Penn and Teller to make Richmond return

Magician-comedians Penn and Teller are returning to a Richmond stage in the spring, River Rock Casino Resort announced this week.

Their live show, which has proved a hit across North America, will come to River Rock Show Theatre March 22, 2013. It's a stage the 30-year duo has performed on before.

Fans know them from their stage performances, TV shows and three best-selling books.

The pair combine Teller's silent, occasionally creepy magic with Penn Jillette's clown college education and juggling expertise, both adding comedy to the mix.

They have a regular show at the Rio in Las Vegas, but continue to keep a busy schedule with more than 100 live shows planned for 2013.

Tickets, $79.50 to $99.50 (plus service charges), go on sale Dec. 13 at ticketmaster.ca and 1-855-985-5000.
