Las Vegas Strip entertainer Danny Gans dies in his sleep at 52

LAS VEGAS — Danny Gans, a singer, actor and impressionist who for the last decade was one of the most popular entertainers on the
Las Vegas Strip, died in his sleep today. He was 52. Officials at Wynn Resorts, where Gans had performed at the Encore Theater since February, and at The Mirage, where he performed for more than eight years before that, reported Gans’ death. “All of us in The Mirage family are deeply saddened to learn of Danny’s passing,” Scott Sibella, president of The Mirage, said in a statement released through parent company MGM Mirage Inc. “We all knew of his devotion to his family and our hearts and prayers are with his wife and children.” Gans was found dead about 3 a.m. by his wife, Julie, at their home in Henderson, said Wynn Resorts spokeswoman Jennifer Dunne. Henderson police did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment, and the Clark County coroner’s office said no information about Gans was immediately available. Steve Wynn, chief executive of Wynn Resorts, called Gans’ death “a profoundly tragic event that leaves us all sad and speechless.”
“The loss of Danny to his wife Julie, his children Amy, Andrew and Emily is at this moment impossible to comprehend,” Wynn said in a statement issued on behalf of his company, himself and his wife, Elaine Wynn.
