“Funny and clever”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We enjoyed the style of the show - Penn narrates the show and a lot of it is about how illusions are created. Even when you know how some tricks might be achieved - the results are mind-boggling. The show was funny and clever and a good evening. A final benefit is that both Penn and Teller meet the audience at the end for photos etc. Nice touch.

“I could not see or hear!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

I really tried to catch on to the show but I could not see or hear what was going on. Other people in my party said it was predictable and dull.

“Best show on the strip!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We saw this on July 6th/13.

I think a lot of people attend this show because they saw Penn on tv, and think it'll be a typical magic show - It's not. For those of us who follow Penn (and Teller) , it's an extra treat to see them in person.

They are able to show us some tricks, while adding humour into it with slight political tones. We follow the same methods of thinking as they do, so it was delightful and hilarious for us.

You can get 2 for 1 deals on Travel Zoo, or just pay the full price - it's worth it either way. We sat in the 4th row and were glad how close we were.

My only annoyance were people coming in late and disrupting the show. Show up on time!

Penn & Teller both stay after the show in the lobby to sign autographs and take photos - much appreciation to both of them for doing that as a lot of acts will charge you an arm and a leg to do so.

“Penn & Teller”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is an amazing show! Penn tells you there is no magic, but it was magical to me. Be sure to arrive early for pre-show surprise events.

“Great show!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Penn and teller are a great show with a lot of 1:1 time with the audience. Funny and honest all at the same time! It's a must see. We paid $60 per ticket and were in the 5th row.
