Heart surgery postpones the Penn & Teller Show

Penn & Teller have been a staple of the Las Vegas entertainment scene for nearly 30 years. And they’ve actually been together longer than that, since the late ’70s. They performed their first show together at a Minnesota Renaissance festival in 1975.

Penn & Tellers 21 years of racing Rio Hotel & Casino earned them the title of the oldest act in the same place in Vegas. However, they recently had to postpone their shows due to heart surgery. Cashier, the duo’s silent partner, has had its share of health battles. Open-heart surgery is just the latest. In 2018 and 2019, Cashier had to undergo three separate back surgeries in just 18 months.

Penn & Teller have temporarily taken down their infamous show, The Las Vegas Exam Log reported. Cashier underwent bypass surgery last Thursday and is now recovering. His doctors ordered him off stage for several weeks. Cashier was on stage a week and a half ago. And the duo hope to return to the Rio before the end of the year.

For the moment, we do not know if Penn will fill the void with its own variety of entertainment. It is certainly possible, as it has done in the past when Cashier had to take a leave. At the end of 2019, when Cashier was recovering from back surgery, Penn performed his Penn and his friends show with various guest artists. If no show is scheduled, Penn will undoubtedly have something to do. The first of their FX series”Penn & Teller: fool ustakes place on October 14. And PennThe last book comes out on October 11.

Penn & Teller have more than 12,000 shows to their credit. So we don’t expect this to be the end. They still have a lot of spectacle in them. The duo hope to be back on stage at Rio by November or December.
