This show is fascinatingly mysterious, insanely entertaining, and completely sold out on its first UK outting in 2005.
Channel 4's psychological illusionist Derren Brown is being talked about as someone altogether different and unique. His 'magic' is firmly grounded in the workings of the mind and psychology.
Brown uses the power of suggestion, body language and basic psychology to predict and alter people's behaviour. A showman of Barnum-esque proportions whose charisma, charm and originality have won him many fans, you just have to experience him for yourself to understand this amazing performer.
Whatever you choose to call it, his unparalleled performances amaze and unsettle all those who watch him. This is a powerful and provocative form of entertainment, unlikely to be imitated for a long while.
