Now believe it or not but I have actually heard of Terry Fator. No not because I am a fan. It's because I have been watching America's Got Talent since it started back in June 2007. He of course went on to win Season 2 and headline his own show in Las Vegas where he remains to this day. Don't get me wrong. I think he's very talented. I just don't know if it is something that I would want to see. Now for those of you are not familiar with him here is a synopsis of his act from the official website. Enjoy!
Terry Fator may just be the greatest illusionist on the Las Vegas Strip, but you'll never see him perform any magic tricks. He amazes audiences by singing like famous entertainers from Elvis to Cher without moving his lips, and that's not all. Along with being an impressionist and ventriloquist, Fator is a puppeteer. His face may not move much during his show, but his hands are always in action, bringing to life his cast of lovable puppet co-stars.
The puppets each have their own comical personalities and music style, which makes Fator's show feel like both a concert and a stand-up comedy routine. There's Winston, the impersonating turtle; Walter T. Airdale; Maynard Thompkins, the World's Greatest Elvis Impersonator; Emma Taylor, the little girl with the big voice; Duggie Scott Walker, the annoying neighbor; Julius, the soul singer; Monty Carlo, the lounge singer; Hyphen, the delusional British rocker; Vikki, the cougar; Barry Fabulous, a flamboyant hip-hop diva; and Wrex, the safety expert.
When the puppets aren't singing, they're sharing their comedic wit with Fator and the audience.
Combine that range of musical samplings and add in that Fator never opens his mouth more than half an inch during the songs unless he's taking a breath or, on the rare occasion, singing a song as himself.To call Terry Fator a master of puppets would be an under appreciation for his show and talents. But to call him the best singer on the Strip, who doesn't open his mouth more than half an inch, while using puppets and providing endless comedy might be more accurate. Unfortunately, that's really hard to fit on a billboard.
Sounds like a great show to me. Who knows? Maybe I will have to check him out one of these days. If he ever comes to New York that is. My guess is that won't be for a long time as he continues to be one of the top selling acts in Las Vegas. By the way for those of you looking for tickets to see Terry Fator you are in luck. Not only do we sell tickets to this show but every show in Las Vegas. Get your tickets to see Terry Fator at the Mirage in Las Vegas. Until next time Vegas fans.
