Derren Brown returns with a daring live stunt to celebrate a night dedicated to his most memorable moments
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.
From headline-grabbing moments like Russian Roulette Live and correctly predicting the National Lottery result, to hypnotising a member of the public into attempting to assassinate Stephen Fry, this celebratory night will have viewers stuck to their sofas – again. Immediately after the show, Derren will also introduce the nation’s favourite Derren Brown special, as voted by viewers.
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.

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.”
