Meeting Derren Brown
Last week I went to see Derren Brown Underground in Cork Opera House, Firstly, the show was outstanding! Watching a show like this is incredibly inspiring and I now have the itch to do a new show (watch this space). Also during the show the Cork audience did something that Derren has never seen happen before. During the show Derren invited a few men on stage and as they got on stage they introduced themselves to each other and shook hands. Derren had already been on twitter to declare his love for Cork and the people but this took it to another level for him.
Apparently I’m not allowed to stay and live in or around Cork for the rest of my life because I have ‘responsibilities’ back home. Goodbye then Cork, lovely people, it hurts to leave. – Derren Brown
After the show I went for a drink with Steve Spade and his girlfriend. Shortly after arriving we noticed that Derren Brown was with his crew in the bar. Nervously approaching I introduced myself to Derren and congratulated him on an amazing show. They say never meet your heroes but I have to say that Derren couldn’t be nicer! He was happy to talk and seemed genuinely happy that we enjoyed the show so much. Having talked about his show and the blindfold drive myself and Steve Spade had done the previous day he graciously posed for photos and signed a programme. He even attempted to cure my baldness with his powers (fingers crossed).
I can’t wait to see what he does next!
