Last Vegas 2010, Best for Last

I saved Terry Fator for the end of my Vegas posts. 'Cause he was awesome! I'm not gonna lie, i didnt watch America's Got Talent, and all I knew about him going into the show was that he was a ventriloquist. I had no idea he impersonated. And sang. and did comedy. all at one time. Wowzers!

Terry Fator is awesome because:

- He's from Texas! (Mesquite to be exact)
- All of his proceeds from merchandise sales go to help wounded soldiers
- He let you take pictures! He also does a meet and greet for free after the show.

Walking into the theater you see the usual vegas show sign "no cameras allowed." Well, it's Vegas. I'm not going to the hotel straight after the show...im going to have a look around, visit the Bellagio, do stuff I want to take pictures of. I have my camera with me. I dare not take it out the bag. Until...

Terry opens his show with Winston the Impersonating Turtle - and he says the rules are... there are no rules! He tells everyone to take as much photo and video as you want because he knows we snuck 'em in anyway. That the flash doesnt bother him and to go upload those videos on youtube when you get home. I looked at Justin with my eyes open wide going really!!?! Realllly!!!!?!?!? It was fantastic. That just doesnt happen in Vegas.

Anyway, the show starts and it was brilliant. A must see for sure.

The night we were there, Terry presented two charities with these checks from his merchandise sales!

Duggie Scott Walker (the annoying neighbor) - (by what i can tell online, he's also an old character, but newly designed) He likes rock n roll!

There's also some more skits he performed that involved an audience member, as well as some songs without the puppets.

Hope you enjoyed the photos!

The season he was on was the only one I watched - and I was rooting for him the whole time, loved him!
