Penn & Teller

If Penn’s libertarian grandstanding or Teller’s apparent lack of wherewithal to muster the occasional STFU lost a little of their magic over the course of 89 episodes of calling Bullshit! on everything from the Vatican to recycling, here’s a brief rundown of some of their weird and wondrous feats to remind us why we love them. They’ve appeared in music videos by Run DMC, the Ramones and Katy Perry, and guest starred in episodes of The Simpsons, Futurama, The West Wing and Babylon 5. Their direct-to-video Cruel Tricks for Dear Friends (1987) featured VHS-themed pranks, including a fake televangelist who appears to spout satanic messages when played in reverse. Their unreleased Sega CD game Smoke & Mirrors includes a level called “Desert Bus” requiring “players” to drive a passenger bus from Tucson to Las Vegas, in real time, at a top speed of 45 miles per hour. Sure, in one of their tricks they make an American Flag disappear into the Bill of Rights, but in another one Penn shoots a nail gun at Teller’s dick. May they never Get Killed. $49.50-$79.50, 8pm Fri, The Majestic Theatre, 226-3333, majesticempire.com. — Jeremy Martin
