Peter Reveen was (and is) to Canada what Johnny Carson was to the United States...a household name! Originally from Australia, Reveen landed on our North American shores in January 1961, with his first stop being Honolulu, Hawaii. After a few trials and tribulations, Reveen saw himself on a not so pleasant boat trip to San Fransico. Once there he purchased a ticket for a long Greyhound bus ride bound to Vancouver, British Columbia. Being Australian, which was part of the British Commonwealth, as was Canada, Reveen was granted a six-month visitor's visa on March 16, 1961. It was on the outskirts of Chilliwack, British Columbia where Reveen began his auspicious rise to fame with, quite literally, a nickel in his pocket. This was to be the start of a long and very successful career for the Australian hypnotist, a career that spanned over 35 years. Once in British Columbia, and with the assistance of an aquaintance, Reveen started to book himself into local community halls and legions with his very unique style of show. To promote the show, Reveen would hand out complimentary tickets to all businesses that would put a poster in their storefront window. In many towns, Reveen would work out a deal with the local radio station whereby he would give them a percentage of ticket sales in exchange for them promoting his concert. It was a long and gruelling road, but his hard work and efforts eventually paid off. He was given the opportunity to perform in one of the movie houses and the rest, as they say, is history. For over 35 years, commencing in 1962, Reveen toured the concert circuit throughout Canada, eventually playing for over 6,000,000 people. Because of the popularity of his concert, Reveen set many attendance records, some of which still stand to this day.
