'''Penn Fraser Jillette''' (born March 5, 1955) is the tall, talkative one with long dark hair. '''[[OnlyOneName Teller]]''' (born February 14, 1948) is the short one who [[TheVoiceless never speaks]] and makes [[SilentSnarker amusing facial expressions]] on the frequent occasions when Penn exposes him to danger. They were introduced to one another by a mutual friend in 1975. Ever since then, they've done most of their work together, developing their own rather quirky style of magic.
