Known for their outrageous blending of comedy and magic, that often skewers the genre of traditional magic, Penn & Tellers live show has been a hit on Broadway and around the country and now has a permanent home in Las Vegas right here at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino
Edgy, provocative and hilarious, Penn & Tellers live show on any given night can involve knives, guns, a fire-eating showgirl and a duck. Known as the Bad Boys of Magic, for supposedly revealing the secrets to their tricks, they may show you how its done, but they still manage to leave you startled.
Be sure to stick around after the show, as both Penn and Teller hang out in the theater lobby, meeting and greeting guests, posing for photos and signing autographs.
Their weekly hit Showtime series, Penn & Teller: BS as well as their Emmy-winning network specials and their legendary appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, had Entertainment Weekly name them two of the funniest comedians alive.

Every guest gets to meet Penn & Teller in the theater lobby after every show
September is an exciting month for the duo as they celebrate their fifth year as headliners in their own theater at the Rio All-suite Hotel & Casino, as well as two Emmy nominations for their Showtime series, “Penn & Teller: Bullshit!”
And along the way, Penn & Teller have made the hardest trick of all – a remarkable career that ranges from stage to television to three best-selling books – look easy. And they’ve done it all on their own, distinctively offbeat terms.
They call themselves “a couple of eccentric guys who have learned how to do a few cool things.” Since first teaming up in 1975, when they combined Teller’s silent, occasionally creepy, magic with Penn’s clown college education and juggling expertise, the two have created an entertainment success story that went from the streets to small clubs to national theater tours, and now to a current, multi-year engagement at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
By 1985, Penn & Teller were receiving rave reviews for their Off Broadway show and Emmy award-winning PBS special, “Penn & Teller Go Public.” In 1987, they began the first of two successful Broadway runs. Penn & Teller had national tours throughout the 1990s, gaining critical praise from New York to San Francisco for bringing a fresh slant to an often-tired show business realm.
The first of more than 20 appearances on “Late Night with David Letterman” soon followed, along with appearances on a wide range of television: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Miami Vice,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “Hollywood Squares,” “The Today Show,” “Saturday Night Live,” “The Drew Carey Show,” “ Friends,” “Dharma & Greg,” “Home Improvement,” and one of television’s most honored rolls: animated guests on “The Simpsons.”
They also created their own television projects, including “Penn & Teller’s Sin City Spectacular,” “Penn & Teller’s Home Invasion,” the Showtime movie “Penn & Teller’s Invisible Thread,” and the NBC specials “Don’t Try This at Home” and “Penn & Teller: Off The Deep End.” Penn & Teller made their big screen debut in Penn & Teller Get Killed and were featured in Walt Disney’s Fantasia 2000 .
In 2005 Penn & Teller lent their version of the world’s dirtiest joke to the critically acclaimed documentary, The Aristocrats. The film, produced and co-created by Penn, is now available on DVD.
Penn & Teller’s understanding of magic and their ability to relate to audiences has also garnered serious academic attention. They serve as Visiting Scholars at MIT, that school’s highest honor, and have lectured at Oxford University and the Smithsonian Institution. In 2001, they received the Hugh M. Hefner First Amendment Award.
Penn & Teller have written three best-selling books, Cruel Tricks for Dear Friends, How to Play with Your Food, and How to Play in Traffic; and penned pieces in outlets ranging from The New York Times to Playboy.
And after three decades together, there are no signs of slowing down. Their latest project, “Penn & Teller: Bullshit!” is in its fifth season. The controversial show, which has received 11 Emmy nominations, including two in 2007, and the 2004 WGA award for Outstanding Comedy/Variety Series, tackles the frauds and fakes behind such topics as talking to the dead, alien abductions and feng shui. Earlier this year, Penn served as host of the NBC game show “Identity” and hosted his own nationally radio show on CBS stations across the country.
Penn & Teller appear nightly in Las Vegas at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.
