Everytime I see his shows I am mindfucked.




I remember he did one a while ago where at the end they interviewed people and asked them what their favourite part was, but they couldnt remember anything about the show. I laughed at them and then slowly realised... fuck, what did he do? All I could remember was a vague something about the train schedule or something.

do you reckon everyone in that audience had to pre-book tickets online? that'd mean his researchers could have had the seat numbers, date of birth, hometown, email address (& anything googling it came up with) and various other shite about them all. he's got a mental nack for remembering things...

the numbers stuff at the end was just ridiculous though, voodoo magic!

Saw him in norwich about a year ago and he actually did this to a few people in the crowd was brilliant. he showed us all this film and only certain people in the audience were affected by it and suddenly felt the urge to run up on stage, something to do with putting seat numbers in the film!?

I reckon he has to pick who he does this stuff on carefully. I saw one when he just went out into the streets of new york with obvious looking fake money trying to buy stuff. He said he was nervous beforehand because he didn't have a clue who he was going to talk to. Its worked on the majority of people but one guy just told him to fuck off :lol:

read a theory the other day that apparently a stooge picks up about 20 envelopes during the interval for derren to look at and memorise?
it would make sense...

I think he has certain tricks that he does and uses the whole NLP aspect as a mis-direction.

No. He's a tnuc and his technique can be very obvious.
