    Derren Brown

    I went to see Derren Brown yesterday and I am totally amazed at some of his tricks, has anyone else seen him? If so, can you explain how he does them?
    Many Thanks

    That's the one.
    He is one skilled and clever guy!!!:thumbsup:

    I reccomend getting his book. It explains how he does a lot of things and even teaches you some of it. His memory improving trick is particularly good

    Here's an ebook on how to do some of his tricks:

    It'd be strange being married to him.
    He would use his powers of psychology and suggestion to get her to do whatever he wants!!!!

    ...and not remember in the morning! ;-)

    went to derren brown's show at the west end/covent garden (comp tix courtesy of his director!) a couple years ago it was fab live!

    a friend of mine used to be at uni with him and he would always be 'performing' tricks with friends, they're just used to him ..

    Derren Brown is really what got me into the whole "hypnosis" thing and as a result i can honestly say i know how to do about 80% of the things he does. I know, i'm amazing! I seen him on tour in 2004 but i haven't seen this one (yet). I even met him once at the stage door to where i went to see him and he signed a book for me. It was one of his that's now out of print and quite rare and i got £80 for it on eBay. Still got the signed program. Here's photographic evidence that i met Luke Skywalker......i mean Derren Brown himself.

    In that case, explain to me how he can look at a sealed envelope with just initials on and be able to read the question inside and tell them their name, age, date of birth and day they were born, if you can explain, i will pay to come and watch you!!!:whistling:

    I can't tell you that. Bearing in mind that these are the kind of things i do with my friends, i don't want the secrets getting out, especially because there's every chance one of my mates will read this thread. Then the magic's gone.

    "Magic" is boring and for sissies and people who are only "tricking" you, aka: liars. ;-)

    This is "psychological illusion" meaning that what you see happening is usually what is actually happening, it's the method of how it's done that's unknown. Someone pulls a rabbit out of a hat then you know it was really already there, just concealed the whole time but with this stuff, if you make someone forget their own name (one of my own personal favourites) then that really happens.

    remember everyone anyone can do what he does if we all knew how, its all tricks nothing else and deffo not powers.
