You know him from “America’s Got Talent” as a singer and comedian and ventriloquist.

Terry Fator brings his “It Starts Tonight” tour to the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center at 8 p.m. Thursday.

The entertainer has headlined the last nine years at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas with sold out shows with his cast of characters that includes Winston the Impersonating Turtle; the World’s Greatest Elvis Impersonator; Elton John; Michael Jackson; Vicki the Cougar; President Donald Trump and annoying neighbor Duggie.

Fator became famous for his win on “America’s Got Talent” and has also won Las Vegas’s best show, best all-around performer, best family show and best overall show.

The Texas native spent 20 years on the road performing at schools and county fairs before he became a Vegas headliner.

His website, terryfator.com, details that even with all his time performing, he always finds time to enjoy life with his wife Angie and to give to the cause he believes in, helping America’s veterans. His foundation, Terry Fator Foundation, gives sales of merchandise at the Mirage or from his tour to charity including the American Cancer Society, Nevada Blind Children’s Foundation and Shriner’s Hospitals for Children, veterans causes and others.
