Alan Partridge: Tony Le Mesmer Performance & Interview

Hypnotist and magician Tony Le Mesmer from “Knowing Me Knowing You”. With Steve Coogan and a lady in a cage. I based the character on Derren Brown even though I hadn’t even heard of Derren Brown at this point. That’s how good an actor I am.

Actually I think he was a mix of David Copperfield, this mockney stage hypnotist I once saw in Oxford and David Blaine. Or was David Blaine not quite around then either? I can’t remember, the mind plays tricks. Which is how these guys make a living I guess…

  1. David Blaine has very good showmanship and his magic tricks are good too.”.;
