Penn & Teller are two of the biggest names in comedy. This duo is outrageously funny, sophisticated, and unconventional. They mix comedy with well choreographed magic tricks in a way that’s intellectually stimulating to the audience. Penn & Teller’s edgy show is unlike any other magic production in Las Vegas. The tall, lanky Penn serves as a narrator, providing a running comedic commentary on just about everything they do, while the diminutive Teller provides a lot of the show’s action, all without saying a single word.
Penn & Teller’s show at Rio All Suite Hotel relies heavily on audience interaction. Several audience members are chosen to come up and be part of some tricks and to help confirm the authenticity of others. What also makes the show interesting to watch is that way that Penn rambles on and on and Teller just seems to stand in the background and do all of the leg work. Teller’s comedic timing is spot on.
Penn & Teller are always out to prove a point with their magic. They usually try to show the audience not to trust everything you see. Penn & Teller are pretty cynical when it comes to social topics. Penn & Teller have certainly live up to their billing as “a couple of eccentric guys who have learned how to do a few cool things.”
