Terry Fator became a household name in 2007 when he won Season 2 of “America’s Got Talent” with his unique brand of entertainment that combines singing, comedy, and unparalleled celebrity impressions. After 25 years of honing his skills at county fairs and venues across the country, the Dallas-bred entertainer’s big “AGT” win at age 42 catapulted him into the upper echelon of entertainers, landing him at on Forbes’ list of the top-earning comics behind Jerry Seinfeld and Kevin Hart year after year. The feat is due largely to his multi-million dollar deal with The Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas where his award-winning show, “Terry Fator: The VOICE of Entertainment,” has been running since 2009. 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 been raking in awards, accolades, and industry admiration ever since. During his decade-long run at The Mirage, Fator released a DVD “Terry Fator: Live In Concert,” a country music CD “It Starts Tonight,” In 2019, Fator marked his 10th year since his “AGT” win by launching the Terry Fator Foundation which supports various charities throughout the year. In 2019, Fator celebrates his 10th anniversary as headliner at The Mirage where he plans to stay entertaining millions for years to come.
WINSTON THE IMPERSONATING TURTLE
Winston is the turtle who helped Terry win America’s Got Talent by showing the world that he (and Terry) can impersonate any singer and any style of music. He joined Terry’s team after his AGT performance. Winston’s innocence and inability to understand Las Vegas or life outside the boundaries of his pond reminds everyone of the child inside all of us.
Maynard is the world’s greatest Elvis impersonator…who never had the patience to actually learn any Elvis songs. He has toured with Terry on the road for decades and never fails to fail at doing what Terry asks. As neurotic as the actual Elvis, he doesn’t like his personal space to be violated, and will go to great lengths to keep people from touching him. His laziness and ability to fall asleep anywhere at any time should be a hinderance to his career, but as long as people are laughing he makes up for that with his charm.
Walter T. Airdale
Walter T. Airdale is a country music superstar who has known Terry longer than any other performer in his show. He can sing classic country, Grand Ole Opry, modern Nashville singers like Garth Brooks and Toby Keith, he can even yodel…anything that will impress the ladies. Walter has been married at least 8 times, thinks divorce was invented just for him, and he actually brought dates to several of his weddings, because in his words, “just in case”.
VIKKI THE COUGAR
Vikki the Cougar is that special combination of cougar and gold-digger—meaning she will date 21 year old pool boy hunks and 90 year old billionaire cardiac patients. She truly believes diamonds are a girl’s best friend and she sees herself as a mentor to young women who want to follow in her very round heeled footsteps. She is sultry, sexy and slutty, and unashamed to be all of those three things.
Wrex the Crash Test Dummy
Wrex is Terry’s psychiatrist, a former crash test dummy who helps Terry put things in perspective because of his philosophy of positive pessimism. He is a firm believer that life is meant to be nothing but trouble, which makes sense if you are a former crash test dummy, and his complete acceptance of his fate gives him the ability to rise above the suffering in a strange comedic way.
FERNANDO V. FRANCISCO
Fernando is the Vegas stage version of the movie’s Latin Lover, with a sexy confidence that comes from knowing that women love him because he is Fernando. Fernando is the man every guy dreams of being, who oozes self-confidence and sensual passion. He is the man women want to be with and the man Terry wishes he could be.
Terry’s new Dean Martin sounds great and looks fantastic, proving that alcohol is a preservative. Just like the days at the Sands, Dean teams up with Frank and Sammy to deliver classics from the Great American Songbook.
Willie Nelson is one of Terry’s five new cast members. He not only joins Fernando in a classic duet, but he reminds people the best way to handle the IRS.
Legendary soul, pop and R and B legend Stevie Wonder takes the stage dedicating a song to the love of his life, then invited Paul McCartney to join him on Ebony and Ivory.
The unforgettable David Bowie joins Terry for a set that includes a never before seen duet with another legendary British rocker, Sir Elton John.
A new superstar is joining the cast. Oscar winner and Grammy winner Elton John! if you love Elton’s Tiny Dancer, Benny and the Jets, Honky Cat and so many more, stop by the show to check him out.
“Paul McCartney” will do his special take on some Beatles classics.
Justin Bieber has joined the show and comes with a double surprise. Make sure on your next trip to Las Vegas come see me and them.
