The used-to-be venerable Wall Street Journal, now owned by that same dude that signs the checks at myspace, ran a page one story about ventriloquist Terry Fator winner of last year’s America’s Got Talent.
From the freaking front page:
In February 2007, Mr. Fator auditioned his act for three different Las Vegas producers; each one told him he wasn’t “Vegas material.” This May, he signed a $100 million, five-year deal to headline at Vegas’s Mirage hotel, beginning Feb. 14. Now he has a full-time manager, road manager, publicist, and a team of writers.
We give up. Whatever. If medicinal leeches can make a come back – anything is possible.
