For the Reporter

Terry Fator, The Voice of Entertainment, brings his comedy act for a fun-filled evening at the Washington State Fair on Sept. 14.

In 2007, Fator became the “America’s Got Talent” Season 2 champion, taking home the $1 million prize and the title of “Best New Act in America.” It wasn’t long before Sin City recognized Fator as the headlining act he was destined to be. In 2007, he began performing at the Las Vegas Hilton. The following year, Fator signed what has been described as “one of the largest entertainment deals in Las Vegas history,” to headline his own show, “Terry Fator: The VOICE of Entertainment,” at The Mirage Hotel & Casino.

As a child, Fator was always fascinated with all forms of entertainment, but especially magic and puppets.

“But other kids in school were doing magic, and I wanted to be original so ventriloquism became my thing,” Fator said.

With a cast of characters including Winston, the Impersonating Turtle; Emma Taylor, the little girl with the big voice; Maynard Thompkins, the Elvis Impersonator; Duggie Scott Walker, the annoying neighbor, and many others, Fator has raked in awards and accolades for his popular Vegas show.
