Overview

Mixing a lively blend of magic and comedy, the Penn & Teller show in Las Vegas at the Rio features the unique talents of Penn Jillette and Teller, who is famously silent throughout their performances. Together since 1975, the eccentric duo debuted in Las Vegas in 1993 and have been performing at the Rio since 2001. Penn & Teller are the longest-running residency act in the history of Vegas, so they must be doing something right because fans keep coming back year after year. Their quick wit and ability to shed light on traditional magic tricks put them on your must-see list when visiting Vegas. Penn & Teller's live show on any given night can involve knives, guns and fire. They famously stay after their performance to sign autographs and memorabilia for their guests. Penn and Teller are often described as magicians, comedians and entertainers. They began performing over 30 years ago, with Penn as the verbose front man and Teller as his quiet companion (although both are front-runners in the act). This formula carried them throughout their career, which gained popularity through the off-Broadway show Penn and Teller Go Public in 1985. While they performed well-choreographed magic tricks, they incorporated slick humor, which has since become their trademark. They soon appeared in two Broadway shows, and gained critical praise for their unique takes on traditional magic and comedy shows.

As they increased in popularity, they began to appear everywhere, from the stage to television and movies. Penn and Teller appeared on Late Night with David Letterman over 20 times in their career. Other appearances include Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Miami Vice, The Today Show, Saturday Night Live, Friends and much more! Their on-screen success led them to create their own shows, including Penn and Teller’s Sin City Spectacular, Penn and Teller’s Home Invasion, the Showtime movie Penn and Teller’s Invisible Thread, and the NBC specials Don’t 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. In 2003, they started their own popular television series in which they debunk myths about such topics as hypnosis, recycling and ESP. This show coincides with their Las Vegas act, which focuses on shedding light on famous magic tricks while incorporating humor and political rhetoric. The duo currently co-host Penn & Teller: Fool Us, a magic competition TV show on the CW, as well as Wizard Wars on SyFy.

The Latest News
