The Greatest Magic Tricks of Penn & Teller!

The magic duo, who have been in residence in their custom theatre at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas since 2001, have appeared in movies, in television specials, and in numerous guest appearances on various programs. They have hosted their own television shows such as Penn & Teller: BS on Showtime and Penn & Teller: Fool Us on the CW. They have written books and have performed a successful show on Broadway. Their entire career has been built off of the unique idea that they despise magic, even though it is what they make their living doing. For most of their tricks, they set out to reveal what it is that is actually taking place in your average, run-of-the-mill illusion show trickery. What audiences soon realize though is that even after hearing how a trick is done, or even after seeing how it is done, they are even more perplexed. That is the true magic of Penn & Teller – they make you experience magic by questioning magic. So here is our list of Penn & Teller's Top Tricks!

So, what do you think? There are so many great routines that didn't make this list that probably should have (I'm thinking immediately of Shadows). What are your thoughts? Get in contact with us and let us know!
