The puppet man was in Redding and I never thought I’d find myself saying this with my own lips but……”I scored tickets to see a ventriloquist!” Even typing such a sentence makes me shudder as it seems such a long way from my rock concert bragging. Having seen Terry Fator however, my voice is now shouting to anyone in hearing distance, “Have you seen this guy yet? NO? Are you crazy? He’s fantastic!”
The man is not only funny but truly an amazing singer both with and without the puppet voices. What’s even better is how generous he is with his time and star factor. He honestly gets it that the public who pays to see him wants to take these memories with them so he doesn’t mind us blazing away with our cameras.
His range is “everything” so it doesn’t seem like any genre is off limits; country, hip-hop, soul, pop, jazz, rock. You name it the guy can make it not only work but you may well want his recordings of these cover songs. After he’s made a fan out of you with laughter and enjoyment he finally reveals what’s really lurking deep in his heart, compassion. His sister suffers physically but she makes puppet socks by hand so each one sold goes to her care. He put out a cd of music he wrote and every penny is to go to a research endeavor for disease cures.
It’s about time a “good guy” got to have a voice in our entertainment world.
