A VERY TERRY CHRISTMAS delights at the Mirage

It's beginning to look a lot like A VERY TERRY CHRISTMAS. Strip headliner and America's Got Talent winner, Terry Fator, helps stoke the fires of the Christmas spirit in Las Vegas with his annual Christmas show, A VERY TERRY CHRISTMAS, at the Terry Fator Theatre at the Mirage.

The show is fun, engaging and tugs at your sentimental holiday side, although Fator makes it very clear that "This is not a holiday party, this is a Christmas Party."

 

The evening opens with Ben Harris performing as a welcome DJ, spinning uplifting music and dancing to the popular tunes. He gets the audience ready for the Christmas Party that is about to begin.

Modeled after the old Bing Crosby/Andy Williams styled Christmas TV specials, Fator engages the audience with his warm and wonderful voice as "guests" drop by to say hello. This is where Fator truly shines. Throughout the course of the 90 minutes show, Fator creates over a dozen different characters, each of whom has a unique and distinct personality and voice. For those of you who do not know who Terry Fator is, he is a master ventriloquist and impressionist capable of making his audience suspend their disbelief and bringing dozens of puppets to life.

Fator includes his real life wife, Angie, as the gracious hostess for the Christmas Party and includes a fine array of musicians as part of the family. Over the course of the show we hear his puppet guests sing ala, Tony Bennett, Cher, Ethel Merman, Dolly Parton, Johnny Mathis, and my personal favorite, Bing Crosby and David Bowie doing The Little Drummer Boy. President-Elect Donald Trump makes an appearance and sings a line from a Billy Joel song, "I just may be the lunatic you're looking for."

Fator has a strong tie to our veterans and first responders across the country. All the profits from the merchandise sold at his show goes to helping wounded vets and he shows a touching video of one such man who was able to walk down the aisle at his daughters wedding due to the help he received from Fator's gifts.

A highlight of the evening was when Fator picked a young man out of the audience, a Canadian policeman, and dressed him up as Dolly Parton, hysterical.

A VERY TERRY CHRISTMAS runs nightly at the Mirage through Dec 22. I would highly recommend seeing Terry Fator in a different routine than his three-year long headlining stint. It is a wonderful way to celebrate the Christmas season.
