Why See Penn & Teller?
Penn & Teller aren't your typical magicians. Instead of trying to fool the audience with illusions, they explain how they're done - but if you think that would defeat the point of their shows, think again!
The outrageous comedy magicians first took America by storm in 1975 with their anarchic brand of comedy and magic, with Penn Jilette providing much of the speaking - whilst Teller prefers to communicate through mime and often sarcastic facial expressions. In fact, Teller is known simply as Teller, having legally changed his name some time ago!
Anything goes at a Penn and Teller performances, and their material spans from gory tricks and clever pranks, to tackling issues in science and religion, political satire and by exposing frauds.
In addition to their live magic shows, they presented Penn and Teller: Bullshit! from 2003 to 2010 where political topics came under scrutiny, debunking pseudoscientific ideas, paranormal beliefs, popular fads and misconceptions, from a naturalist libertarian capitalist point of view.
