Magician/comedian duo Penn & Teller performed two shows at Bumbershoot in 1994 at the Opera House. As you can see in this picture, Teller served as the butt of most of Penn’s jokes in between their illusions. Since they played at the Festival, they have taken their special blend of humor and shock value on several national tours, and currently perform 6 nights a week in Las Vegas at the Rio.
