Derren Brown - Live ... pioneered a new form of magical entertainment. Derren Brown (born February 27, 1971) is an English psychological illusionist and skeptic of paranormal phenomena. He was born in Croydon, South London, where he attended Whitgift School, where his father was the swimming teacher. While studying Law and German at the University of Bristol he attended a show by the hypnotist Martin S. Taylor that inspired him to turn to illusion and hypnosis as a career. Around 1994 he worked as a conjurer, practicing the traditional skills of close-up 'magic'. In 1996, he started performing stage hypnosis shows at the University of Bristol under his then stage name of Darren V. Brown.
Newest Review: ... He claims to be a master of hypnosis techniques, neuro-linguistic programming, multiple body language reading techniques and much more. He begins his shows (TV and theater) with the claim that his results are achieved through a combination of 'magic, suggestion, psychology, misdirection and showmanship'. Derren asks his audience not to reveal anything too specific about the Svengali show, ... more

I have been a huge fan of Derren Brown for many years now and this was my first time to see the man live. He didn't disappoint one bit and I certainly had one magical night. Derren Brown - Svengali: Wolverhampton Grand Theatre , May 3rd 2012 Keeping anything a secret in today's world is a very difficult thing. In this age of being able to type a string of incoherent sentences into Google and yielding an answer within seconds, endless knowledge is available at the click of a button. How, then, can an art form such as magic survive in today's openly revealing society? Many workers have claimed that online video sites detailing ... Read the complete review

derren browns tv shows have always been something i have enjoyed, and so when i heard he was coming to my area to perform i decided i really wanted to go and see him. No one else i knew would go and see him, as they were too worried about what he might do, but i went along on my own and i have to saythat it is the best thing i have ever seen live. There still is a huge variety of content, and whilst i have the knowledge to know how some things are done, for others i was still left spellbound. Also, i was lucky enough to be one of the people randomly selected from the audience (via frisbee) to be able to go on stage, and that for me was fantastic. i know alot ... Read the complete review

I have been fascinated with Derren Brown's remarkable techniques ever since Mind Control was first broadcast on Channel 4 several years ago. He uses a very clever mixture of psychology, sometimes hypnosis, misdirection, showmanship, body language and cold reading. His ability to convince people that he can read their mind by using these techniques is masterful. His live performances, though they contain significantly less variety, seem to be all the more impressive, though I don't know if I could go and see him live, I don't think I would have the guts. After all, it's not nice to have someone messing with your mind! Derren's live shows always ... Read the complete review

This is actually a review for Derren's "Something Wicked This Way Comes" show, so if it's a bit specific, you'll know why... *****THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS***** -Introduction- I've always been a fan of Derren Brown. I'm not sure if just his amazing acts or his wit, or even a mix of the two but whatever it is, I find him and his stunts spectacular. Unfortunately I was unable to see his Live show of 'Something Wicked This Way Comes' so obviously I was excited upon discovering it's arrival to DVD, and boy was my excitement well placed. -The Show- The show itself is extremely entertaining. Derren is his usual ... Read the complete review

I'm a big fan of Derren Brown's TV shows, and couldn't resist the temptation of buying a ticket to his show at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall in June. I was going with two friends, one of them a big Derren fan, like me, and the other being rather disinterested in him but coming along for the night out, nevertheless. We arrived at the concert hall in plenty of time and we were soon ushered in to take our seats. We found ourselves three rows from the front, and I was sitting at the aisle seat. I started mildy panicking that I might have to participate and the atmospheric music playing over the speakers which sounded like it was from the chase scene in ... Read the complete review
