Derren Brown

Derren Brown is a mind-reader, a hypnotist, a psychological illusionist, and an author. His performances are part magic, part psychological meddling, and they’re also about the stories we tell ourselves and each other. His art is to get inside our heads and create a sense of possibility and wonder. His shows and television specials have mystified audiences all over the world.

Debbie talks to Derren Brown about his risky stage performances as a mentalist and illusionist. “The strange thing is I build failure into the show. It’s like a juggler will drop a ball on purpose to remind you that it’s difficult, otherwise you start to glaze over.”
