Danny Gans

Danny Gans died today.

Unless you live near, or have visited Las Vegas - you might not know about Danny Gans. He was an impressionist, and his show was one of the hottest tickets in Vegas.

When I first visited the town in 2001, I was pretty amazed to see such a fuss (he has the record for the largest free-standing billboard in the world) being made over someone - an impressionist mind you - who I had absolutely never seen or heard about.

I'd like to end by saying I caught his show and was blown away, but I didn't. I'm sure he was great, though - everyone raved about him. (And that billboard... it was huge!)

Anyway, here he is (or was - as it were).
