Penn & Teller
Penn is a cultural phenomenon as a solo personality and as half of the world-famous Emmy Award-winning magic duo and Las Vegas headliners Penn & Teller. Together since 1975, Penn & Teller’s live show spent years on Broadway and is now the longest-running headliner show in Las Vegas where it plays nightly at The Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. The pair has been awarded Las Vegas Magicians of the Year an amazing nine times. Penn & Teller currently co-hosts the CW Network hit competition series Penn & Teller: Fool Us! which was nominated for a 2017 Critics’ Choice award. The series returned for a ninth season in October 2022. His solo exposure is enormous: from Jimmy Fallon to Howard Stern, from Oprah to Colbert, to the Op-Ed pages of The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and the Los Angeles Times. A New York Times best selling author, his latest book is the rollicking crime caper “Random,” set in the underbelly of Las Vegas. His other titles include “Presto!” an insightful and very humorous look at his recent weight loss journey and ”God No! Signs You Might Be An Atheist and Other Magic Tales,” which spent six weeks on the New York Times Best Sellers list. His weekly podcast, Penn’s Sunday School, was the No. 1 downloaded podcast on iTunes during its debut week and was named by iTunes as Best New Comedy Podcast. As a philanthropist, his efforts have resulted in raising millions of dollars for Las Vegas-based charities AFAN (Aid for AIDS NV) and Opportunity Village. The annual “Penn & Teller’s 13 Bloody Days of Xmas” continues to be the most successful blood drive in the Las Vegas Valley, resulting in an average of 4000 pints donated every holiday season.
