Danny Gans - Why he will be missed.

Where are the great impressionists now?

Danny Gans wasn't world famous or in numerous Hollywood blockbusters. He was one of those impressionists that didn't need a million props to "become" the person he was impersonating. In Las Vegas in worked the Las Vegas Strip up and down since 1996. He used moslty clean comedy to make us laugh until our sides hurt.
He had won Las Vegas Entertainer of the Year, and his show had been name Las Vegas Show of the Year. He worked many of the Strips Hotels including Stratorsphere, Rio, and the Mirage. In fact he did so well at the Mirage they built and named the Danny Gans Theater for him.
In 2009 the Wynn Encore hired him. Unfortunately his run would be short.

Danny had been known in the Christian Music circles as he had released a pop chrisitian album.

How did Danny Gans Die?
In 2009 he passed away at his home in Henderson, Nevada of a prescription drug called hydromorphone. Danny had an adverse reaction to the drug. Danny had an heart condition. However, he took great care of himself with exercise and eating healthy. It was just one of this misfortunate Las Vegas Deaths.

He will be missed by all those who got to see his brilliant act.

  1. Danny Gans will sorely be missed.

  2. Las Vegas has lost a great show to an untimely death.

  3. I saw his show once in Las Vegas at the MGM I think. It was ok but Rich Little was better.
