Iain:

Thanks for referring the article to us. A good read, and useful to be reminded to engage people with the process and not make it just about the reveal.

As a longtime Café member--and the author of the article--I was going to post this, but I'm glad to see that Iain beat me to it. For more fascinating insights from Derren, you might enjoy listening to my interview with him from last year's New Yorker Festival: https://www.newyorker.com/podcast/the-ne......en-brown

Adam, that was a fantastically written article, just had to tell you! Even though I'm close by, it's tough for me to get into the city with my schedule but I hope to see the show before the run ends.

Thank you, Glenn! And if mentalism is your thing--and you've never seen Derren live--I urge you to do everything you can to make it to his show.

Thank you for sharing this!

I saw him off Broadway 2 years ago and Derren was sensational and it was a master class of powerful simplicity.

Thank you for posting that podcast, @adgnyc! I’m a longtime fan & going to see Secret in NYC next month so I loved the insights in the article.

The article was quite good, Adam.

The New Yorker rarely swings and misses, but as a long time fan of Derren Brown, I was worried that an article might not do him justice. My worry was not justified.

You do a great job writing as was to be expected, but you also understood Derren as a magician and performer. I linked to it on my Facebook page to show my friends what originally interested me in magic.

Good work!
