Hi All:

I am working on developing a fun 15 minute stage act. I want to close with a Passe Passe Bottle routine (Using a neat old Abbott set that I recently picked up).

I need a few literary references in order to find a straight forward routine. I am currently learning the Ken Brooke Routine as explained in Ken Brooke's Magic: The Unique Years.

The routines in Tarbell were not my cup of tea, although I am sure they are fantastic in the right hands.

Appreciate any other suggestions.

Thanks, Robert Kane :)

Does your set have the 3rd bottle?

Yes, with section at top that can contain liquid to pour out of "bottle."

Fifty or so years ago, in Germany, I saw a pair of funny guys from Italy do a "gambler/sucker" type routine, one guy betting he knew where the bottle was...

Then, when the con man looked away, the sucker stole a bottle out and put it under his coat.

Every time he would look under his coat and show the audience the bottle he would up the bet...

Of course, in the end, he lost...

It was one of the funniest, best bottle routines I ever saw.

Can you try this approach?

Stay tooned...

:rolleyes: :p

That's the old Multiplying Bottles... years ago (when I was but a kid) we did it with a Sugar Bottle load that got broken over the "theift's" head... Memory serving me correct Lee Ramsey and his old partner did it at the old Bit O'Magic... Malone would know, he was there!
