Penn and Teller – Vegas’ longest-running headlining act
Renowned for their spellbinding combination of magic and comedy, Penn and Teller are the longest-running headlining Las Vegas act of all time. Check out the various Penn and Teller tickets on offer at StubHub.
Illusions and comedy
Widely regarded as one of the greatest magic double acts ever, Penn and Teller first took to the Vegas stage in 1993 at the 1400-capacity Celebrity Room at Bally’s Hotel and Casino. Buoyed by the success of their Atlantic City run at Trump Plaza, in which they shared the bill alongside the likes of The Temptations, Dana Carvey and B.B. King, the duo instantly wowed critics and audiences alike with their mix of daring illusions and satirical comedy. The pair later moved to the MGM Grand’s Hollywood Theatre before debuting at the Rio Hotel and Casino in 2001, where they have remained ever since. As a result, Penn and Teller have become the longest-running headlining act in the history of Las Vegas, regularly playing up to 6,000 fans per week at the theatre named after them.

Expert raconteur, master magicians
Penn and Teller may have been performing at the Rio since the turn of the century. But that doesn’t mean they have been resting on their laurels. The pair are constantly mixing things up, ensuring that there’s something to offer for audiences whether they’re seeing the show for the first or the umpteenth time. The duo famously engage the crowd in very different ways, with Penn serving as the ultimate raconteur and Teller communicating solely through non-verbals. But when they join forces, magic literally happens. And it’s the jaw-dropping tricks that keeps the Vegas audience coming back year after record-breaking year, whether it’s completely original illusions such as Shadows or new twists on classic illusions such as the bullet catch-and-bag escape. The duo also subvert the art form by performing tricks gone wrong, exposing various methods and adding a political angle to their routines.
