Penn & Teller announce UK dates

First British gigs in three years

Comedy magicians Penn and Teller have announced a run of UK dates.

The duo , who last toured the UK in June 2014,  will be playing Manchester, Glasgow and five nights in London in June next year.

Their TV show Fool Us is currently running on America’s CW network, which revived the format after ITV axed it after one series in 2012.

Other TV appearances range from Fallon to Friends, The Simpsons to Colbert, Modern Family to Top Chef – and they have been resident at the Rio hotel in Las Vegas for 15 years, making them the best-selling magicians on The Strip.

Penn Jillette also co-produced and co-directed the 2005 documentary The Aristocrats, about a famously dirty joke traditionally shared by comedians.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday.

The dates are: 

June 10: Manchester Apollo

June 15: Glasgow Clyde Auditorium

June 21-25: Hammersmith Eventim Apollo
