Derren Brown: the Event

current mood: curious

The latest Derren Brown tv series is looking more and more interesting the deeper I look into it.

Looks like we'll be having two shows each week, with the Wednesday night one being a short ten minute live show where he'll pull off some kind of stupendous illusion, and then explain how he did it on the longer Friday night show.

Interested? The current (also intriguing) TV advert can be found here, and the two websites featured in the background can be located here:

I went to one of his preview shows in a theatre in Chatham. Some of the tricks you could see how it worked, others left me completely baffled!

I think the howdunnit part is what I'm most interested in seeing - just hope he does explain everything!

Oh, the tantalising Mr Brown.

I regarded him as 100% force for good (love The System, especially). And then a friend told me her father (a serious businessman) believes Deren Brown is magic. Actually magic. Even though he constantly tells us it's all trickery and psychology.

That, apparently, is the most cunning trick of all.

*boggle*

Apparently this week he's going to predict the National Lottery numbers just before they're pulled out live on BBC1. *mind-boggle* No wonder he says this is either going to make or break his career.

And must have a word with one or two people I know about Mr Brown and magick then.
