“Don't know why he is a headliner. . .”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2010

We saw Terry Fator in the middle of September on a Tuesday night. It was okay. Not great. He is a pleasant enough man, and certainly a very talented ventroliquist, but his overall performance skills are so-so. He sings some songs solo, and he has a nice voice but the show kind of slows down in these parts. He does a nice call out to the people in the audience that have served, or are serving in the military, and apparently gives profits from the lobby sales to groups that support the military and their families, another nice gesture. The thing that bothered me the most is that smack in the middle of the performance he sings this song "Are there horses in heaven?" I am as sentimental as the next person, but this song is totally inappropriate in the middle of a Vegas show. Of course noone would actually admit it, even my husband had tears in his eyes - but really? A cancer song? Its basically that Christmas Shoes song, but with horses. Its kind of like taking your heart strings and yanking them right out of your body. And it just disrupted the whole flow of the act. I know that sounds heartless, but I paid a lot of money for a Vegas headliner, and he just didn't cut it. And I even applaud his efforts (I think he donates money from this song to cancer research), but let him do his thing on the internet - not in the middle of what should be a night of comedy. I would rate the whole show a B-. We were in Vegas for 5 nights, saw 5 shows and though this was the only one that we bought in advance, and the one we paid the most for, it was our least favorite.

“Don't miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2010

Terry Fator provides an outstanding 90 minutes of Las Vegas entertainment. Funny, creative, smart and clever. 98% clean but not humor children would understand. He's a showman and not to be missed. If there is one show to see in LV and you can skip the feathers, loud music and filler material of other shows, see Terry Fator.

“Gotta see show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2010

I have lived in Vegas for 27 years - this is the best show i have seen as far back as i can remember. Must see show - had lots of laughs and a couple tears. He seems to be a truly genuine person too.

“Best Show in Vegas.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2010

Had front row middle seat to see Terry Fator last week. Highly entertaining and laughed out loud all night. Booked tickets months ago from Australia so we could have good seats. Pay the extra and get the good seats. The details on the puppets are amazing. They have the most wonderful shoes. There are big screens on the side of the theatre but to watch him on screen you might as well watch the show on DVD.
Very funny and down to earth person. Show business hasn't affected him yet. Hope he stays like this. Just introduced a new song in the show which he wrote himself "Are there Horses in Heaven" The only serious bit in the whole show. Well deserved to be the No. 1 show in Vegas.
