Multiplying Bottles Master Class

When I was a teenager I was lucky enough to study with the Legendary British magician Ken Brooke, Amongst the routine he taught me was his Multiplying Martini Routine. I learned it in about 10 half hour lessons, and after the last lesson Ken said to me, “Nicky, you now have a great closing trick for the rest of your life!” How right he was. After 50 years as a professional magician it remains one of the two routines that I use to close my show. Other magicians who have made this routine a centerpiece in their shows are performers as diverse as; Denny Haney, Tommy Cooper, Ron Wilson and Pop Haydn.

I released an excellent video teaching Ken’s powerhouse Multiplying Bottles routine. It also included the many discoveries and updates I have made over the years. I have frequently been asked to perform a real “hands on” and “bring your questions” Master Class to teach this classic effect. I always said, “Maybe sometime…” Well, I recently decided that NOW was the time.

If you are interested in learning exactly how to perform the world’s finest mini-illusion this is your chance.

Amongst other things, you will learn

1.     The exact routine, including the masterful table blueprint that makes the production of each bottle visible.

2.     The correct bottles to use for the routine, and the bottles that don’t work.

3.      All about suitable tables, and important tips on setting and striking the props.

4.     The all important timing and pacing that makes this routine such a reputation maker.

5.      Tricks that work as a perfect lead in to the Multiplying Bottles routine.

6.      How to pack and travel the props safely.

7.       Nick’s powerful updates to Ken’s classic routine that perfectly update the effect for today’s audiences.

8.      The correct way to handle the props in a convincing and natural way.

9.      The full patter needed to sell the effect. What to say and what not to say.

10.     The way to add an extra punch to the end of the effect.
