His latest show sees him climb to artistic heights rarely, if ever, achieved by any other legends of the magical arts…Derren Brown, you put Merlin to shame!”
“Visual wizardry to blow even the most cynical of minds”
WHAT’S ON STAGE
“Utterly baffling and completely extraordinary…
You must just marvel and wonder at it all”
Derren began his UK television career in December 2000 with a series of specials called Mind Control. Since redefining the genre of magic for intelligent, modern audiences, he has become synonymous with the art of psychological manipulation. His TV shows have become must-see events. Amongst a varied and notorious career, Derren has played Russian Roulette on live television, convinced middle-managers to commit an armed robbery in the street, led the nation in a seance, stuck viewers to their sofas, successfully predicted the National Lottery, motivated a shy man to land a packed passenger plane at 30,000 feet, exposed psychic and faith-healing charlatans, and hypnotised a man to assassinate Stephen Fry. On top of this he tours the UK every year with a sell-out stage show.
At home, Derren is a quiet 41-year old who paints, keeps a parrot and enjoys Bach. He dislikes mushrooms and blue cheese, and wishes he could play the piano.
Derren is the patron of The Parrot Zoo near Skegness and has kept four parrot: two Conures named Siegfried and Figaro, a Senegal called Mephisto and currently Rasputin, a Blue Quaker.
The Parrot Zoo benefits tremendously from charity submissions which you can make, or if you would like to sponsor a parrot yourself they run the Sponsapoll Scheme which lets you sponsor any parrot at the Zoo. If you don’t know the type of parrot you want to sponsor you can choose from their ‘Parrot of the Week’ listings.
