Time Out says

The magical duo cancel their Sydney show.

PLEASE NOTE: This event has been cancelled due to the government ban on mass gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic


Since the mid-1980s, Penn & Teller have been the most bankable magic double act on the planet, combining hilarious sight gags with sleight-of-hand magic and grand illusion. They've had a residency in Las Vegas since 2001 while filming TV special after TV special, and have made appearances on every series from Friends to The Simpsons. Their latest show, Penn & Teller: Fool Us!, is an international hit, inviting comedians from all over the world to test their talents in front of these two masters.

But somehow, they've managed to never visit our shores with one of their shows. Now they're righting that three-and-a-half-decade wrong with eight shows at the Capitol Theatre in April. These dates were rescheduled after health issues forced the pair to pull out of their Sydney Opera House shows in early January. Expect new bits alongside old favourites as Penn (the tall, pony-tailed one) and Teller (the short, not-very-chatty one) bring their unstoppable wit and spectacularly unconventional magic to our grandest performance venue.

The show is recommended for audiences aged eight and over. Tickets are on sale January 30 at 9am.
