Derren Brown - Mind Reader - Live show

Seen live at Grimsby 7th March.

Love his TV shows and really enjoyed his book.

Entertainment and enlightenment.

This show has an emphasis on mentalism and includes Derren's refreshingly open approach to the subject i.e. he doesn't believe it and does his show using tricks. He actually said at one point that he thought mediums should be locked up for defrauding people.

We get explorations of change blindness, the inability of humans to see what is right in front of them and his usual cutting humour.

Nothing scary or shocking in this show, but depressingly large numbers of utterly impossible feats which seem totally beyond any rational explanation.

Go see him and go buy his book.
