Derren Brown originally planned to become a lawyer. He was studying law and German at Bristol University when he witnessed a hypnosis show by Martin Taylor. Ultimately, this was the stimulus that inspired him to choose a new career as a magician, hypnotist, and mentalist. Afterward, Derren Brown started performing stage shows at the university and close-up magic at local bars and restaurants.

Television Specials

In 2000, Derren launched his first show, Mind Control. It was an instant success: revolutionizing the art of mentalism to a whole new concept of exciting and popular entertainment. Having expanded the genre of magic, Derren’s name has become synonymous with the art of psychological manipulation. His television shows have garnered rave reviews and coveted awards including the BAFTA for Best Entertainment. His legendary specials include Russian RouletteSeanceThe HeistHero at 30,000 FeetHow 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.

Award-Winning Live Shows

However, Derren Brown didn’t become one of the most renowned mentalists and mind readers in the world with just TV specials. Since 2005, he has toured with eight sell-out one-man stage shows. The shows have garnered a record-breaking five Olivier Award nominations for Best Entertainment – Britain’s most prestigious honor for stage shows. Even more, he won twice. His first Olivier Award came for Something Wicked This Way Comes in 2006 his second for Svengali in 2012. This means Derren has had the largest number of nominations and wins for one-person shows in the history of the Awards. Additionally, 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.

Hire Derren Brown

Derren openly confirms that he does not possess any supernatural or magical powers. However, his performances often expose the methods of those who do, such as faith healers and psychic mediums. Further, he never uses stooges or plants to achieve his work. The participants in his TV projects and live performances are entirely genuine and unwitting. Derren makes it very clear that his performances are simply demonstrations using psychology. intuition, hypnosis, interpretation of body language, and the power of suggestion. He also utilizes the magician’s traditional tools of misdirection, sleight of hand, cold reading, and showmanship. Organizations that hire Derren Brown will get a unique performance of psychological illusion that none can imitate.

Client Testimony for Derren Brown


Happy Why More or Less Everything is Absolutely Fine Book Cover
Happy: Why More or Less Everything is Absolutely Fine

Everyone says they want to be happy. But that's much more easily said than done. What does being happy actually mean? And how do you even know when you feel it?

In Happy Derren Brown explores changing concepts of happiness - from the surprisingly modern wisdom of the Stoics and Epicureans in classical times right up until today, when the self-help industry has attempted to claim happiness as its own. He shows how many of self-help’s suggested routes to happiness and success – such as positive thinking, self-belief and setting goals – can be disastrous to follow and, indeed, actually cause anxiety.

Happy aims to reclaim happiness and to enable us to appreciate the good things in life, in all their transient glory. By taking control of the stories we tell ourselves, by remembering that ‘everything’s fine’ even when it might not feel that way, we can allow ourselves to flourish and to live more happily.
