Derren is the son of Chris and Bob Brown and has a brother who is nine years younger than him. He went to the private Whitgift School, located in South Croydon, and after matriculation, enrolled at the University of Bristol, where he studied the German language and Law. During his college years, Derren became interested in illusions and hypnotism when he went to a hypnotist show by Martin S Taylor, and from then on, decided that illusion and hypnosis would be his career. As early as 1992, he became a restaurant and bar act, performing his magic and slowly building up a name for himself. He soon reached the stage of his alma mater, the University of Bristol, and from there, showed himself to the whole world.

After several years of working in the shadows, Derren made his first TV appearance “Derren Brown: Mind Control” in 2000, and since then has produced 19 more TV specials, but also appeared in other variety shows that have only increased his wealth. He won a BAFTA TV Award in the category Best Entertainment (Program or Series) in 2012, for his TV special “Derren Brown: The Experiments” (2011). He has been seen in such shows as “Derren Brown: Trick of the Mind” (2004-2006), then “Derren Brown: Trick or Treat” (2007-2008), “Derren Brown: The Events” (2009), “Living the Life” (2013), “Choccywoccydoodah” (2014), and “Derren Brown Presents Twisted Tales” (2016), among many others, all of which were very popular, and increased his wealth to a large degree.

Aside from television appearances, Derren is also an accomplished author; he has written four books on magic, including “Absolute Magic”, “Confessions of a Conjuror”, and “Tricks of the Mind”, the sales of which have also contributed to his wealth.

Regarding his personal life, Derren is openly gay and has been in a long-term relationship with a designer, whose identity remains a mystery.

Since his early twenties Derren has been an atheist, though he was raised as a Christian with his parents sending him to Bible classes from when he was five years old.

He is also known for his dedication to and love for parrots – in his line of work, he finds their ability in mimicry fascinating; he is the patron of the registered charity the Parrot Zoo Trust in Friskney, Lincolnshire.

#Quote
1One of the hardest things I've had to learn is that if someone misunderstands you, it's your own fault.
2You can't perform mind-reading all the time or you'd never be able to have friends or form relationships.
3Returning for a moment to the theatre stage doors, it is not uncommon to meet there a small band of truly devoted people who follow me from show to show. Among this group are numbered an even smaller handful, who, having stood in the rain and cold with many other patient and delightful people awaiting my arrival, usher everyone else before them so that they themselves can spend more time with me after the others have left, as if they and I enjoy an exclusive relationship not extended to ordinary 'fans'; and then, out of this same eagerness not to appear obsessive(as if the other people were being anything other than entirely flattering), they finally feign indifference and exaggerated nonchalance to the point of actual rudeness, wordlessly thrusting across photographs to sign and then looking away with a grand display of apathy while I accede to their requests. They are kind enough to have spent their money on several shows, sufficiently sweet to follow me from city to city and queue in unfavourable conditions when they should be getting home, yet in a misjudged effort not to seem like a loony, they act exactly like one. I have spoken about this with many performers, and it seems a very common occurrence - a wonderful, predictable glitch in our natures that makes us behave quite antithetically to how we would like to appear. I have, of course, made the same mistake.
4(on finding a partner) If it happens, it happens, you know. The more you go out and look for it, the worse you make it for yourself. One day someone will turn up - or they won't. But I'm sure one day they will.
5I am embarrassingly incompetent at football or any kind of team sport. I'm so bad it would anger you.
6I was inspired by a stage hypnotist, but I didn't really want to do that - I didn't want to make people look stupid. So I started doing magic. But the trouble with magic is that it's either naff or, however good a trick it is, you know it's just a trick. It's inherently quite patronising. If you say, 'When I click my fingers the coin travels through the air,' you know it's rubbish.
7(Talking about two of his TV shows) "Seems The Séance has become the most complained-about show. It received 700 complaints. I might add that the prospect of me blowing my head off on live TV last year attracted only twenty. Fair enough, I suppose."
#Fact
1Had two dogs as a child called Tammy and Lucy.
2Owned a parrot called Figaro for ten years, that went to live at The National Parrot Sanctuary in Friskney, Lincolnshire, UK, before passing away.
3Is the patron for The National Parrot Sanctuary and its registered Charity - Parrot Line.
4A principle demonstrated at one of his stage shows, of how the distraction of counting ping-pong ball transits prevents one from noticing the guys in gorilla suits entering the edge of vision, was used in a Mayor of London 2008 awareness campaign advert that alerted motorists to the need for looking out for unexpected cyclists.
5His show, Something Wicked This Way Comes, won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Entertainment Show 2006.
6Has a parrot named Rasputin.
7Other than his main work, he is also an artist who paints caricatures of famous people.
8Studied Law and German at Bristol University.
9Attended Whitgift School, Croydon.
10Lives in Marylebone, London.
11Has one brother, Dominic, who is nine years younger.
12Is a fan of Taxidermy.
