PENN & TELLER bring their spectacular Vegas show to the UK in June 2014

PENN & TELLER ARE BACK…
 THE KINGS OF MAGIC BRING THEIR SPECTACULAR VEGAS SHOW TO THE UK

London, 3rd December – Comic Magicians, or ‘Evil Geniuses’ as described by David Letterman, Penn & Teller will be returning to the UK next June, 2014, to play some very special shows starting in Manchester and Birmingham, before playing a mammoth 5 nights at the Eventim Apollo Hammersmith in London. Tickets go on sale Friday 6th December at 9am from www.ticketmaster.co.uk.

These shows – part of the legendary team’s first ever UK tour -- will feature Penn & Teller’s classic magic tricks performed live amid their unique brand of humour and audience participation. No show will be the same. You never know what will happen!!!

Celebrating 40 years as magic’s most outrageous and innovative team, Penn & Teller are Emmy award-winning TV stars, best-selling authors and Las Vegas icons. Their Showtime series, “Penn & Teller: BS!” was nominated for 16 Emmys. Their latest ventures were the highly successful ITV's "Penn & Teller Fool Us!" hosted by Jonathan Ross on Saturday nights and “Penn & Teller Tell A Lie” for Discovery Channel.

For years Penn & Teller have defied labels – and at times physics and good taste – by redefining the genre of magic and inventing their own very distinct niche in comedy. With sold out runs on Broadway, world tours, Emmy-winning TV specials and hundreds of outrageous appearances on everything from ‘The Royal Variety Performance’ to  ‘Friends’ to ‘The Simpsons’, contemporary comedy’s only team show no signs of slowing down.

With an amazing six wins as ‘Las Vegas Magicians of the Year,’ their 13-year run at The Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino makes them the of the longest running and one of the most-beloved shows in Las Vegas history, outselling every other resident magician on The Strip and earning them the accolade of ‘The single best show in Vegas’ by the Los Angeles Times.

Don’t miss your chance to see the funniest and most unique magicians in the world in this new and never seen in the UK show.
