Okay it's unanimous! After reading several discussions on the Café' everyone agrees that Ken Brooke developed the best comedy routine using the Multiplying Bottles. Can anyone guide me to where I can buy a video or a book that either shows, explains or discusses his routine?

The line I like with this routine is "I only had one drink ---- from this one and this one and this one..."

Ken's Multiplying Bottle Routine can be found in his book "Ken Brooke, The Unique Years" His ENTIRE routine is explained there. Worth the price of admission. I got my copy about 15 years ago from Denny at Denny and Lee. Hope that helps cooldad1.

There's also a routine (but, I’ve been told, not quite the same one) in Ken Brooke’s “Multiplying Martini” booklet.

If you go to youtube, you can find performances by Lance Burton, Pete Biro, Denny, and many others which are more-or-less the Brooke routine.

In the Brook routine, the performer places one tube over the glass then starts to place the other tube over the bottle, but finds a second bottle was already inside the tube. That second bottle placed to one side. Later, the performer sets one tube to one side and works with just one tube. The glass changes into a bottle the bottle into a glass. But this requires an extra bottle. This is repeated several times.

But don’t just try to copy the routines from youtube. In the book he goes into some details, like the placement of the bottles, which you might miss if you just copy what you see on youtube.

Yeah Ken's Book is great, and goes into super detail as to the choreography of each and every bottle, down to the T. It's as far as I know the most detailed description of the routine in print.

Never heard of the Multiplying Martini Book Thom. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for that one. Thanks for the tip.

Best,
