Penn & Teller
Penn & Teller
For those looking for some edge and comedy in their magic show will get that and more with Penn & Teller at the Rio Las Vegas. During their 10-year run at the Penn & Teller Theater, this duo has become one of the must-see Las Vegas shows. Penn, the much bigger and verbose of the two, does all the talking. Teller, the smaller, but equally funny partner proves you can get some of the biggest laughs without ever saying a word. Their rapport is apparent from the moment they walk on stage — or when you watch their hit show “Penn & Teller: BS!” on Showtime — for a polished performance that’s been honed over the last 30 years.
Nobody ever really knows what they’re in for when they go to one of Penn & Teller’s shows. Will you see a showgirl eating fire, knives, guns or maybe a duck during a particular show? Nobody knows, and that’s the whole point. They’ll let you in on the secrets behind some of their best tricks — a reason why they’re known as the “Bad Boys of Magic.” And even after knowing how the trick works, they’ll still find a way to startle you. Penn & Teller have no problem tackling any topic with their biting comedy effortlessly as they perform their elaborate illusions. It’s just one of the many reasons why they won “Las Vegas Magicians of the Year” in 2011 for the sixth time.
