Before winning season two of America’s Got Talent, it was actually a show in Las Vegas that inspired Terry Fator to pursue his passion. Mr. Fator is a singer, impressionist, ventriloquist and comedian. His unique combination of talents led him to winning America’s Got Talent. And just as Las Vegas inspired him to make his dreams a reality by seeing the late comedian and impressionist Danny Gans’s show here, Terry Fator celebrated 10 years of having his own Las Vegas show earlier this year.
His show, An Evening with the Stars, at The Mirage Las Vegas showcases him doing impressions and singing, using a variety of celebrity puppets representing everyone from Elton John to David Bowie to Rat Pack members Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr., among others. Animal puppets are included in the show, as Winston the Turtle is showcased throughout, as Mr. Fator’s sidekick.
Terry Fator has a show, unlike any other you will see here, with singing puppets, impressions and comedy. He has rewritten the show many times over the last 10 years, in order to keep it fresh. The Las Vegas headliner believes that is one reason why his performances have had staying power in a city where audiences have many options in terms of entertainment. He also has a yearly holiday show, which begins next month.
After attending one of his recent performances at the Terry Fator Theatre at The Mirage Las Vegas, we had a chance to subsequently CYInterview the America’s Got Talent star, about a variety of topics. You can read the highlights and listen to the entire CYInterview below:
