    I saw Reveen a few times many years ago when he came to Montreal. The first show I saw with my girlfriend at the time and she ended up hypnotized and part of the show. Until that point I had always been very skeptical about it but she ended up on stage and the results were hilarious. Of course she remembered nothing at the end of the show and was given two free passes so that she would be able to catch another performance. She returned with her mother a couple of nights later and after the show she called me almost in a panic wanting to know exactly what she had done while hypnotized. :D

    He was a true master of hypnotism and a great showman to boot.

    I saw him years ago and he was definitely a great entertainer!

    I actually started to listen to classical music after going to his show. He played one piece at the end of his shows that I always associate with him whenever I hear it. Unfortunately the name of the piece doesn't come to mind at the moment.

    I never saw his shows. Never thought that could be done until I saw it at another hypnotists show at a fair. Crazy stuff.
