Teller has co-written and directed the show.
Todd Robbins is the co-writer and star.

To say that "It's Todd Robbins's show" or "Teller's show" makes no sense. Seems like a true collaboration.

A glowing review from The Wall Street Journal:

Penn was in Newark Airport Thursday, so perhaps he saw the show.
(Their Vegas show is dark Thursday and Friday.)
