Synopsis

Derren Brown is a mentalist — someone who can seemingly read another's mind. Brown seems able to impose his will upon others with little more than a pep talk or a reassuring gesture.

His show certainly is a demonstration of his power of persuasion. It's also a smart send-up of self-help conferences and a debunking of street tricks, frauds and mystical myths.

Brown built his reputation as an amazing mentalist with such mind-blowing setups as:

A random woman answers a ringing pay phone. She listens wordlessly for a couple moments before slumping to the concrete in a deep sleep.

Another stranger is convinced by Brown that the sun has disappeared. Brown protects his cash-stuffed wallet from being pilfered on a busy sidewalk by putting it down and chalking a ring around it.

Pushing psychological buttons most don't even realize exist, Brown opens windows into how our minds really work. And in Mind Control with Derren Brown, he reveals just enough of his secrets to further intrigue audiences.
