The lowry June 12th 2010

I can't remember how many times i have seen Derren live, but i have certainly been following him since the beginning, and whilst I can see where he is going with his illusions/stunts/tricks, how he gets there still takes my breath away. And at his request I can not talk about what the show contained, and it did contain a few suprises that had me dumbfounded, but oh he oozes charisma and more. A perfect showman. OK some of the moments of 'oh it's goen wrong' don't wash, as you know he will come back to that with a double whammy later, but the show is so well constructed and a pleasure to witness, and he is so charming and seemingly enjoying himself, even though this show has been on tour for over a year. And boy is he good with names.
If you get the chance to see him live, do. And check out his paintings. I'm not sure Spitting Image was this twisted or observant.
