Hi Derren,

I have the most brilliant idea for a show.
It 100% cannot be faked, it’s never been done before and it will shock!
I obviously cannot write it on here as it will spoil everything.

I will just say……. No one can pretend to be in pain (Not a pain in a cruel way)

Please get in touch I promise you, you will love it!!!!
P.s. time is of a big bigissue!!’

Hi Derren, i think you are amazing.. the lessons that you teach us is more than any religion could. I hope to have the opportunity to meet you one day – i think you are amazing!

Lauren Forbes says:

Your psychological prowess and power are stunning! The human mind is such a pliable, dynamic organ- and you have learned how to exploit the deepest corridors. I would highly encourage you to come tour the US with your show, as I think the people in America need to see the reality behind psychics/mediums/the paranormal/religion. You truly are the epitome of an enigma-bravo!

Your series of Experiments is currently airing on tv…. I’ve never seen them before and I have to say as with pretty much all your work, they’re prettty freaky!!!!……. The fake game show episode was actually quite sad… To see a group of intelligent, free thinking adults, reduced to an aggressive mob of sheep almost ( strange word I know!!!), it saddened me that the majority of the group had reduced themselves to that whilst a minority actually went against the crowd and thought for themselves.
I found it very amusing at the end when it was revealed that the audience were actually the experiment and what the purpose of the experiment was, that alot them looked shocked and angry that this had been done to them…….. They were very happy to make that poor guy’s night a misery, and to laugh and cheer when his property was being trashed, but when their actions were revealed to them, they looked as though Derren was the one in the wrong……… Silly people 😀
The show that was aired on Saturday, setting up the young man so he would eventually be guilt tripped into confessing to a murder he didn’t commit, that was one of the few shows of Derrens where he actually looked quite worried…..
It’s interesting to see just how easily and with how little effort a person can be manipulated into thinking they have done something wrong.
What interested me the most was Derren’s reaction at the end when the young man disappeared off the property…. He actually looked worried until it was discovered that he’d gone to confess……
I wonder Mr B has there ever been a time when you’ve had concerns that you’ve pushed it too far, or is there anything that you actually would point blank refuse to do????

Looks like I’m a little late to the party.

There go plans for a few DB presents this Christmas! 🙁

All my dearest wishes to you Derren and all your little helpers,THANK you for four very entertaining fridays(what on earth are we going to do from now on,on a friday?)I must confess,my first assosiation when viewing APOCALYPSE was actually not “the wizard of o z”but “a christmas carol”,was there a reason for not having a TOTO in your story? I love everything “fairy tale”,being in my early forties doesn’t stop me from doing so either.Well now you ;ve given us your version of “w.o.o.” you MUST do “Alice”(im wonderland,behind the looking glass)you can’t do one without doing the other,life wouldn’t be worth living…may I also say THANK YOU?For all I have learned from watching you on tv,reading your books ect,I used to be a wallflower,whenever I tried to be “brave”doing something to get noticed,it usually went horribly wrong,These days I question things,I have copletly new theories and a very changed outlook on life.People take me serious now,even seek my advise at times,I’m still having the reputation of being an “odd-ball”but I can live with that.I even want to change my name and planning of having a tattoo(an unusual one for nobody to see ,of course)things I would have not ever done in the past.THANK YOU millions,countless times!I so wish,I could give you something in return,I really wish.I could crochet you a cuddle blanket maybe,I taught myself to crocht,see-something else I would have never tried in my dreams.It wasn’t a very good year for me so I’m actually glad to start a new one,soon.Work,hose,relationship,some health problems too…but I try to remind myself of those who suffer a lot more,who have less of a good life than myself.My two Daughters are doing fine ther is nothing more important than those two lovely girls.And anyway,whatever I have learned from you,or things you have led me to,Derren I would not ever change it , not for the most pefect life on earth.I mean that,THANK YOU and a blizzard of blessings for the worlds sweetest wizard

*sad face* oh well…
Can I just say that you are the most incredible human being ever, Derren. I absolutely love your character, sense of humour, skill and sense of morality. I wish I could be one of the people that get to meet you in person, and I wish I was 18 and not 12, so I could audition for one of your programmes. Just being in the presence of man like you would do so much for me. Just watching your programmes sends me in to a state of complete blind awe, and in come cases, fear of the vunerability of the human mind. I know you will probably never read this, but you are amazing and I love you. I only wish that my parents didn’t blame you for my current condition, and let me watch more of your fantastic programmes. Love K8 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx <3

And you have a beard like Satan. It’s really cute. You look a bit like my drama teacher, but without the spiky hair. <3. *huggie* Love K8 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx P.S. if you ever read this, Mr. Awesome (Derren), please reply through this comments blobby bit. I just want to know that you really aren't just a dream.

