Saturday Night Roundtable - Andy Nyman!

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by j.bayme, Apr 14, 2012.

    This past week, we announced the newest, latest, and some say the greatest (!!) theory11 artist: Mr. Andy Nyman. He's credited as the co-creator, writer, and producer for Derren Brown’s TV specials. And over the past two decades, he has achieved success on screen and on stage. He has a disturbingly devious mind, and we're proud to share a few of his latest creations with all of you in the coming weeks.

    Tonight, he'll be hosting a roundtable discussion with YOU. Each time we do this, we post an open call for questions from members around the world. You have 24 hours to post up to three questions for Andy in this forum thread. Ask about anything: his work with Derren Brown, his successful West End play Ghost Stories, or his debut effect at theory11: INSANE.

    The best questions will be answered in our podcast recording tomorrow evening - less than 24 hours from right now. One random person who submits a question included in the podcast will receive a six pack of Monarch's, sent on the house! The clock is ticking. Post your questions below!

    UPDATE :: Podcast has been posted! Listen to it now in our roundtable discussion archive.
