Exhibits in Vegas take enjoyment to completely new degree with extraordinary glitz, as well as big name headliners.

Throughout the early 1990s the pair could be seen performing on The David Letterman as well as Saturday Night Live and the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Not only did they make tons of appearances on national TV they also had a chance to host their own show called Penn and Tellers’ Sin City Spectacular. At this moment Penn and Teller became house hold names reaching the highest point of their careers.

Even though they have not been capable to maintain this amazing run of achieving success with regard to their TV show, they still do shows in Las Vegas and around the world. Penn and Teller’s main act is performing at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino which is a very popular Casino in Las Vegas. The two have finalized a long term agreement with the Rio. Penn says in the beginning of the show that this is not your regular show. After which the duo amazes the crowd with 90 minutes of nonstop entertainment and comedy. The illusions performed on Penn and Teller is just mind boggling and what makes their show better is that they explain how the tricks are done.
