So what do you guys make of Derren Brown? I think he is absolutely brilliant, i'm just sorry i' have'nt been to a stage show yet. How do you reckon he really does it? Thought suggestion, manipulation, psychic, magic, a combination of everything. I think he is just brilliant at thought manipulation. Did you see when he 'took on a casino' ? That was so disappointing. He is undoutably unique.Maybe years of 'studying'.
