Fator became a household name in 2007 when he won Season 2 of America’s Got Talent with his unique brand of entertainment that combines singing, comedy, and unparalleled celebrity impressions.
After 25 years of honing his skills at county fairs and venues across the country, the Dallas-bred entertainer’s big AGT win at age 42 catapulted him into the upper echelon of entertainers, landing him at No. 2 on Forbes’ list of the top-earning comics behind Jerry Seinfeld in 2013. The feat is due largely to his multi-million dollar deal with the Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas where his award-winning show, “Terry Fator: The VOICE of Entertainment,” has been running since 2009.
USA Dance, Monday, Nov. 24, 7 to 10:15 p.m., at Gulfport Casino, 5500 Shore Blvd., Gulfport. Admission is $7 and includes a dance workshop, professional and amateur exhibitions, dance hosts and snacks. For information, call 397-5754.
