PREVIEW: Derren Brown Live

Derren Brown returns to Channel 4 this summer with a live stunt and a viewer-voted retrospective.



Celebrating twenty years on Channel 4, the multi-award-winning trickster will surprise one unsuspecting viewer as part of Derren Brown, 20 Years of Mind Control: Live, a dedicated night honouring some of his most jaw-dropping moments on TV. 


The audacious psychological illusionist will perform his latest mind-blowing feat as well as revealing some of the heart-pounding moments of the stunts he has performed over the years. In the two-hour special Derren will  reveal the incredible stories behind each one and talk through the meticulous logistics involved.


Viewers will be able to choose from a shortlist of five of Derren’s favourites and the vote will open in the weeks prior to transmission.

  • Russian Roulette

  • The Heist

  • Hero at 30,000ft

  • Apocalypse

  • Pushed to the Edge

Derren Brown said, “Twenty years! That was quick. And what a treat to be given this night by the broadcaster that have been so very supportive and nurturing over that time. I can’t imagine two decades with anyone else. It’s going to be a fun night.”


The night of programming airs on Sunday 16 August on Channel 4.
