Pete's Place (Series) (1980-81)

Pete's Place
This comedy/musical variety show which originated from "Pete's Place," a financially troubled Las Vegas nightclub (played by Toronto's Brunswick House). Comedian Pete Barbutti starred as the man who took rather desperate measures to keep this dilapidated night club from folding. The idea for Pete's Place grew out of a series of appearances Pete made on Peter Appleyard Presents, which was also shot in front of a live audience at the Brunswick House. The series was syndicated to independent stations throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Canadian and American guests making appearances included Erin Gray, Connie Stevens, John Candy, Howie Mandel, Gordon Jump, Cybill Shepherd, Sherisse Laurence, Phyllis Diller, Della Reese, Barbi Benton, Rosemary Radcliffe, Gordie Tapp, Frank Bonner, and Henny Youngman.
