RUSSIAN
ROULETTE

In a secret location, a member of the public chosen from a nationwide search, loads a revolver with a real bullet. Derren takes the gun and plays Russian Roulette on live television. Derren’s first major stunt remains his most notorious: it sparked nationwide controversy and endless speculation as to how it was achieved.

Derren Brown: Russian Roulette was nominated for the Rose d’Or Arts & Specials Award in 2004.

“Though none of us would say we wanted Derren Brown to die, we have been resentful of the suggestion he might not…that he wasn’t really risking his life. I believe Brown really did play Russian Roulette and the fact that we tuned into Channel 4 in case it went wrong disturbs me a little. But it was compelling television.”

– London Evening Standard


“Tension, fear, excitement, horror, relief, joy, admiration. Rarely have I felt all these emotions within the space of one hour’s television viewing. But Derren Brown Plays Russian Roulette Live did just that…so does this make Derren Brown a liar? A conman? A cheat? A fake? No, it’s makes him a genius.”
