Some good news for a change

Sound the trumpets and let heaven and earth rejoice! Penn & Teller are finally returning to Atlantic City!

The dynamic duo--one of the smartest, funniest, most entertaining acts in show biz history--have consented to spend Memorial Day weekend at Harrah's Resort Atlantic City. The three-show run--for which tickets go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m., will mark the team's first apperarance in AyCee since the 20th century. For the past eight years, Penn Jillette and his silent (onstage) partner, Teller, have been reigning princes of the Vegas entertainment scene thanks to their one-of-a-kind show at Harrah's corporate sibling, the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

Before they catapulted to multi-media stardom, P&T were regulars at Trump Plaza. They even filmed several scenes of their 1989 movie, "Penn & Teller Get Killed" at the Plaza.

Show times are 9 p.m. May 22-24. Admission is $75 and $40. For tix and info, call 800-736-1420, or go to www.ticketmaster.com.

Philly native Chuck Darrow has literally covered Atlantic City’s casino scene since Day One: He was there on assignment the night in November 1976 when voters approved legalized casinos.

Since then, Chuck has covered the town and its gaming industry for several area newspapers -- which is why, in some circles, he’s known as “Boardwalk Charlie.”
