Penn and Teller Break-up - Business Partners

After more than 35 years the brilliant duo of Penn and Teller are "breaking-up". They have been a Las Vegas mainstay for many years and have performed thousands of shows. They have provided death defying illusions to the amazement of millions of Las Vegas Show goers.
What you might not of known is the Penn Jillete and Teller are basically just business partners. They rarely socialize outside their show. They credit their success to this business relationship. Many of the long-term bands that have remained around for decades also practice this type of relationship. We all have that relative that we can enjoy as long as we see them only few times a year.
Penn and Teller wisely practiced this relationship. They had very little in common with each other except for the love of magic and showmanship. So why push the limits of their relationship by forcing social situations that can provide uneccesary stress?
I am sure we have not seen the last of the Las Vegas Strip Shows put on the great Penn and Teller. With their new TV show of Penn and Teller Tell a Lie they will return to Las Vegas for powerful high-priced shows.
