Penn (Penn Jillette) is the tall one that talks non-stop; Teller is the shorter one who does not speak a word during the main show.
Teller’s name at birth was Raymond Joseph Teller. He had his legal name changed to “Teller”. Teller actually holds a U.S. passport that was issued to him with only the name of “Teller” as his name on the passport.
Penn finished in second place on the 2013 season of the television show “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice".
Penn & Teller's magic show at The Rio includes pre-show musical entertainment, the main magic show and a meet-and-greet with the magicians in the lobby after the performance. Penn & Teller's act is a blend of comedy and illusion, with a bit of political banter thrown in for good measure. Penn talks practically non-stop during the performance, allowing the audience to learn his views on politics and the world (he is a libertarian). He will also talk the audience through many of the illusions the pair are performing. Even though the audience will hear a clear explanation of how the trick is done, it does not make much of a difference: the illusions they perform are still mind-boggling and amazing!
What To Know:
The historic Penn & Teller magic show is the longest running headliner to appear at the same hotel in Las Vegas. Named the “Las Vegas Magicians of the Year” in 2013, this pair has earned the respect of fellow magicians worldwide as well as the love of audiences in every venue where they have ever performed.
Penn loves using social media; lucky audience members who take the time to shoot a tweet off to him before the show may be surprised by a response from him.
Penn & Teller respect their audiences and are determined to give them their money’s worth. Their interaction with audience members does not end when the show is over. After the conclusion of the show, Penn and Teller take time to meet with each and every audience member that wants to stick around, posing for selfies, signing autographs and answering questions. They do not leave the theater until every person is satisfied. This is a breath of fresh air, as so many other Las Vegas headliners actually charge fans for autographs and photos. Instead, with Penn & Teller, the photos are free. What an incredible souvenir!
Do's and Don'ts:
- Do get to the theater in plenty of time to locate the appropriate seat and enjoy the pre-show entertainment.
- Do take the opportunity to examine the props if allowed to do so before the show. This is a great time to snap a souvenir photo! It also enhances the fun and mystery of the actual show.
- Do check out the jazz band that provides entertainment as audience members are finding their ways to their seats. Patrons ‘in the know’ may recognize one of the band members.
- Don't be too distracted by Penn’s banter during the show: Teller’s sleight of hand is brilliant, and his expressions are priceless.
- Don't miss out on the chance to meet the performers after the show. It’s a great opportunity to score an autograph or free souvenir photograph.
Is it Worth It?A Fantastic show at a magical price!
