We are fans of Derren Brown. He shows the power of hypnosis, augmented by showmanship and traditional magic. He does not try to pretend to be anything he is not, and amazingly his tricks seem mind blowing even when he shows you how he did them!

Derren Brown is never short of entertaining, and usually fascinating too. Keep an eye out for his recent show 'Derren Brown: The System', which promises a horse racing system that guarantees to pick a winner every time. It's a one-off special but has plenty of the normal Derren Brown fun and intrigue. Enjoy :-)
