Skepticism?
4 July 2018 | by dwankanSee all my reviews

In this very staged "live" performance, Derren Brown claims to be a skeptic, bad-mouths faith healing, rattles off what I assume are jokes, and performs what actually amounts to faith healing himself. I really hope the people he "healed" were plants because if they were credulous audience members, he played a very mean trick on them in convincing them that he had cured their ailments. Unfortunately, the tricks were old cliches, the humor fell flat, mostly because you couldn't keep up with the nonsense he was babbling, and the claim of skepticism was tainted by his "if you believe it, it's true" presentation. No. If it isn't true, it isn't true, no matter what you believe, and this hack is lying to you.
