About This Show

From March 27 to August 2, 2020, Derren Brown, the popular multi-award winning master of mind control and illusion, will be touring the UK with SHOWMAN, his first new live show for five years.

The content of Showman currently remains a closely-guarded secret but Derren said today:

“All I can reveal is that the show will ultimately be about you, the audience member, because that’s what I find most interesting. There are some places I’d like to take the audience where we haven’t been before, and I always aim to have it deliver more than you’d expect. I’m excited to be at the starting point of that process. Getting it on the road will be my favourite part of the year.”

Tickets will be on sale from Thurs April 25 at www.derrenbrown.co.uk but check individual venues as booking dates will vary.

Derren’s live shows have won him two prestigious Olivier Awards – for Something Wicked This Way Comes (2006) and Svengali (2012) and he has received more Olivier nominations and wins than any other one-man show in theatre history. He has played to sold-out houses across the country every year since 2003 to over 1.6M people. Previous shows, Infamous, (2013, 2014), Miracle (2015, 2016) and Underground (2017, 2018) have also enjoyed critically acclaimed seasons in London’s West End. In 2017 he made an award-winning US stage debut at the Atlantic Theater in New York with Derren Brown: Secret and discussions for a Broadway run are ongoing.
