13 Derren Brown You Quotes

There is that 1970s cliche of the gay man as hairdresser, interior decorator, fashionista… and all of those things are about arranging surfaces in a very dazzling way – and magic is all about how you arrange surfaces.

” If you do magic, it’s the quickest most fraudulent route to impressing people. “


” People are just passively accepting what you tell them, so if you are on TV there is that greater responsibility to be true. “


” I think you can be sceptical, and still do things that are in a joyful way, and ultimately you are on stage entertaining. If you let your philosophy get too much in the way of that, then you are failing as an entertainer. “


” Sometimes you need to be aware of the bigger picture you are missing. “
