Terry Fator is one of America’s greatest performers, but it wasn’t until he hit the magic number of 42 years of age that everything fell into place and he was discovered by the world.
42 became a magical number when Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy became a popular book. Five books were written in the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series between 1979 and 1992 (wiki.) 42 became the meaning of life. 42 became the answer to everything – even if the answer 42 didn’t make any sense.
According to Wikipedia, Terry Fator was thinking about giving up when he took one more chance and tried out for America’s Got Talent in 2007 at the age of 42.
I remember the appearance. Terry Fator was entertaining. He had a great voice. His puppets were almost human and he had a good skit. We were happy that he won America’s Got Talent and went to Las Vegas. Steve and I had no idea that we would also move to Las Vegas and see Terry Fator live at the Mirage.
Seven years later, Terry Fator is still new and fresh and his show is full of fun and laughter. His material is family friendly. He is not sitting on his laurels. In an interview I listened to, he said he is constantly striving to improve the show.
If you want a fun filled experience, we highly recommend that you go see Terry Fator at the Mirage in Las Vegas.
Below are some of the puppets from his show.
I am glad Terry Fator followed his dream. I appreciate the way he thanks the members of the armed services and other public services such as the fire department. The “good” story about who Terry Fator is as a person is almost as good as his show. Live long and prosper sir.
