Terry Fator

Ventriloquist ~ Celebrity Impressionist ~ Comedian ~ Singer

Terry Fator is perhaps the first entertainer to combine the art of ventriloquism with celebrity impressions.  His puppets, including Cowboy Walter, Emma Taylor and Winston the Impersonating Turtle, effortlessly perform the singing styles of an eclectic group of stars including: Tony Bennett, Elvis, Maroon 5, Garth Brooks, Nat King and Natalie Cole, Roy Orbison, Marvin Gaye, Gnarls Barkley, James Blunt, Brooks & Dunn, members of The Rat Pack, Louis Armstrong and even Kermit The Frog.

This Dallas native, whose career has reached a whole new level since “America’s Got Talent,” has been headlining at sold out shows nationwide.  The Mirage in Las Vegas recently signed Terry to a five year deal beginning in 2009, in which he'll be performing five days a week at the Terry Fator Theatre (currently the Danny Gans Theatre).

Celebration 2008 raised much needed awareness of and funding for Allegheny Valley School.  Proceeds from the event were contributed to the Capital Development Fund to help cover expenses that are not reimbursable by Medicaid including the start-up capital associated with program expansions, equipment, property and renovations.
