(PRVegas.com) I recently attended the Penn and Teller show followed by a party with “The Bad Boys of Magic” at the lush Palazzo suites at the Rio. The magic of Penn & Teller is totally unpredictable, while you expect one magic trick, the unexpected happens and you have been fooled again, they are amazing.
“I had not seen Penn & Teller for over 10 years so I was looking forward to seeing them perform again and hung out with them at the after party to celebrate the extending of the show for another 3 years until 2013.” “Their comedy and magic show is great entertainment for the whole family.” – says Ken Summerville of PRVegas.com
At the end of the Penn & Teller show Jeff Solomon, assistant general manager of the Rio, and Michael Weaver, vice president of marketing for Harrah’s Las Vegas region, surprised the comedy-magic duo with a classic tenth anniversary gift of aluminum tin, gifting them with their own Penn & Teller-branded metal lunchboxes filled with their favorite treats – peanut brittle (Penn) and chocolate covered strawberries (Teller).
“After performing nightly for 10 years in the conveniently named Penn & Teller Theater, we’re really looking forward to spending another three years there,” stated Penn Jillette, the larger and louder half of Penn & Teller. “We’ve never played anywhere for this long or worked in such a beautiful theater. The Rio and its staff have really made this our true home.”
Throughout the years, Penn & Teller have remained on the forefront of the industry, appearing in their own Emmy-winning network specials as well as famously-outrageous appearances on “Late Night with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” the “TODAY” show, and television series such as “Friends,” “West Wing,” “Dancing With The Stars”.
Penn & Teller began a headlining engagement at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in January 2001. Since that time, they’ve been entertaining audiences with their daring trademark wit and shocking brand of comedy and magic. From playing with knives, guns, livestock and fire-eating showgirls and their eccentric comedy and magic the show is a great entertainment value for the whole family.
They perform in the Penn & Teller Theatre at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino nightly (dark Thursdays and Fridays) at 9 p.m. Tickets available online at Click2Vegas.com and other reputable ticket outlets.
