Tour Generates Press for Derren Brown

Derren Brown's Evening of Wonders tour is generating some publicity in the UK. Most of the news coverage is pretty generic (see Norwich Evening News 24 and EDP24), but the New Shopper had a good article last week.

In the New Shopper piece, Derren promises to make some "outrageous claims" in his upcoming Trick or Treat series, refers to his own goatee as "laughable," and acknowledges that magic performances aren't for everyone:

It's easy to explain why someone might not like it. It's [sic] can be poorly presented, surrounded by naffness, and often amounts to little more than childish attempts to fool you.
I guess it's largely to escape those associations that I've gone the route I have.

The new Trick or Treat series is only a month away.

Thanks for the comment! Unfortunately, I have not been able to see Derren on tour.

I am in the U.S., and he has confined his show to the UK so far.

I'm looking forward to the DVD release of his Something Wicked This Way Comes show next month, though...
