Comedian/ventriloquist/etc. Fator at the Capitol on Saturday

Reality show champ Terry Fator is coming to Yakima for a Saturday performance at the Capitol Theatre.

The charming ventriloquist, comedian and singer gained national attention -- and plenty of talk show gigs -- after winning the second season of NBC's "America's Got Talent" in 2007. In February, he will begin a five-year stint at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, performing five nights a week.

But before that, Fator -- along with his cast of adorable puppets and more than 100 celebrity impersonations -- comes to the Capitol. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets cost $49.50 and $59.50 and are available through TicketsWest, 800-325-7328,, or the Capitol box office, 853-2787.