K8 says:

Derren Brown, you are a miracle. You teach us all so much. Thank you for being in my life.

I know you probably won’t read this, but could you do a special on correcting a bully. Like helping them to realise that it hurts to be in the victim’s position. I have no ideas how to, but you could think of something. After all, you’ve had so many great ideas before.

Thanks again,

K8 xoxoxox

P.S. If you use this idea, please let me know that it as indeed my idea by somehow dropping the word ‘benevolence’ in one of the parts you say.

Please do a show on the effects of childhood trauma! It would be amazing to watch somebody’s life being restored to the bliss of before an experience.

Love you!

sadun says:

this is a “bit” irrelevant but commenting here seemed like the easiest way to communicate. I just wondered what it would be like if Derren were the Ministry of Education? or even God maybe? hypothetical… I mean hes aware of many problems with society/culture etc. so i thought it would be interesting to get to know Derren’s utopia(s).. No?

At least I would love to read sth like an advice for activists/revolutionaries in general.. I would also love to talk to him in person too actually about.. many things.. Im from turkey and hope to do things to influence the popular culture in a way to make things better in general. Currently working on a book-thing (in the form of a children’s book) that questions all taboos and language in general, from a psychedelic transcendent perspective really.. already learned a lot from watching/reading Derren over the years, but wouldnt mind learning more.. 🙂 cheers

Hello Derren,

Recently I watched your program in which you paid a visit to American couple and the woman was a writer. She wrote books on UFOs. I would be very grateful if you could let me know her name. I am very interested in the subject.

I had a dream that on my yard a UFO landed but when I woke up, they had already gone

What box? Are you all hypnotised!
Hi Darren. I liked to believe in paranormal, alliens, angels, life after death, it’s comforting to be able to have hope in something else, yet intriguing. You dissected it all to a bare scientific explanation, it’s all about suggestion and our uncounscious ability to respond to suggestion. As an engineer I like when everything is explained rationally, but on the other hand it’s a pitty that the magic is not really magic, but hard work, method and undisputable tallent and gift. However, if I would like to persist on the idea of magic I might say that you are maybe one of a kind, a Doctor Magic, with special powers. Certaintly unique. Do you take students?
Are you going to learn playing piano in 2013? You just need to find the time for.

scratch meal tomorrow to celebrate. And as excited as I am for my FIRST EVER YULE, I’m also feeling a little lonely. My family does not know that I am Wiccan, and so I cannot share this holiday with them, or even let them know what I am doing to celebrate. I don’t see imagery relating to my holiday in places such as storefronts or in the media. I hope that this will change someday. Until then, I need to focus on how much I’ve grown and learned this year, because although I will be celebrating this holiday alone, I have gained the presence of the God and Goddess in my life.

Derren- Thank you so much for the time and energy it took to produce your many eye opening programs. I have used them in bible studies here in the US to help Christians see the false teachers for who they are. Thank you again, and I can’t wait till you arrive in the US!!

I wanted to comment on the Testing Psychics thread, but couldn’t figure out how… maybe you could move this comment to that thread?

I watched Fear & Faith online tonight for the first time, and loved it! I loved how Derren Brown explained religious experiences and induced a woman to have one. I was wondering if he could explain psychic experiences as well? I haven’t seen all his shows (sadly) so if he has already I’d love a link to it. I know he’s had participants “read his mind” before but I was wondering if he’s ever explained how psychic experiences work for people who believe they’ve had them.

I ask because I believe I’ve had them, and I would love a scientific / logical explanation for it. I’ve tried to dispel the experiences I’ve had, but cannot. I take no joy in it and would love to never have another one, but I do not understand it and cannot control it or stop it from happening. I feel if I knew why it happens, I could stop it. I’m not joking at all… I’m asking for help. Thanks.

I love watching Derren Brown. He clearly enjoys helping people, and I would love a logical explanation. It would help me. Thanks again.
