BIO: Terry Fator made history as the first ventriloquist to win America’s Got Talent. He didn’t expect to make it far on the series after watching someone with the same act not make it far in season one. The judges absolutely loved his act, which led to his win.

Fator got into ventriloquism when he was ten years old. He began performing by entertaining his family and friends with his ventriloquism and impersonations. His mother saved up money for three years and bought him his first dummy at the age of 18 years old.

Following AGT, Fator has become one of the biggest names in ventriloquism. His act has been his full time job since the season's conclusion.
