Gordie Brown

Entertainer Gordie Brown was working as a political cartoonist for the Ottawa Sunday Herald when his co-workers entered him in a talent contest. He took first place, and he hasn’t turned his back on entertainment since. Brown moved to Las Vegas to break into entertainment by opening for fellow Canadians Paul Anka and Rich Little. Since, he has worked with Jay Leno, Louie Anderson, Kenny Rogers, Randy Travis, Barry Manilow and Jerry Seinfeld. He went on to appear on A&E’s “Evening at the Improv” and co-host NBC’s “Friday Night Videos.” A stint in Reno led him back to Las Vegas, where he headlined at the Golden Nugget, the Venetian and Planet Hollywood Resort. Now he performs at the Golden Nugget with a live band in the Gordie Brown Showroom.
