I think most people are at least somewhat familiar with C.S. Lewis’ book The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. It has been a popular book for decades, and has even had some of its lore borrowed for other fantasy stories like The Magicians.

Penn & Teller have a guy who’s really tall and another who remains silent. Newcomer Shin Lim has an unruly mop of hair and stylish clothes. Tiger guys, big guy/quiet guy, hair guy – you know who I mean, right?
