Las Vegas cabby juggles, dances, tells jokes to entertain passengers


Ronda Churchill/Las Vegas Review-Journal

Daniel Mann juggles pins outside Cottage Cafe. Mann, a taxi driver, entertains customers and passers-by throughout the day by juggling, dancing and telling jokes.

In a town overflowing with aspiring entertainers and colorful characters, Daniel Mann is the best juggling taxi driver who's famous in Ethiopia that you've never met.
Witness the impromptu show -- most of his shows are impromptu, actually -- Mann stages in the parking lot of the Ellis Island Casino & Brewery on a recent, stubbornly overcast morning.
Standing and dancing next to his taxi -- you can tell it's his by the 8-by-10 head shot in the window bearing the words "Daniel Mann, Taxi Driver/Comedian" -- Mann juggles a trio of cascading silver clubs. He juggles while doing this shoulder-jutting dance move. He balances -- perfectly -- his cowboy hat on his nose like a turquoise-shirted seal.
Ron Purpura and Veronica Mariaca look on with just-this-side-of-amazed smiles. They're visiting from Danville, Calif., and Mann's parking lot extravaganza certainly is the least expensive show they've seen in Vegas.
Mann's talents are "impressive," Mariaca says, while Purpura figures Mann is missing a bet if he doesn't use his juggling talents to attract fares.
"It might even get him better tips," Purpura says. "If there's a line of 10 cabs and one guy is outside juggling, right away I think I might take a ride with him."read more at--
