Magic, Music, Sex...and Talking Cutlery?!!?
Magic, you say? Oh yes, there's plenty of that! Music, you mention? Yes, complete with Lou Reed and the rather well-chestily endowed Candye Kane! Sex, you whisper? Well, not much of it...but Teller does get some attention paid to his magic wand! Talking Cutlery?!!? Ja, complete with horrendous, horrendous German accents and silly stage-blocking!

Yup, you read right! Penn & Teller's SinCity Spectacular had it all! It debuted on August 10th, 1998 to rave reviews from many newspapers across the country, and online newswires as well. "Sinfully delightful" shouted one headline.

I agree! Penn & Teller set out to show it all, and that's what the average viewer saw: Variety at its' most unusual and most talented. I mean, where else on ANY program could you have seen a veteran performer like Frank Gorshin doing impressions and perhaps later in the show, see Tom Comet shoot bottle rockets out of his %$#&.

The only bad point I would give SCS was that, if you are a die-hard Penn & Teller fan, it sometimes put them in a rather embarrassing light. As the season went on, the musical numbers that Penn & Teller would appear in just became inane and drawn out, making them wear ridiculous costumes, and not using either of their skills as performers.

If I may tip my hat to sorely missed reviewer Gene Siskel, I give Penn & Teller's SinCity Spectacular a THUMBS UP!
