"I chose to perform "Dr. Bill's Bend" on my television special because I needed a pendulum routine with a distinct ending. My studio audience loved this routine, and so did I. Perhaps I should add it to my live shows at the Waldorf-Astoria? It's that strong." - Steve Cohen, The Millionaires' Magician
Imagine using a simple pendulum made from a piece of ribbon and a key (these can all be borrowed) to teach an entire audience to focus their mental powers in ways that will blow their minds! Then imagine what starts happening when keys begin bending in their hands! Dr. Bill's Bend is pitch perfect as is, or it can be the smash climax to any routine highlighting the wonders of pendulums.
Originally published in David Thiel's anthology Pendulum Magic: Routines For Mystery Performers, Dr. Bill's Bend has been updated to include Steve Cohen's very dramatic touches, subtleties from Banachek, as well as ideas and a full presentation from Mauricio Jaramillo. Dr. Bill's Bend, described by David Thiel as a "system" for creating pendulum effects, can truly be performed for one or one thousand.
There are several variations, including ideas from Andrew Gerard, Tony Razzano and Bob Cassidy. This is a "mini-course" on getting the most out of your pendulum work. Instructions on enhancing your use of suggestion are also part and parcel of Dr. Bill's Bend!

"If you've ever wanted to do a metal bending effect, but lacked a well laid out routine with which to present it, Dr. Bill's Bend is a great way to go. It builds logically by employing ideomotor response to help your audience suspend their disbelief as the effect reaches its climax. One can easily see why it was chosen by Steve Cohen to be included in his TV special, 'Lost Magic Decoded'." - Bruce Bernstein
"An absolutely wonderful framework for metal bending. The audience has something to see and a wonderful surprise at the end. This is a reputation maker." - Banachek
"When I first looked at Dr. Bill's Bend, I knew I was holding something very special. There is much more than a simple routine...it's an entire presentation that crackles with fresh thinking. An absolute masterwork." - David Thiel
"Dr. Bill's Bend is, without doubt, one of the best key bending routines I have seen. The presentational script is powerful and there is absolutely no heat on the moment of the bend. Whether you are a Mentalist or a Magician, Dr. Bill's Bend is guaranteed to mesmerize, entertain, and stun any audience." - Peter Duffie
