Added DiffLines:

* DefeatingTheUndefeatable: A lot of the acts that appear on ''Fool Us'' regard doing exactly that - fooling Penn & Teller with their routines - as this trope, and flat out admit that since the duo have been in the business for so long, that the odds of pulling it off are very slim.

* OneOfUs: The writers at ''Wired'' were surprised that Penn scored very highly on their geekery-quotient test - higher than even Stephen Hawking.
** They shouldn't have been, though; Penn wrote a column for PC Computing magazine for a good stretch of its run where he reflected on the intersection of technology and pop culture.

* HiddenDepths: Because Teller is mute and the ButtMonkey, often a lot of magic skills aren't called out or noticed - it can even seem like he's a subversion of a beauty assistant that other magicians have. But he is in fact a very talented magician in a great deal many magical disciplines.
** Considering that assistants are also trained and an important part of their acts while trying to look like they're not, not ''that'' much of a subversion.
** Also, Penn has stated on multiple occasions that Teller is a much better magician than he is.

'''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.
