MAHNOMEN, Minn. (July 20, 2015) – Terry Fator, the multifaceted comedian and winner of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” will perform his headlining Las Vegas show at Shooting Star Casino, Hotel and Event Center, located at 777 Casino Road in Mahnomen on Friday, July 31, at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $45 and are on sale now. They can be purchased by phone at 1-800-313-SHOW (7469), online at, or via the “Buy Tickets” tab on Shooting Star’s Facebook page:

A native of Dallas, Fator discovered a natural ability at age 10 when he read a ventriloquism book and found what he refers to as “his calling” to the entertainment industry. When he began entertaining professionally, Fator sang in a cover band and later performed in county fairs and venues across the country.

His dream to turn his talents in ventriloquism, impressionism, comedy and singing into a successful career led him to audition for the second season of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” After impressing audiences with his unparalleled impressions and hilarious range of characters, Fator won the television talent show in 2007.

Soon after, his career took off when he signed a multi-million dollar contract to headline at The Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Fator displays his wide array of talents in and captures his audiences’ hearts and funny bones with his show, “Terry Fator: The Voice of Entertainment.” The show features his singing, comedy and amazing celebrity impressions of musical superstars such as Garth Brooks, Dean Martin, Aretha Franklin, Lady Gaga, and more.

In 2013, his popular show earned him the prestigious honors of “Best All-Around Performer,” “Best Impersonator,” and “Best Overall Show” by Las Vegas Review Journal’s “Best of Las Vegas Reader’s Poll.” Fator continues to leave audiences in endless laughter and – in 2015 – was named “Best Comedy Act” by Concierge Choice Awards.
