A truly unique artist, Derren’s regular act is, 45 – 50 minutes of mind-reading and psychological manipulation, full of audience participation and sharp humour.
He will begin by making the whole audience stand and works with them as a whole, whittling them down through a psychological game to the least malleable of the group. Starting with one of these ‘challengers’, he then chooses his volunteers on an individual basis as he goes along (Derren will always check first with the client in case any guests would be inappropriate to call up).
The first volunteer forms the framework of the show, as she gambles light-heartedly in a game of wits with Derren throughout the act and tries to win a sizeable chunk of money. Volunteers are invited onto his stage to experience his ‘mind-reading’ and a series of stunning games and displays. He does not hypnotise them, yet the show is a jaw-dropping display of influence and unconscious control – a sort of psychological magic show.
The finish is a high-energy and hugely surprising finale using a random guest from the back of the room. The precise content of the show will vary from show to show, depending on Derren’s volunteers, but he is charming, funny and respectful; as well as being a very talented performer who ensures the audience are left amazed and with lots to eagerly talk about. Obviously we’ll do our best to answer any specific questions you may have.
