What are the challenges and benefits that come with playing in front of a Las Vegas crowd?
Penn Jillette: George Carlin hated playing Vegas. The big difference is not who the people are, but how they buy tickets. When we play Chicago or London, we're sold out two or three months before we get there. The people are very focused on the show they're about to see. The first laughs are more than they deserve. The first applause is more than it deserves.
In Vegas, three-quarters of the audience has decided to see our show within the last three hours before it begins. They decide to see our show based on, "Listen, honey, do you want to go to a buffet, do you want to fuck, or do you want to see a show? Well, let's see the one at 9. Let's see Penn & Teller."
