The Merv Griffin Show - Guest Stars REVEEN & THOR

Reveen, with that crazy voice of his, was always hard to take seriously. His series of hammy hypnotism LPs are hypnotic in their silliness only. Here he is at The Tropicana Hotel on an episode of The Merv Griffin Show.

A tour de force of entertainment is how this commercial describes Reveen. Unfortunately the quality of the clip is very poor as someone filmed it off their TV with a camcorder. I guess they were trying to bring back the concept of Kinescopes.

Well, we've watched Australian illusionist Reveen who was a popular act all across Canada for three decades. Now here is rock act Thor on another episode of The Merv Griffin Show filmed in Vegas. I love how he is introduced as John Thor (but Reveen was not introduced as Peter Reveen). I mention Canada, because Thor now lives in Vancouver. He makes occasional in-concert appearances with Nardwuar the Human Serviette and also once gave me a ride home.

Reveen lives on Vancouver Island, doesn't he? Or he did. Is he still alive?
