Canadian Legacy Project Presents Penn & Teller
On October 20, 2017, Canadian Legacy Project will present magicians Penn & Teller in support of our Canadian military veterans. For over 40 years Penn & Teller have defied labels and at times physics and good taste, by redefining the genre of magic and inventing their own very distinct niche in comedy. With an amazing eight wins as “Las Vegas Magicians of the Year,” their 16-year run at The Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino makes them the longest running and one of the most-beloved headline acts in Las Vegas history, outselling every other resident magician on The Strip.
“We are thrilled to be able to present Penn & Teller for their first time in Calgary. Canadian Legacy Project is dedicated to supporting our Canadian veterans and this annual concert event is one of our main fundraising activities.” stated David Howard, President of the Canadian Legacy Project. “The great thing about presenting Penn and Teller is that it is a family show and we will be hosting 400 veterans and their families to show our appreciation for these men and woman who stood on guard for all Canadians.” stated Howard
