Terry Fator, critically acclaimed Las Vegas headliner and "America's Got Talent" winner, is taking his act to Denver's Bellco Theatre on Saturday, Sept. 15 for the Zarlengo Foundation's annual comedy benefit show and AXS has your tickets to see this multi-talented performer live. Tickets will be available this Wednesday, Feb. 28 at 10 a.m. local time by following this link; here are five reasons why you should get yours before they're gone:
1) He brings a full cast of characters
Fator is best known for his ventriloquism, which he performs with more than a dozen different puppets. Last year he returned to "America's Got Talent" alongside eventual winner Darci Lynne Farmer in what could be the show's biggest double act ever (check out some of his work in the announcement video above). So when you're seeing Terry Fator live, you're not just seeing him; you're getting a whole roster of characters, each with their own distinct personalities and gags. It's a full night of entertainment.
2) His act is fresh and timely
Though Fator may be best known for winning "AGT" back in 2007, his show and talents have evolved greatly. Fator has changed up parts of his act consistently over the years, making each show a different experience. Last year he introduced a Donald Trump puppet into his lineup, and then rebranded him as "Santa Trump" for the holiday season. While it hasn't been revealed which characters will be part of his Bellco Theatre performance, fans can rest assured knowing they're going to enjoy laughs they haven't had before, even if they've seen him a dozen times.
3) He's more than a ventriloquist
Fator achieved national fame with his puppets, yet that's only one part of his act. He's also a singer, comedian and a capable impersonator (more on that later). Fator also showcases his stand-up comedy and singing in his live shows in addition to his ventriloquism; check out his "Shape Of You" cover to hear what he sounds like when he's performing as himself. Though all of his characters are worth watching, Fator has multiple talents on his own as well.
4) He can laugh at himself
Whereas many comedians make fun of other people and situations, there's a charming self-deprecating quality to Terry Fator's act in which both he and his characters are just as likely to poke fun at themselves as anything else. After all, one of his most popular characters, Duggie, is almost always completely out of it. Good comedians can find the humor anywhere; the best comedians aren't afraid to be the humor. Fator has mastered both ends of the spectrum.
5) He's an astounding impressionist
Fator has a number of original characters but he's also very good at impersonating several celebrities, too. He's not only brought Donald Trump into his act, but also has another puppet that pays tribute to Elton John, and for Christmas, Fator whipped up a video with Bing Crosby and David Bowie. It's uncanny how many voices he can pull off, and fans won't believe how accurate he is. It's definitely the kind of thing you have to see to believe, and luckily you'll have that chance when he arrives in Denver.
Tickets to Terry Fator at the Bellco Theatre range from $49.95 to $69.95 and go on sale Wednesday, Feb. 28 at 10 a.m. local time through AXS. Please note that the venue has posted a content advisory recommending this event for comedy fans 18 years old and over, as it contains some adult content.
