Penn & Teller aren't your typical magicians. Instead of trying to fool the audience with illusions, they explain how they're done. But don't think you're going to walk out of the show knowing a bunch of new magic tricks. Their explanations aren't enough to defy their efforts to both amaze and amuse their audiences. The duo has been performing together for more than 30 years and recently celebrated their 10-year anniversary performing at the Rio.
Along with their success in Vegas Penn & Teller have also developed a following through their Emmy-nominated Showtime series "Penn & Teller: Bulls***." In the television show, much like what they do with their magic, the pair examine common mainstream beliefs by uncovering the facts, history and commentaries behind them. In their Vegas show, Penn & Teller may perform under the guise that they're debunking illusions. Yet, in doing that they actually create more mystery about their magic by explaining how something is done and still astounding the audience with their demonstrations.
