Just over a month ago, Mirage headliner impressionist Terry Fator celebrated his 3rd anniversary on the Strip. To commemorate the milestone, Fator held a special Sunday performance where he unveiled his newest dummy-doll lounge singer Monty Carlo. The addition of Monty Carlo is just one of the reasons Terry Fator – Ventriloquism in Concert is a must-see show.
It’s now tradition to add a new character to his lineup on his show’s anniversary. In fact, Fator stated last anniversary that adding a new character every year keeps his creative juices flowing and keeps things exciting. And exciting it certainly has been!
Last year, the ventriloquist added the very funny Berry Fabulous. Barry was the fifth created especially for the Las Vegas show and joined a cast that included Fator’s already popular characters Cowboy Walter, Emma Taylor, Winston the Impersonating Turtle, Maynard Thomkins, Julius, Dougie Scott Walker, and Johnny Vegas.
Today, nine of Fator’s best characters join him onstage for a show that lets the ventriloquist show his many talents which include everything from comedy to ventriloquism, and even celebrity singing impressions. Those singing impressions are one of the highlights of the show and include Garth Brooks, Dean Martin, Aretha Franklin, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, and many more.
In a recent interview, Fator revealed what exactly goes into each of his shows saying he performs 55 songs nightly and has mastered 100-plus voices. He is able to sing in five octaves. He taught himself ventriloquism at age 10 and earned $25 for his first gig at 11. Since then he has used 40 puppets to create a brand of comedy that people from all over the country can’t stop talking about. In fact, he’s been named “Best All Around Performer by the Las Vegas Review Journal “Best Of” Readers Poll and “Best Impressionist” by “Las Vegas Weekly’s Vegas’ Best.”
Terry burst on to the entertainment scene just a few years ago as the winner of Season 2 of America’s Got Talent. It wasn’t long after Terry’s win that he headed here to Sin City for a short run at the Las Vegas Hilton. He was then lured to the Mirage in one of the largest paydays in showbiz history: a five-year and $100 million contract.
In addition to being one of the best impressionists in Las Vegas, Fator has also penned an autobiography appropriately titled, “Who’s the Dummy Now.” The book chronicles his story and his overnight success.
