicated to InItForTheParking, Yamato905, Robbers dee, Mind Warehouse and all the other morons who pollute this site with their idiotic reveal comments and videos.

CPChess : I spent the whole video thinking, "that doesn't really look at all like Penn, but damn they found a guy that looks so much like the real Teller!" And then I realized it was the real Teller...

Andrew Keller : When the statue of liberty disappears, you can see its shadow go upward on Teller's shirt.

mark curry : How does he manage to mouth the words backwards for that long ????
