Penn said: “We’ve been working together 45 years and are now coming out of the longest break we’ve ever had from working together. We are so excited to start touring in the UK playing our favorite theatres.

“Is this our last UK tour? We don’t know, but you’re welcome to buy tickets and hope for that, while we’ll be hoping for more final tours than the Stones and Cher put together.”

Audience participation

These shows will feature Penn & Teller’s classic tricks performed live amid their unique brand of humour and audience participation.

The Emmy award-winning TV stars are best-selling authors and Las Vegas icons. Their Showtime series “Penn & Teller: BS!” was nominated for 16 Emmys.

Past ventures included the highly successful ITV’s “Penn & Teller Fool Us!” hosted by Jonathan Ross on Saturday nights, “Penn & Teller Tell A Lie” for Discovery Channel and Channel 5’s “Fool Us in Vegas” TV show is in its seventh series.
