Penn & Teller

Penn & Teller are billing their three-day stand as being suitable “for mature and informed children aged 8 and up,” meaning likely a PG-rated version of their popular Showtime series Bullshit!. Skepticism is sure to be the order of the evening, since Penn Jillette—the big, loud one—recently described his audience this way to the Village Voice: “There are skeptics, there are atheists, there are libertarians that live here in the U.S. and they’ve never, really never, been catered to before. And it’s amazing how little you have to cater to them. All you have to do is have someone that doesn’t hate them, and they crawl out the woodwork.” So if local atheists cheer as the duo cheerfully debunk magic acts and Bible tales, fans should also prepare to see some liberal shibboleths overturned, too.
