A celebrity in his home country of England, Derren Brown may be the most renowned mentalist/mind reader in the world today.

His live shows have won him two prestigious Olivier Awards – Something Wicked This Way Comes (2006) and Svengali (2012) – and plenty more nominations. He has toured in seven shows since 2003 and been watched by an estimated audience of over one and a half million people.

His most recent shows Infamous (2013, 2014) and Miracle (2015, 2016) have been universally acclaimed by critics and the audience alike and people have flocked from all over the world to be part of Derren’s unique theatrical experience.

Having expanded the genre of magic, Derren’s name has become synonymous with the art of psychological manipulation.

His television shows are must watch events. The shows have garnered rave reviews and coveted awards including the BAFTA for Best Entertainment. His legendary specials include Russian Roulette, Seance, The Heist, Hero at 30,000 Feet, How to Predict the Lottery and Apocalypse.

Most recently in DERREN BROWN: THE PUSH, he exposed the psychological secrets of obedience and social compliance with extraordinary results.

Derren Brown | Mentalist Mind Reader

Derren began his UK television career in December 2000 with a series of specials called Mind Control. In the UK his name is now pretty much synonymous with the art of psychological manipulation. Amongst a varied and notorious TV career.

Derren Brown has played Russian Roulette live, convinced middle-managers to commit armed robbery, led the nation in a séance, stuck viewers at home to their sofas, successfully predicted the National Lottery, motivated a shy man to land a packed passenger plane at 30,000 feet, hypnotised a man to assassinate Stephen Fry, and created a zombie apocalypse for an unsuspecting participant after seemingly ending the world. He has also written several best-selling books and – a first in the history of magic – has toured with eight sell-out one-man stage shows.

The shows have garnered a record-breaking five Olivier Award nominations for Best Entertainment, and won twice. This means Derren Brown has had the largest number of nominations and wins for one-person shows in the history of the Awards.

His 2017 US debut show SECRET won the New York Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience and returned for a sell-out run on Broadway in 2019.

He does not have magical powers or psychic ability, and neither does he ever use stooges or plants to achieve his work. The unwitting participants on his TV projects are entirely genuine (and entirely unwitting).

At home, Derren Brown is a quiet 50-year old who paints, collects taxidermy, and keeps two (real) dogs and a parrot. He dislikes mushrooms and blue cheese, can’t drive, and wishes he could play the piano.
