This tumblr fuses magic, suggestion, psychology, misdirection and showmanship. I achieve all of the results you will see through a varied mixture of those techniques. At no point are actors or stooges used in this tumblr.
I was just on a bus and heard the following conversation:
Woman #1: That Darren Brown thing was so fake on Friday did you see it?
Woman #2: Oooh I know you could tell he was an actor
Woman #1: I know you would think with all the money he has he would get better actors for it, even that Leony girl was rubbish. He could have got his wife to do it or something.
Woman #2: I know, I won’t be watching any of that tosh again.
(Note the use of the word tosh… i laughed internally)
