Congratulations to The Gazillionaire from Absinthe at Caesars Palace on his one-millionth… lady?  That’s right the wacky leader of the Las Vegas show gathered his cast members including his assistant Penny Pibbets and Absinthe’s Green Fairy Melody Sweets to celebrate the milestone at Hyde Bellagio’s industry party, Lost Angels, earlier this week. The characters posed for photos on the red carpet before heading inside the Las Vegas nightclub.

Once inside the group settled into a VIP booth near the dance floor as The Gaz hurriedly jumped over a couch and onto the mic announcing, “Last night I slept with my one millionth girl right here in Las Vegas! Let’s celebrate!” And they did with plenty of drinking and dancing and their signature antics all night long.

To commemorate his feat, Hyde Bellagio presented The Gazillionaire with a large gold trophy, which he waved in the air as he toured the nightclub in Hyde’s brass boat to the song “I’m On A boat.” After showing off the trophy, he was presented with a cake adorned with his face and the number 1,000,000 inscribed on it.

Also celebrating at Hyde Bellagio was famed NHL player Wayne Gretzky. The hockey pro hosted a birthday party celebration earlier in the evening with family and friends including his wife Janet Jones-Gretzky, actor Alan Thicke and professional golfer Dustin Johnson.

In other Las Vegas celebrity and show news, Mirage headliner Terry Fator welcomed famed actor John Ratzenberger to his show Terry Fator: The Voice of Entertainment on Monday night. Ratzenberger, who is best known for his role as Cliff on the hit sitcom “Cheers” and his recurring roles in the “Toy Story” movies, was in town to honor Wounded Warriors. He took the stage with Fator and was later joined by several military veterans in the crowd.
