Derren Brown: Enigma
1 August 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is the third live performance they televised with the very clever and smartly dressed entertainer Derren Brown, he is a wonderful magician, illusionist and mentalist. The show show opens with people listing three favourite things, and with an audience member calling out random words he manages to identify what someone wrote down, including a number reference for a dictionary, page number, column and paragraph. He plays a game of Guess Whom (similar to the board game Guess Who), to identify members of the audience who had their photo taken, and one guy named Stewie gets a joke about his big beard, and Derren does a fantastic quick impression of Stewie Griffin from Family Guy. Then he talks about a box belonging to his grandfather he always wanted to open, and he invites a member of the audience to open it, unwrap the ball of string, and is shocked to see a coin with the name of her grandmother on it. Next he puts many members of the audience, not covering their eyes and blocking their ears, into a trance, and two are brought up on stage, one stiffened to balanced between two chairs, the other drinking some vinegar without knowing and writing a number that is chosen before by an audience member. Then a curtain cabinet task is done where three audience members come up, all go to sleep, and Derren proves their are spirits, possessing the people, when blindfolded and tied up, to write and do things unintentionally. Finally the game where seven pictures were shown to the audience, and the one random chosen the most is taken out, leaving six left and he identifies where the pictures are placed, and this leads on to an earlier reference to McFly to come into use, where they sing the big mystery, and the Enigma title reason is revealed. Very good!
