One of a kind
12 May 2004 | by darwiniantheorySee all my reviews

Long gone are the days of Paul daniels and having to watch people bring things out of hats and confound us with yet another card trick.

The last BIG mentalist on our screens was the ever STRANGE looking Max Mavern, so thank god for Derren who is bringing back a little class to the genre again.. with hardly a TRICK of the CARDS in sight.

Also Derren is an accomplished artist, so check his work out.

If your fed up with the tacky magic that you normally see and are fed up with waiting for David Copperfield to accidently float into a rotating fan in the air conditioning on a milllion dollar stage and actually want to be inpressed, I advise you see Derrens work on dvd or on tv.. LIVE if you can.
