New 2006 tour and International Magic Convention

28th November 2005  
  • I haven’t bothered to update for a while now, so let’s see what the old man has been up to…

  • For starters Derren was a special guest at the 34th International Magic Convention where he gave an interview, showed some clips of his new series and did a question and answers session. But less about Derren, I want to talk about Arthur Trace. His presentation of his Sunday piece was brilliant and performance captivating. Are you listening Channel 4/5? Brilliant. I also loved Kostya Kimlet’s competition piece – for me he was the most memorable and is someone I’d like to see more of. Wow, he has a personality, something, for me at least, was not present throughout some of the other routines. Shame he didn’t win. I must admit, however, during the change over time my friend and I were having bets as to whether the next routine to come would be a cups and balls or coin routine. I could have cried. It maybe technically challenging but it’s boring, boring, boring. Right, got that out of my system!

  • Derren has announced the dates for his 2006 tour, however, it must be stressed that this is the same show as he toured with last year. The dates have been directly lifted from Derren’s site, so for visit there for terms, conditions, more accurate information and some sort of albatross subliminal curse that will make you wet the bed during full moons.

  • Derren was busy filming his third series of Trick of the Mind during his West End run and is set to air during about March of next year, to coincide with his national tour.

    There has also been some media coverage of Derren’s fifth… is it his fifth…? special, which will be The Heist and will be probably have something to do with a Derren Brown Motivation group and a bank robbery. Throw in some aspects of Cypher and you may be 5% closer to what may actually be going on… or you could visit here for more information. The Heist is set to air in December.
