Penn & Teller have performed together for over thirty years combining the art of magic with comedy. And along the way, they have made the hardest trick of all – a remarkable career that ranges from stage to television to three best-selling books – look easy. Since first teaming up in 1975 when they combined Teller’s silent, occasionally creepy magic with Penn Jillette’s clown college education and juggling expertise, the duo have created an entertainment success story that went from the streets to small clubs to national theatre tours. Their live show has been a hit on Broadway and throughout North America and now has a permanent home at the Rio in Las Vegas. Penn & Teller’s understanding of magic and their ability to relate to audiences with their comedic approach has also garnered serious academic attention … they serve as Visiting Scholars at MIT which is the highest honour bestowed by the school.
The two have been frequent guests on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman and have appeared on several television series including NBC’s Saturday Night Live, ABC’s The Drew Carey Show and even FOX’s The Simpsons. Last year, they hosted Penn & Teller Tell A Lie … an interactive television series which aired on the Discovery Channel. Earlier this year, Penn was one of Donald Trump’s contestants on the fifth installment of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice and this March, he’ll be returning for All-Star Celebrity Apprentice where he’ll once again be playing for Opportunity Village, a Las Vegas-based organization focussed on assisting people with intellectual disabilities and integrating them into the community by providing vocational training, employment and social recreational services. Penn & Teller continue to keep a busy schedule and will be performing more than 100 live shows in the coming year including a one-night engagement at the River Rock Casino Resort on March 22, 2013.
