Happy: Why More or Less Everything is Absolutely Fine
About this deal
As an undergraduate, he started working as a conjuror, performing the traditional skills of close-up magic in bars and restaurants. In 1992, he started performing stage shows at the University of Bristol under the stage name Darren V. Brown; the "V" stood for "Victor".   Career [ edit ] Performance [ edit ] Confessions of a Conjuror was published by Channel 4 Books in October 2010. It is a mix of autobiography and humorous observation told mostly through footnotes and diversions while Brown describes performing a single card routine for a group of people at his old restaurant gig.

Derren Brown is a mine of wisdom, humanity and kindness - everything we need to sustain and nourish ourselves. Alain de BottonThe phrase "it's fine" appears a lot in this book, when it regards everything we can't control ie. anything but our thoughts and actions, and I've already adapted this into the road rage I have experienced, for example: I particularly appreciated and enjoyed the stand-up comedian's Louis C.K.'s telling of anger on the road.
In 2008, Brown made a guest acting appearance in BBC Four's Crooked House as Sir Roger Widdowson. In 2007, BBC News listed two of his shows ( Russian Roulette and Seance) in a list of examples of Channel 4's "legacy of controversy".  In 2013, he said, "Controversy has never interested me for its own sake. It's always been about doing stuff that feels dramatic."
