Teller

Adapter / Director

Teller makes his Chicago Shakespeare Theater debut. Teller has been the smaller, quieter half of Penn & Teller since 1975. With Penn Jillette, he has played off and on Broadway, toured in North America and Britain, and currently is the longest-running headline act in Las Vegas. Penn & Teller have written and starred in television series and specials, including eight seasons of the Emmy-nominated Showtime series Penn & Teller: Bullshit!; Penn & Teller Tell a Lie on Discovery; Penn & Teller’s Sincity Spectacular on FX; Behind the Scenes, a PBS children’s series on the arts; The Unpleasant World of Penn & Teller, a magic and comedy series on England’s Channel 4; and the current hit series, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, for The CW. Teller has written for The Atlantic Monthly, Smithsonian, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Esquire, GQ, The New Yorker; as well as three books with Jillette and two on his own. He is a frequent contributor to All Things Considered on NPR. Teller and Aaron Posner co-directed a version of Shakespeare’s Macbeth and he co-wrote and directed the acclaimed stage production Play Dead, (off Broadway and Los Angeles). Earlier this year, Teller made his feature-length film directorial debut with the Oscar-shortlisted and BAFTA-nominated Tim’s Vermeer, a Sony Pictures Classics release. This past summer, Teller triumphantly returned to Broadway co-starring in Penn & Teller On Broadway.
