Penn Jillette is the larger, more audible half of the famous duo Penn & Teller. For over 30 years, they've entertained audiences with magic, comedy and anything else they set their twisted minds to. With a deep booming voice, clown college education and expertise in juggling, Penn has become the showman of the group, and perfectly compliments Teller’s silent style of magic. Together Penn & Teller have become one of Vegas' most attended shows and have also popped up in a number films, TV series and specials. Recently, Penn & Teller stared in the Showtime award winning series "Bullsh*t," which exposed the frauds and fakes in today's society. Jillette is also the author of the new book Everyday is an Atheist Holiday. Follow Penn on twitter and try his new Celebrity Apprentice Ice Cream available at Walgreens.
Not the Messiah
In 1979, Monty Python’s Life of Brian turned the Biblical epic on its head. Now, the creators of Spamalot Eric Idle & John Du Prez turn classical music on its ear! Prepare for Not the Messiah (He’s a Very Naughty Boy), the comedic masterpiece that combines all of the unforgettable humor of the Python’s most celebrated film with the overblown grandeur of operatic solists, full symphony orchestra and chorus. Filmed live on October 23, 2009, the performance stars Eric Idle with special appearances by original Python troupe members, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, and Terry Gilliam.
