Derren Brown (born 27 February 1971) is an English mentalist and illusionist. Since his television debut with Derren Brown: Mind Control in 2000, he has produced several other shows for the stage and television in both series and specials. He has also written books for magicians as well as the general public. Brown does not claim to possess any supernatural powers and his acts are often designed to expose the methods of those who do, such as faith healers and mediums. In his performances he often expresses that his effects are achieved through “magic, suggestion, psychology, misdirection and showmanship”.
Trick My What? - Personal life - Netflix
Brown came out as gay in 2007, and is in a long term relationship with a designer. He came out late in life—his parents were not practising Christians, but they sent him to Bible classes from age 5, believing it was the right thing to do. In an effort to deal with issues of self-esteem and sexuality, Brown became a committed Evangelical Christian in his teens in order to present a confident, asexual, character. By his twenties he had decided that his belief in Christianity had no basis, and became a committed atheist. He turned to the character of the eccentric, caped magician to fulfil the role. Since 2004, Brown has been the patron of the registered charity the Parrot Zoo Trust in Friskney, Lincolnshire. In an interview with LeftLion magazine, he said, “I'm a big fan of parrots – I think they're fascinating creatures. Many of them live for longer than us humans and it's interesting to me the way they learn to mimic human voices even though they don't really comprehend what they're saying.”
