"....and I think to myself, what a wonderful world." - "What a Wonderful World",- Louie Armstrong
Great show by a talented performer!
I watched the beginning of Terry Fator's meteoric rise to Las Vegas headliner on America's Got Talent several years ago. To describe Terry - he is a singing impressionist ventriloquist comedian. He does spot-on impersonations & sings better via ventriloquism than others do through their own accord. It was w/ great anticipation that I finally caught his Vegas show in his very own theatre.
To be frank, this show may be not be everyone's cup of tea. He is, after all, using puppets. However, I'm a big fan! His impressions of past & present performers, such as Cher, Dean Martin, Stevie Wonder & Adele are brilliant. His comedy sketches are witty & current. I thought it may have became a little edgy for some w/ one of his puppets "coming out the closet", but I thought it was hilarious.
Terry also sings a few original songs sans puppets during the show. One entitled "Horses in Heaven" & the other a tribute to the troops. "Horses in Heaven" is based on a true story of a child w/ cancer. He mentioned to the audience that the Las Vegas powers that be thought the song was too heavy & not appropriate for a Vegas show during it's development. He defied the powers that be, and I enjoyed the song, which made me think of my own experience w/ cancer.
Our show just happened to be the very one that surpassed 1 million guests to see Terry Fator's Vegas show. Even better, everyone in attendance received a Terry Fator reusable bag w/ the following contents-

I took that $10 Free Slot Play & magically turned it into $66 on a $1 slot machine! Oh yeah, I'm good :)
It was my last night in Vegas, and capped an already great trip.
I highly recommend catching Terry Fator's show at the Mirage during your next trip to Vegas. I laughed, I was moved & I had an absolute great time.

They guy sings better with his mouth closed than 95% of people with their mouths open. Not only is he a good singer, but very funny and entertaining. For all the fame he's got, he also seems like a pretty humble and down to Earth fellow.
From the opening DJ act to the finale with Winston the Turtle, it keeps you captivated. So much so I had to piss at the beginning of the show, but held it 90 minutes because I didn't want to miss any of it. Let me tell you it was worth it.
It's great to know that the inaugural winner of AGT is still working it. I can't say I even know any other act that has done anything after winning, including American Idol (except for Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson).
I know he has to slightly adjust his act to stay current, but I can see him packing the house for years to come. After you see this show, you'll be glad that he was found because he definitely has talent!

This guy is ridiculous! he is so talented it's crazy! no wonder he won "America got talent". Note, the guy is a ventriloquist, so if you don't like that kind of stuff, maybe it's not for you, but I would give it a chance anyway, he is amazing!
