The blending of magic and comedy star on stage when Penn and Teller are around.

The duo, who performed for the first time together in 1975, will bring their hilarious and fascinating brand of entertainment to The Venue at Hammond's Horseshoe Casino on March 7.

Known for their zany and irreverent approach to illusion and magic, in which they debunk myths, make fun of popular tricks and showcase an assortment of fascinating trickery, Penn Jillette and Raymond Joseph Teller are one of a kind entertainers who've carved out a special niche for themselves in the show business field.

Penn and Teller, known as the "Bad Boys of Magic," have earned a number of Emmys for their past Showtime series "Penn and Teller: BS" and have remained a popular fixture on the Las Vegas stage. Their show at the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas has been running since 2001, making it one of the longest running shows in Las Vegas. The duo have appeared on various television shows through the years with Penn also taking a shot at Season 5's "Celebrity Apprentice."

In concert, fans will likely see a variety of the duo's popular tricks and some new attractions. Among favorite Penn and Teller illusions are their own modern take on the bag escape, the "Magician versus the Juggler," Penn hanging upside down and the Teller in water feat.

FYI: Penn and Teller will perform at 8 p.m. March 7 at The Venue at Horseshoe Casino, Hammond. Tickets range from $29 to $59. Visit horseshoehammond. com or ticketmaster.com
