Since Penn is the only one who takes, I believe he is tired of doing it. He seemed to run all the words together in a hurry because it was the 1000th time he said them. Perhaps he is bored with the repetition and we could tell. The tricks were OK but the incessant talking in monotone voice and no... More

We went to this show last night. Booked months ago so we had front row seats. I love magic and To me Penn and Teller are the best. I could not believe that they stay in the lobby after the show so you can meet them. They control the crowd. No one pushes in and nobody feels rushed and the... More

I was surprised at the amount of talking from Penn. Maybe he does this to distract us from the next illusion. It was entertaining, but not what I expected. It just didn't have pizzazz or professionalism. Some of the illusions were great, but just not my cup of tea. I think it's just me, the audience liked them and my... More

We enjoyed every minute of this show. You will laugh, wonder how it happened and be moved by the show. Most of all you will be thinking about it and laughing for days.

What a beautiful theatre! It was hard to figure out where to park but after that all was good. The Rio casino is rather in need of updating though. The Penn and Teller show was very entertaining and very entertaining after a long day walking around the strip. We were very impressed that they stayed after the performance for photos... More

Loved the show and they are even better live than on tv. It had lots of variety and audience participation but wasn't your typical magic either. Great messages mingled with entertainment.

What a great show! These two guys are a real hoot. Penn Jillette came out after the show and talked to the audience as we were leaving. We took a selfie with him. He’s a really big guy. I was afraid that my arms weren’t going to be long enough to get the three of us in the picture.

I like Penn and Teller. They promote skepticism and share most of my political and religious beliefs. Their show also demonstrates this by doing magic tricks that bypass metal detectors and take some comedic jabs at the TSA. They perform some cool magic tricks that are indistinguishable from claims by psychics which nicely promotes critical thinking. Each magic trick has... More

We were so disappointed in this show. Penn and Teller perform like they're bored. There's no "zing", no enthusiasm for what they're doing. They were good, but their stage presence made the show very disappointing. There are so many other great shows in Las Vegas, and Penn & Teller seem as if they're tired/bored. Skip this one and save some... More

This is a superb show that I highly recommend. Flawless performance from the two masters who kept the audience guessing and as is their way shared a few secrets along the way. There is a Jazz duo who,perform live for an hour or so before the main act, this was not to my taste, very jazzy jazz lots of showing... More
