Derren Brown gave his first-ever TED talk in April this year, at TED2019 in the Vancouver Convention Centre, Canada.

“Magic is a great analogy for how we edit reality and form a story — and then mistake that story for the truth,” Derren told a packed-out audience, in ‘Mentalism, mind reading and the art of getting inside your head’ – a talk which explores the seductive appeal of finding simple answers to life’s complex and subtle questions.
