Yep, I worked his act for a couple of years at the Tropicana hotel. Very entertaining.

I was working in the Folies in 1973. I was a Rudas Acro-Dancer. This was the BEST variety act I have ever seen in my 9 yrs in Vegas. Gus liked to have a few cocktails between shows. Some times he would take Mary Jane with him to the bar! I watched his act every night, twice a night, for 2 yrs and it never got old.
