Penn Jillette Net Worth: Penn Jillette is an American illusionist, comedian, musician, actor, and best-selling author who has a net worth $175 million dollars. Penn Jillette, who is a graduate of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Clown College, is one half of the successful comedy/illusion/magic duo "Penn and Teller". He is an outspoken atheist and libertarian and purchased a house in Las Vegas that he dubbed "The Slammer." "The Slammer" has been featured in dozens of television shows and articles since it was built in 1994, and he currently records music there, and also uses it as a studio. He was born Penn Fraser Jillette on March 5, 1955, in Greenfield, Massachusetts. It was in the mid 80s that Jillette first rose to fame opposite touring partner Teller and since they gradually switched from performing tricks in small-time dives to co-emceeing one of the most popular nightclub acts in the United States. They dazzled the audience with various tricks that involved juggling knives, swallowing massive embroidery needles, eating fire, and all other kinds of deadly mayhem. This led the two men to make one of their earliest appearances on Saturday Night Live, after which they branched out into concert films and movie roles (My Chauffeur, Tough Guys Don't Dance). Let's not forget their own eponymous feature, Penn & Teller Get Killed (1989), directed by Arthur Penn. In addition to all of the above, the duo also headlined its own Showtime network series, Penn & Teller: Bullshit!. Penn Jillette went on to achieve stardom on his own as he was the executive producing and directing photography for the standup comedy tribute film The Aristocrats (2005). This raunchy, all-star series of variations on a single monologue featured such luminaries as Phyllis Diller and Bob Saget. In 2008, he participated in the season six of the competitive reality series Dancing with the Stars opposite Kym Johnson. Later on, Jillette would see ongoing success in the media, teaming up with Teller again for the 2011 series Penn & Teller: Fool Us and Penn & Teller: Tell Us a Lie. Penn has also recently appeared as a contestant on the 2012 season of The Apprentice, and in 2014 on the reality series, Celebrity Wife Swap where he swapped lives with stand-up comedian, Judy Gold.
