Unfortunately I'm not too familiar with Browns work but this barry guy doesn't seem impressive. I didn't catch the show but I looked through those youtube clips. On the clip with the car salesmen and the car falling out of the sky, not sure if they were trying to hide it or not but the camera moves too far left and exposes the crane that held up the car right beside the building.
@teedee- "if criss angels producers had got to him" . . . . . Priceless hahaha
He sets up a car on the crane then the 3 car salesmen together think of the car he set up, they never saw the car either. One of them thinks of a color and one thinks of a brand and the last salesmen thinks of the color of the other half of the car
Keith barry isn't at all like a derren brown tribute act, i think thats unfair to say. If you've watched his television specials you'll see that, although deception has some street mentalism which is similar to derren's ill admit that much. I highly recommend his newest stage show which he just finished with here in Ireland, it's nothing like derren's, it's alot more of a comedy 'having the crack' kinda show, he really is his own performer and i dont think he's trying to rip off derren brown, but he may have looked at the huge success and massive popularity of derren in the uk and ireland , and tried to get some of that winning style into his own tv special. If it's what people want to see, i see no problem with having what some would call a heavy influence.
lol, i gotta say that ... despite some people say he is not immitating Derren Brown .... he is. I've noticed it since i first saw Barry perform. Maybe he's trying to become the Derren Brown of American or something ... His work is a bit too close to those of Derren's ... However, the name of the show "deception" to me ... seems accurate if you know what i mean because i kinda find it hard to believe that the car salesmen didn't notice the crane, or the mat, or the RED and YELLOW (talking about getting attention) car hanging above them. I would find it weird to see a crane in the middle of a car lot ...
