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!
