Penn and Teller, the “Bad Boys of Magic,” have been delighting audiences and debunking myths of legerdemain on the Las Vegas Strip for over 21 years. In their show at the Rio, voted Best Comedian/Magician by Casino Player Magazine, the erudite and eloquent Penn and the silent but highly talented Teller go way beyond the usual rabbit-out-of-a-hat tricks with amazing feats, often explaining how they did it.

Penn and Teller have been performing together for over 30 years and headlined two Broadway shows. They have appeared on Late Night with David Letterman 20 times, Late Night with Conan OBrien, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Miami Vice, The Today Show, Saturday Night Live, Friends, The Simpsons, Modern Family and Top Chef, as well as their own Showtime Emmy-nominated series Penn and Teller: BS and their current CW series Penn and Teller: Fool Us. Their on-screen success led them to create their own shows, including Penn and Tellers Sin City Spectacular, Penn and Tellers Home Invasion, the Showtime movie Penn and Tellers Invisible Thread and the NBC specials Dont Try This at Home and Penn and Teller: Off The Deep End. Penn and Teller made their big screen debut in Penn and Teller Get Killed and were featured in Walt Disney’s Fantasia 2000. Here are 5 reasons to see their show:

Find out the secrets behind the magic
If you always wanted to know how magicians perform their seemingly impossible feats, Penn and Teller break it all down for, even inviting audience members on stage to film them with their phones.

Comedy and magic combined
The duo isn’t just adept at magic – they’re very funny. Penn and Teller keeps the laughs coming with sharp political and social commentary during their tricks.

See Penn jam
Yes, there’s music too! Before the show, Penn plays the bass with jazz pianist Mike Jones.

Be a part of the show
Get ready for 15 seconds of fame. Many of the duo’s feats and illusions call for audience participation, so don’t be surprised it you are called on stage to help out.

Meet and greet the stars
Penn and Teller love their fans. Every night after the show, they show up outside the theater to greet the audience, chat and sign autographs.
