ABOUT THE PENN & TELLER VEGAS SHOW
Edgy, provocative and hilarious, Penn & Teller have been captivating live audiences at Rio Las Vegas since 2001 when their show originally opened. This show will be a culmination of years of on-stage experience mixed with innovative and creative twists to be enjoyed by long-time patrons and new fans alike.
Their live show combines amazing sleigh-of-hand, large-scale illusions, and classic sideshow routines. Known as the "Bad Boys of Magic" for supposedly revealing the secrets to their tricks, they may show you how it´s done, but they still leave you startled. The Los Angeles Times proclaimed it the “…the single best show in Vegas.”
The luxurious and spacious theater can seat 1,475 people, with balcony and mezzanine seating available. Plus, with high ceilings and massive theater space, this theater can rival any of the top performing arts centers in the world.
The Penn & Teller theater is located along Rio’s Convention Way, just past Starbucks and the spa.
ABOUT THE FAMED MAGICIANS PENN & TELLER
Together since 1975, Penn & Teller debuted in Las Vegas in 1993 and have been performing at the Rio since 2001. They are currently the longest-running headliners to play in the same Las Vegas hotel.
The two are winners of an Emmy, Obie, and Writer’s Guild Award and also have their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Their Showtime series, "Penn & Teller: BS!" was the network's longest-running series and was nominated for 16 Emmy awards. Their current show on TV “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” on The CW, has been credited with launching the careers of many new magicians. On top of all these accolades, Penn & Teller had three successful Broadway runs and three sold-out tours of England. Entertainment Weekly also included them on its "50 Funniest Comedians Alive" list.
Fun facts: Penn attended Ringling Bros, Barnum & Bailey Clown College. And contrary to Teller’s silence, he actually taught Latin class in high school. They've also played their animated selves twice on “The Simpsons.”
"The most intelligent show in Vegas, as these two -- magicians? illusionists? truth-tellers? BS artists? geniuses? -- put on 90 minutes of, yes, magic and juggling, but also acerbic comedy, mean stunts, and quiet beauty."
"Eccentric comic magicians Penn & Teller once seemed an unlikely fit for Las Vegas, but they're more popular now than when they came to town more than a decade ago. The two have spread into mainstream culture beyond the Strip, thanks to Penn (the big loud one to Teller's short mime) becoming a cable news pundit and Celebrity Apprentice contestant."
