After hundreds of sold out performances and critical acclaim from his tour across the country, magician Michael Carbonaro will take over Las Vegas starting this Memorial Day weekend with his limited engagement, “Penn & Teller Present: Michael Carbonaro: Lies on Stage” at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.
The television star will conjure up a concoction of unbelievable magic, hysterical offbeat shenanigans, and wonder for audiences of all ages on stage at the Penn & Teller Theater beginning Thursday, May 26, 2022.
“While we are on tour in Australia from late May through early July, we’re going to turn the keys of our theater over to someone else for the very first time – our good buddy Michael Carbonaro. He is one of our favorite magicians and we are so happy to be able to present him in his first extended Las Vegas run,” said Penn Jillette.
Adds Teller, “I love Michael Carbonaro. He’s a great friend of ours. His magic is mind-blowing because he’s such a madly great writer/actor. I see him about midway between Disney and The Rocky Horror Show.”
“It’s an understatement to say I have been Penn & Teller fans my entire life,” said Michael “I can’t believe they are trusting me with this take over. I’ll try not to wreck the house while they are away.”
