“What Mr. Brown does is find or impose patterns within or on the chaotic whirl of life, making an immense and varied group of people feel, if only for a moment, ineffably connected.”
— Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“There’s a depth of intelligence…a relish for the poetical and the philosophical too – that easily stands comparison with the finest drama.”
— Dominic Cavendish, The Telegraph

I was trying to figure out how to travel to the U.K. to see you but now it’s just a short 6 hour flight from the west coast to NY. Sooo happy 😊 I knew this would be a lucky revelation because my horoscope said something about a full moon that was in some hemisphere of some upper delta triad. No, not really but I do feel all the luck of getting to see you. No full moons necessary.

I don’t believe that the universe is a catalog from which we order wish powered products but I have wished you would come to the US, and it does feel fortunate. Can’t wait to see you!

I just booked the super fan tickets for New York City. i am so excited to see Derren perform his show. I have been following Derren for years and have nearly everyone of his books. A true master of his craft. Thanks for coming to the United States.

Hello Derren,on the begining I would like to sorry for my english. Finally I found something, how I can send You a message. 5 or 6 years ago I was on Your show Svengali in the Blackpool.
I’m sad because You didn’t came out, but I understand that it is not easy to do this show. I’m Your big fan from the Czech Republic and Your show was realy amazing and once I would like to meet You, shake your hand and get a photo with You and I wonder if You can read or control mind of somebody, who doesn’t understand to english well.
Finally I would like to thank You so much, because thanks to You I’m interesting in the psychology and everything You are doing is interesting, amazing, funny and unbeliveble.Once more thank’s a lot for the best show that I ever saw and I wish You just the best and I hope for any reply. Sincerely Tomas O.

Last night, I went to Derren’s show at Atlantic Theatre. Despite the obvious futility of the venture, it’s difficult not to be completely in love with him.

Angela Farmer says:

I went to see Derren in New York. The intimate setting of the theater makes his connection to the audience all the more engaging but beware of possible side effects. Side effects include but are not limited to thinking about him constantly, trying to get him to become my BFF, and seriously considering spending money I don’t have to fly to New York to see him again.

Wow, I just saw Derren on Friday in New York! He was amazing.

Seeing him in person is so much better than just having watched him on DVD (and a few YouTube videos). The energy in the room was electric. We were all just spellbound.

I’ll probably sneak another trip in to see him again.

Derren, I hope you come to New York again.

I saw Derren’s performance last night and wanted to say how grateful I am to him. Not only did he put on a very substantial and entertaining show, but was immensely gracious afterwards as well. Even though it was announced that he would not be signing, I was one of a few hopefuls who stuck around anyway. When Derren did come up the stairs, it was clear that he was in a bit of a rush, and yet he was so kind to each of us who waited there. Even though he spent only a few minutes with us, it felt like he really tried to make a genuine connection with each of us and truly appreciated us for coming to see him. It was an experience I’ll treasure for the rest of my life. Thank you so much Derren!

Just got back to Phoenix AZ from a trip to New York City to see Derren Browns Secret. I told my wife and two children “lets go to NYC for our vacation.” So we did.

I saw Derrens show “Secret” two times while I was there. I was amazed and baffled by his performance each time and I am no more closer to figuring out how he does what he does.

I would fly back to see the show again in a heartbeat when time and money permit.
Thanks Derren…I also red the book “Happy” and I like the message in it. Brilliant.

I would love to see Derren’s assessment of the work of Gregg Braden. Derren has cured me of a lot of gullibility for supernatural and pseudo science with his excellent book ‘Tricks of the Mind. I also met him when he was filming at Craigmillar Castle in Edinburgh where i was the manager and he cured me of a lot of my spooky nonsense in the most polite and charming way. But I am still susceptible to the work of Gregg Braden- as are many others! I would love to see a good natured review by Derren of Gregg!

Any US dates for 2018? I’m going to be stuck in Detroit working until August / September and not sure if I will make the tour dates in Sarthend or not. 🙁
