Over a 35 year career, Penn & Teller have redefined the genre of magic and invented their own very distinct niche in comedy. The magically funny duo will bring their act to the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino for a show on Friday, October 26 at 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and are priced at $20, $30, and $40.
Tickets may be purchased online at www.foxwoods.com, by calling the MGM Grand Box Office at 866-646-0609 or Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000, or in person at the MGM Grand Box Office.
Named “Las Vegas Magicians on the Year” an astounding six times, Penn & Teller’s 11-year run at The Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino makes them one of the longest running and most-beloved shows in Las Vegas history, outselling every other resident magician on The Strip.
The dynamic duo has written three New York Times Best-Sellers, hosted its own Emmy nominated variety show for FX, starred in their own specials for ABC, NBC and Comedy Central and produced the critically lauded feature film documentary “The Aristocrats.”
Their acclaimed Showtime series, “Penn & Teller: BS!” was nominated for 13 Emmy Awards and is the longest-running series in the history of the network. The show tackles the fakes and frauds behind such topics as alien abduction, psychics and bottled water. Their newest television venture, “Penn & Teller Tell a Lie” premiered on the Discovery Channel last year. Penn displayed his business savvy as a cast member on the most recent season of NBC’s “The Celebrity Apprentice.”
With inclusions in the New York Times Crossword Puzzle, as answers on Jeopardy and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Penn & Teller’s status as cultural icons and the preeminent duo in comedy was once again reinforced when Katy Perry personally asked them to co-star in the video for her #1 song, “Waking Up in Vegas.”
