TV Magicians and Their Off The Shelf Tricks
In this post, we break down my favourite Derren Brown routine, and look at why the best magicians are more than happy to put their own take on shop-bought tricks.
This is one of my favourite Derren clips…
I remember watching the routine as a teen and being utterly delighted. I knew the secrets behind the routine because I’d seen all three tricks on the shelf in a magic shop. I was overjoyed and overcome with amazement seeing just how masterfully Derren and his team of writers were able to craft three simple tricks into a brilliantly original five-minute performance.
