Terry Fator On Post ‘America’s Got Talent’ Career
When Fator won America’s Got Talent, he saw his star power rise, but also felt pressure to produce material quickly. This time around, Fator feels like he’s putting out his own work – and he couldn’t be more proud of the results.
“This thing was many many years in the making. The first DVD, I was pressured into making and I didn’t feel like I was quite ready,” Fator told Uinterview exclusively. “I was pressured into doing a lot of the material, and the new DVD is all me 100%. I wrote it from beginning to end. I approved everything. Worked on it for months and months – in fact years.… And it’s got tons of great impressions, tons of great comedy and I’ve never been more proud of anything in my entire life.”
What’s Fator’s Favorite Act?
When Fator first took to the stage of America’s Got Talent, the judges couldn’t have guessed that he’d one day be celebrating his fifth anniversary of performing at the Mirage in Las Vegas. To this day, Fator still names “At Last” as his favorite impression, where he had his puppet sing the Etta James classic, much to the surprise and awe of the judges and audience.
“My favorite impression would have to be ‘At Last,’” Fator told Uinterview exclusively. “Because that really was the one impression that was completely a game-changer for me. When I walked out on America’s Got Talent I had a little puppet with me, and all of the sudden that puppet opens its mouth. I gotta say, all of the expectations were very low because they didn’t expect much from a ventriloquist and then the puppet walks out and goes, ‘At last, my love has come along!”
