Terry Fator Net Worth $100 Million
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”. The jury consisting of David Hasselhoff, Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne were astonished by his skills, and Fator eventually won the finale and a prize of $1 million. Following this success, his career has been constantly rising, as well as his overall net worth.
During 2007 he performed at the Hilton Hotel three times, and all shows were sold out. In late 2007, he signed a deal worth $1.5 million with the Hilton Hotel to perform three times a month from January to March 2008. 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”.
Some of his amusing characters include a country singer, Walter T. 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. He has many other characters as he is constantly bringing up new members into his puppet kingdom.
Addition to his net worth, he also published a book entitled “Who`s the Dummy Now” in 2008. Terry Fator has also been recognized for his charitable work. He has been a member of the “Ronald McDonald House of Charities”, an organization which acts to improve the overall health of children. Furthermore, he has held countless charity shows over the years, including in Montana at the Kidsports Sports Complex Kalispell, in 2007, perforing for the families of miners in Huntington, Utah, and a 2008 show at the Palace Theatre in Corsicana, Texas for the benefits of the Navarro Council Of The Arts and the Mildred Drama Club.
