I went to the Magic Castle's award banquet last night and Derren Brown was named Magician of the Year. He was unable to attend but made a video for the event. I was suprised by how many magicians had never seen him before.

Derren Browns 1st ever book in any kind of magic was Mark Wilsons complete course and while working as a close up magician his repetoire was unbelievable, so he shouldnt mind to much at the magician tag

The video showed his rapid calculation button effect (from Something Wicked...)followed by a very cordial acceptance speech.

I am sure he doesn't mind, as he quite openly states that he uses magic as one of his methods. And no matter what, you will be referred to as a magician by the media and most of your audience. That is a fact.
I think he would be more insulted at being called a 'mentalist', due to the English definition of the word:

mentalist1
n. Brit. informal an eccentric or mad person.
- Concise Oxord english dictionary

Derren deserves the award. He is brilliant. It makes me laugh when people try to put him down, as it just makes them look like petty jealous morons.
