Terry grew up in the family of three siblings, and since his childhood days he has done shows to amuse his whole family. While in fifth grade, he found a book entitled “Ventriloquism For Fun And Profit” written by Paul Winchell, became more and more interested in it, bought his first ventriloquist dummy, and soon won his first prize ever, winning $25 performing at the church picnic.

Before his professional ventriloquist career started, Terry was engaged in the music industry with a few cover bands, however with no major success. In 2007 came his big break, as he appeared in the TV show “America`s Got Talent”.

In 2007 he has also appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show”, performing with some of his characters. However, his biggest deal so far is a collaboration with the Hotel Mirage in Las Vegas, as he signed a contract worth $100 million to perform every night from May 2008 until 2013. Fator has also made other live appearances in theatres, and has appeared several times as a guest star in the show where his career began, “America`s Got Talent”.

Airedale; a frog Winston The Impersonating Turtle, which is inspired by Kermit The Frog; singing Louis Armstrong`s songs; Maynard Tompkins which does impersonations of Elvis Presley; Duggie Scott Walker, a heavy metal singer impersonating AC\DC; and Lynard Skynyrd.
