Jillette: 'The Outside World's A Hell Hole'

TV magician Penn Jillette is happy to be American - because every other country is "an absolute hellhole".

Jillette - one half of PENN AND TELLER - has travelled the world as part of the conjuring duo - but would happily take the US over anywhere else , despite the States' "lack of freedom".

He says, "Every place outside of the USA is an absolute hellhole. As much as we can complain about the US's lack of freedom, I just can't stand when they force women to dress like Batman, when they leave little girls out to die. I mean, at least we address the issues of equality and freedom, which are not even addressed in a place like Egypt or China or India.

"Other countries are pieces of s**t, so they have a holier-than-thou attitude. I think the most insulting thing you can say about anybody is that they're more popular in another country."
