Derren Brown will bring another live stunt to our screens as part of a televised celebration of his 20 year partnership with Channel 4.
The two hour special, Derren Brown, 20 Years of Mind Control: Live, will showcase some of the illusionist’s most hair-raising stunts, revealing the stories and logistical secrets behind each one.
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.”
Viewers will also be asked to vote for their favourite stunt from Brown’s own shortlist of five, including the controversial Russian Roulette Live, and Pushed to the Edge, in which a member of the public was persuaded to push someone to their death.
Tom Beck, Head of Live Events and Commissioning Editor for Entertainment at Channel 4 added: “His body of work over the last 20 years is unparalleled in its range, ambition and sheer entertainment value.
“We’re proud to have been his home for two decades and I’m very excited – and mildly terrified – to see how he’s planning to celebrate.”
