LAS VEGAS – Singer-actor-impressionist Danny Gans, who spent more than a decade as one of the most popular entertainers in Las Vegas, died Friday. He was 52. Gans was pronounced dead in his bed shortly after police and paramedics were summoned to a report of a man not breathing at Gans’ home about 3:45 a.m., said police spokesman Todd Rasmussen.
Foul play was not suspected, Rasmussen said. A Clark County coroner’s spokeswoman said an autopsy was pending, and Rasmussen said police were investigating “according to standard procedure.”
I’d never even heard of Danny Gans before visiting Las Vegas, where posters for his show were plastered everywhere. The man was billed as the “greatest performer that ever existed!!!!”
I dunno – I never saw him. But I suppose this is sad anyway.
