Derren Brown is something of a minor celebrity over here. He's essentially a illusionist who uses hypnosis (or NLP or some such). He's ****ing fantastic. Genuinely very entertaining and highly enjoyable.

You can see a small trick he does here and someone gives a rather cogent possible explanation on how he does it here.

Also, here's an amusing trick he plays on Simon Pegg, from SHAUN OF THE DEAD and HOT FUZZ.

Two of my favourites though are this one involving a highly orchestrated suggestion for subliminal advertising, and a genius trick; playing NINE chess grandmasters SIMULTANEOUSLY. He explains all those tricks, and the chess explanation is particularly brilliant.

Enjoy!

I've seen the Chess scene and the Roulette scene and they're both great.
