Below are some details of the products Derren has released to the general public.
After Derren's highly successful Mind Control series and specials, Inside Your Mind was released to the general public on DVD and VHS.
Inside Your Mind includes 13 clips from the Mind Control series and the DVD also includes an audio commentary, interview with Derren, unseen sequences including a 'how I do it' section from Derren, extracts from The 50 Greatest Magic Tricks, links from E4 Mind Control Night and trailers. It's a good DVD - buy it!
Derren's second DVD, Trick of the Mind has also been released and has material from the first series of the same title. I could give you a review of the DVD, but when I ventured into HMV Derren's DVD was sitting next to The Naked Pilgrim - Road To Santiago and we all know which one I bought. If you have more self control in your little finger, I suggest you buy it - apparently there are funny, unseen clips.
Derren's second DVD must have been a success because he released a sequel of it, aptly named Trick of the Mind 2. Go Derren for coming up with that title. He must have thought long and hard over that one.
The DVD features some of the effects from the second series of Tick of the Mind... oh, so that's where the name came from. In this series, Derren takes his unique show out into the regions where dark stunts abound, such as a zombie arcade game equipped with subliminal messaging, which transports a young lad to a real-life version of the game. This DVD includes celebrity appearances by Jonathan and Jane Ross, Simon Pegg, Mo Mowlam, Iain Banks, Richard Madeley and Alistair McGowan, says Amazon. There's also some voice overs and unseen stuff - the usual stuff that you never actually watch but buy the DVD for.
If you wish to see Derren eating a stick of rock in Blackpool, zombies and celebrities getting freaked out, hop over to Amazon.
To be released in May 2008 is Derren Brown: Something Wicked This Way Comes, which is a recording of his second tour of the live show with the same name, which was re-staged at the Old Vic Theatre. The show was awarded the Olivier Award in the Best Entertainment category - a great achievement for all those involved with the show.
Derren, the Cheaky Chappie, experiments with pain, apparent sumliminal imagery, magic and the usual showmanship. To pre-order - or buy seeing as I'll probably forget I typed this in months/years to come - click-ums here.
Whilst the ever-popular books umoungst magicians - Pure Effect and Absolute Magic remain as such, Derren decided that he'd be a good man and release a book for the general public that didn't tell you not to wear silly ties and waistcoats, to always think of your audience or to practice, practice lying: 'no the sponge rabbit did just disappear'. Instead this book reveals secrets that magican reveal - the 'not the secret or method' - has rants about religion and paranormal, and stuff about lying and is esentially a whistle-stop tour of magic. If you wish to purchase Derren's more than likely last book, click here.
One day there may be a box set released which would feature all Derren's broadcast specials. However, I can't see this happening in the near future - I can't even be bothered to buy the latest DVD so would there really be a national call for another DVD? Or maybe I'm underestimating the size and tenacity Derren's obsessive fan-base.
