New 2009 Tour Dates for Derren?

Earlier this month, iTricks reported that tickets for Derren Brown's 2009 tour were being sold, even though the tour has not been announced.

Then, yesterday's Grimsby Telegraph's announced that Derren will perform in Grimsby May 15-16, 2009. Apparently, local venues have scheduled Derren's tour dates but the full schedule has not been released to the public.

If you want to see DB in person next year, and you know of a local venue where he has performed in the past, you might want to call and see if there are tickets to be had.

You Can Contribute to Derren Brown's Official Website

The news section of Derren's official site recently reported that DB has a new web design team. Hopefully, the new team will give us more frequent news updates, meatier biographical information, and some worthwhile downloads.

DB's assistant, Coops, has also posted a call for content:

[W]e also want user-submitted content so are calling on any of you who know of interesting web articles or research that come under the broad categories of Pseudo-Science, Magic or Psychology to submit them (for approval) to

This is your chance to contribute to the official site's overhaul. If you're wondering what links to submit to DB, I hear they have an excellent magic-themed website at

We Predicted It: Derren Brown and Joan Rivers

The July 8, 2008 post on AboutDerrenBrown -- entitled "Derren Brown and Joan Rivers, together at last?" -- was meant as joke, not a suggestion.

But check out, to see a photo of Derren Brown with Joan Rivers last night at the opening of Ms. Rivers' new show.

As you will recall from the prior entry, a PR agency called Clout Communications now represents both Derren Brown and Joan Rivers. I was hoping Clout would have the good sense to keep the two separate.

What's next? Joan Rivers cameos in Trick or Treat 3?

Derren Brown Meets "Cat Man"

According to the gossip pages, Derren was at the opening a Ripley's Believe It Or Not in Piccadilly last night: spotted Mica Paris and Michelle Gayle enjoying the free bar and convincing the barman to add more gin to their cocktails, while Derren Brown attempted to play mind games on guests.

It sounds like Derren was performing close-up magic.

Also in attendance were "Cat Man" and "Lizardman," billed as "the world's most modified men" (they have lots of tattoos).
