I really enjoyed their show. They interacted with the audience and demonstartedsome good tricks. They even showed the audience how the tricks worked. A good value for the money I paid to see the show.

I've always liked the pair - so we thought to take in the show - It's dissappointing - the venue is worn out

I saw Penn & Teller on Sat, May 30th with my 2 adult children. The tickets were $92 each and this was the ONLY show we decided to see while in Vegas. Our seats were on the Mezzanine level (2nd Floor.) For at least 2 of the acts, we could NOT see what was happening. Penn explained they do not... More

I was disappointed with Penn an Teller show at the rio. We were at the back of the theatre and we couldn t see the slight of hand acts. Maybe i m not their typical kind of audiance, but I was expecting bigger illusions.

They seem like lovely guys, but the show fell flat. Some of the tricks just seemed amateur and I was questioning why on earth they would put them in the show. There are far more interesting shows to see in Vegas.

Penn and Teller did not disappoint! The show was an excellent mix of comedy, magic and audience interaction. The price of the show was well worth the money. The magic tricks were excellent. I would highly recommend this show and would see it again. It was family friendly while still funny. They also do a meet and greet after the... More

First, I see a lot of reviews that decry Penn's "rants." I didn't find anything about the show to be overly rant-y, but you can tell he is both thoughtful and passionate about certain items. For others looking for a pure "Vegas magic" show, that's not what this tries to be. It's part magic, part comedy, part freak show. And... More

I LOVE MAGIC acts so I decided to go see Penn and Teller at the rio. too much talking. Teller looks full of himself and very arogant character. some of the tricks were good but not my cup of tea.

If you're expecting lots of glitz and special effects this may not be for you. Penn & Teller have always been opposed to big Vegas-style magic and this is reflected in their show which is low key, deliberately paced, and talky. But this makes for a very intimate and personal experience, even in a large theatre. Their tricks are old... More

This is a great show if you enjoy illusion. The audience participated heavily in examining material used for the tricks and in the tricks themselves. Part of the entertainment was watching the reaction of the impromptu stars from the aufience. Teller was the actual magician whereas Penn was the front man who set up the act. Good show.
