Kansas City, MO – Comedy-magic duo Penn & Teller will close out the 2017-2018 Kauffman Center Presents season on June 22.

For more than 40 years Penn & Teller have defied labels – and at times physics and good taste – by redefining the genre of magic and inventing their own niche in comedy. With sold-out runs on Broadway, Emmy Award-winning television specials, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and hundreds of TV appearances, comedy’s most enduring team shows no signs of slowing down.

Tickets for their June 22 performance go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Friday, April 6. Tickets will be available through the Kauffman Center Box Office at (816) 994-7222, via the Kauffman Center mobile app, or online at Penn & Teller in Kansas City is generously supported by NetStandard.


With an amazing eight wins as “Las Vegas Magicians of the Year,” Penn & Teller’s 17-year run at The Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino makes them one of the longest-running headline acts in Las Vegas history. Their acclaimed Showtime series, Penn & Teller: BS! was nominated for 13 Emmy awards. They currently host the hit series Penn & Teller: Fool Us! for The CW Network.

Penn & Teller have written New York Times bestsellers; hosted an Emmy-nominated variety show for FX; starred in their own specials for ABC, NBC and Comedy Central; produced the critically lauded feature film documentary The Aristocrats; and produced the acclaimed documentary Tim’s Vermeer. Penn & Teller recently returned to Broadway in a triumphant six-week engagement that USA Today called, “deliciously unsettling.” Learn more about Penn & Teller on their website.
