Terry Fator & Puppets: Biographies
It took ventriloquist, singer, comedian and celebrity impressionist Terry Fator 32 years to become an overnight sensation when he won the hearts of American and was selected America’s Got Talent 2007 $1 million dollar prize winner on NBC-TV. His key decision to blend those incredible skills with his amazing ability to mimic famous singers won over the judges and millions of fans who voted for him.
Winston “The Impersonating Turtle”
One of the original members of Terry’s cast, Winston the impersonating turtle has wowed audiences with his impersonation of Kermit the Frog perfectly and then shifting to an awe inspiring rendition of Roy Orbison. Winston is one of Terry’s favorites and fittingly closes most shows with Terry beside him (where else would he be).
“The Lovely” Emma Taylor
This lovely lady has been with Terry from the beginning. Her unassuming appearance and quiet demeanor make her a welcome change from the rest of Terry’s colorful and flamboyant cast. That is until she does what she does best, sing – and, man, can she belt it out! She blew the judges away in her appearance on America’s Got Talent and has not looked back since.
Walter T. Airedale “The Country Man”
Walter T. Airedale is the self proclaimed “greatest country singer in the world.” As anyone who has heard him perform would agree, Walter T. Airedale indeed has one of the most unique and charismatic personalities on the country music scene today. His magnificent renditions leave women in the audience screaming for more. Talented, tough, sexy and a definite ladies man make Walter a hit from coast to coast. He truly is a legend.
Julius “The Soul Singer”
One of the great additions to Terry’s cast of entertainers is Julius, the greatest soul singer to ever hit Las Vegas! His smooth ballads, clever wit and flawless renditions are some of the best in the industry. From old to new, Julius has got it all. On an appearance with Oprah Winfrey, Julius brought the house down!
Maynard Tompkins “The Elvis Impersonator”
Maynard Tompkins is the self proclaimed “Greatest Elvis Impersonator in the World.” The only problem is that Maynard doesn’t seem to know any songs from the King. He is however a crowd favorite with his stunning outfits and smooth style with the exception of a slight stutter. The interaction between Maynard and Terry is priceless on stage. Maynard is the hope of every Elvis look-a-like in the country.
Dougie Scott Walker “The Rocker”
Dougie is the life of the show for everyone attending that had anything to do with the 60’s. A natural born rocker Dougie loves AC/DC, Guns ‘N’ Roses, Skynyrd and any group that really rocked those years. Suffering from occasional flashbacks and not afraid to show it, Dougie is one of the most colorful and outspoken characters in Terry’s show…and a total dude!
Feature Commentary with Terry Fator and His Cast Of Thousands
Top Customer Reviews
However when it comes to Terry Fator, you see he has ventriloquism talent and musical chops to pull off a show worth a million bucks. His "Wooden" friends are believeable and enjoyable.
When I got the screener DVD, it did not have the commentary tracks as the final copy did, it only had the filmed concert. This is-- according to a friend who seen his live show at the Mirage -- his live show. It transfer well to DVD. Better than some of Jeff Dunham's DVDs. The show of puppets and music will keep you laughing and humming along. His range and vocal talent is so verse for entertainment
There is one problem with this show, there is a Micheal Jackson comedy duet with one of the puppets that seems to fall flat due to MJ's death.
One of the highlighs of the show is when Fator makes a male live audience member into a Cher puppet (dress and all). Fator does Sonny for a I got you Babe song
This is real family entertainment with an edge for young and old alike. After you see this once , you want to see this again
So Terry, when is the next DVD. I want to see more!
Bennet Pomerantz AUDIOWORLD
For a guy whose main shtick, on the surface, is puppets, Terry Fator keeps you avidly tuned in for 71 minutes worth of show. But that's because there's much more to his act than just puppets. Dude is a capable ventriloquist, an uncanny impersonator, and a damn good singer. Add to that the fact that he doesn't pepper his act with the usual bland crop of puppet jokes. Oh, he does have puppet jokes, but I thought they were quite clever and very funny.
If you've caught his stuff on America's Got Talent, then you'll be familiar with several of his puppets and that these puppets do impersonations of famous singers. Okay, the pre-show gimmick is lame (Terry goes looking all over the Mirage casino for his missing puppets). But then Emma Taylor starts off the actual show with an awesome rendition of Etta James's "At Last" (the same song which wowwed the A.G.T. judges in Terry's audition). Winston the Impersonating Turtle, Terry's second favorite puppet, shows up and, of course, it's not a show without Winston singing "What A Wonderful World" as Kermit the Frog in a duet with Terry who also doubles as Louis Armstrong. But Terry's favorite puppet is actually that there cowboy dummy Walter T. Airdale. One of the best laughs happens when Terry Fator, gigged out as Michael Jackson, does a duet with the less-than-enthused Walter T. Airdale (who uneasily states: "Wait, somethin' - somethin' ain't right up here").Read more ›

Or for that matter, any special features on the blu-ray? It seems like every idiot who could "blah! blah! blah!" did so... or could complain about the condition a DVD was received from a seller other than Amazon (which is suppose to go in as seller comments, not here), but out of all... Read More
