Derren Brown

Brown began his career as a hypnotist but shifted into mentalism and has now authored several books on the subject. Popular throughout the U.K. for hosting the TV series "Trick of the Mind," the British-born 44-year-old also made quick cameos (now you see him, now you don’t!) in the popular PBS “Sherlock” series as well as the BBC’s “Doctor Who.” Oh, and don't forget that he's the patron of a parrot zoo, and he successfully predicted a winning lottery number. Starting in November, he's taking up residency at the Palace Theatre in London for three months before taking the stage show on the road throughout the United Kingdom.
