It’s been hotly-anticipated since it was first announced many months ago but now the excitement levels are really starting to build for acclaimed illusionist Derren Brown’s performance in the seaside town of Llandudno.
As one of the nation’s most revered performers, Derren Brown has had many years of success and plenty of recognition. His jaw-dropping audience participation events and death-defying stunts like a game of Russian Roulette is just a small selection of the illusionist’s back catalogue. Although there won’t be a loaded gun in sight when he takes to the stage at Venue Cymru on the 15th, 16th and 17th of May, the stakes are still high for an enthralling occasion.
A stripped back show takes all the grandeur away from his televised performances and focuses on a more personal show from the esteemed performer in Infamous: his sixth show since 2003. Any fans of cult television series Dead Set and Campus will be delighted to know that long-term collaborator of Brown, Andy Nyman, will be joining the dark magician on stage once more.
Of the reunion, Derren has said: “Now we’ve joined forces again, we’re very eager to make this show feel different. There was something of a template we followed with all the shows, which worked very well. It’s rather exciting and scary leaving that behind. This one should certainly have a different tone, and will mix things up a bit for those who have seen the others on TV or live.”
Derren Brown is a tireless performer and has even been quoted as saying that he enjoys performing before a live audience without cameras more than with them as it allows for more of a personal connection. His live shows are so popular that they are attended by an average of 2 million people per year – it is little wonder that Brown has been awarded with two Olivier Awards over the years.
