Master puppeteer

Celebrity impressionist, comedian, singer and ventriloquist Terry Fator is not only the winner of America’s Got Talent but is considered to be one of the greatest illusionists on the Las Vegas Strip. Fator’s show at the Mirage Hotel and Casino uses 16 different puppets and amazes audiences with his spot-on singing, as he mimics the voices of many famous entertainers, such as Cher, Etta James and Elvis, all without moving his lips.

You’ll be laughing non-stop during his hour-and-a-half-long set, as this multi-talented performer uses comedic situations and impressionist skills that’ll leave you and the kids both in awe and in stitches.
