Skintight’s Darryl Ross Is The Triple Threat of Vegas Adult Shows – He can sing, he can dance and he can act. He is Darryl Ross, a “triple-threat” entertainer, who since 2001 works the stage with the cast of Skintight at Harrah’s Las Vegas.
Starring in Skintight, alongside Shannon O’Keefe, Ross surely keeps this cast “skin-tight” by meshing his stunning looks with his off the charts octave range and his soulful and sensual jazz background.
As if excellence in the performance of the arts were not enough, Ross was also an accomplished wide receiver for the Dukes, of the James Madison University in Virginia. Ross has starred in the motion picture “Toy Soldiers,” performed in “A Chorus Line” and co-starred with Frank Gorshin in “New York, New York,” before finding a home with Greg Thompson’s Skintight in 2001.
Bearing his American pride, Ross has performed for the U.S. troops in South Korea, Japan, Iwo Jima and Pearl Harbor. Since his Las Vegas debut, Ross has also been featured in a number of Playboy revues, wrote and recorded albums and has performed alongside rap artists like Run DMC and Ludacris.
Ross performs nightly with the cast of Skintight in the Clint Holmes Theater at Harrah’s Las Vegas.
