We saw Penn and Teller over Thanksgiving in November. While Teller is magical to watch when performing magic, the overall content was flat. There was an extended piece about the US flag, hand guns and the Constitution that wasn't very dynamic or theatrical. I had seen some great documentaries with Penn and Teller, and expected something much better in real... More

Penn makes his political views (Libertarian) clear in this show, and sometimes I wished that he would just stop and get on with the magic. The magic was fun and entertaining. I really enjoyed this show, but I think I enjoyed the (cheaper and apolitical) Mac King comedy magic show even more. Still glad I saw it. Be forewarned: there... More

Really good way to spend an evening whilst in Vegas if your not a gambling person. I went with three collegues as a way to unwind during a conference attendance and we had a great evening, stunned and entertained by Penn and Teller's wizardry. I can't say anymore without giving away some of the shoes content, but do go and... More

Absolutely loved the show! It was a blast to finally see them in person. Love that they explain some of the illusions and how they include the audience. Highly recommend.

Penn & Teller have been performing in Vegas for twenty years so you are in safe hands from the moment you get there. Doors open an hour before the show. If you turn up early you are rewarded with an hour of jazz music from Penn and the chance to get up on stage to inspect some props for the... More

Was disappointed with show. Except for the first two acts (which I thought was entertaining), the other acts had way too long of a intro and not an exciting finish. If you've seen magic in the past, you've probably seen these. With all the young and talented magicians performing now, Penn and Teller's show looks outdated and boring. Sorry, I... More

We went to Penn and Teller and stopped at the slots on our way to the show. Won $2160 so the evening was already a success! The show was enjoyable but they are so used to their own schtik that Penn talks 100mp minute and I had to really listen a few times to catch it all. I would go... More

So this was a highly rated show and thus I thought it would be great to watch for our staff. On the whole it was a pretty good show but my issue was the pacing. I thought the show moved on very slowly and the punch lines took forever to get to. Penn and Teller have thousands of acts so... More

The single best thing we have done since we got here. If you're a fan of them already (like me) don't miss it. They do a meet and greet after their show and LITERALLY wait until everyone gets a picture or autograph. I was told must other acts charge for this, but Penn & Teller love their fans and do... More

These guys put on a great show! Comedy and magic great for the whole family. Show ran about an hour and a half, and we felt we got our money's worth. Several of the tricks were really good. One of the best parts, after the show they both come out in the lobby to take pictures or sign things. I... More
