One might think that with finding success after 25 years of performing at county fairs and oddball venues, the moral of singer-comedian-celebrity impressionist Terry Fator's story might be the cliché of Never give up on your dreams. But, when it comes to Fator's story of success after 40, that old adage doesn't quite ring true.

«I actually don't believe in not giving up,» laughs Fator, 49, who was ranked No. 2 on Forbes' list of the top-earning comics just behind comic legend Jerry Seinfeld in 2013. «It's okay to give up because I did. I worked for 25 years playing every fair, small club and kids' party I could and it just felt like it wasn't going to happen. I resigned myself to just playing kids parties. That was okay for me. But, I didn't stop working and doing the thing that I love to do and getting better at it. Once I did that, something finally happened for me.»

That «something» was NBC's hit competition show, «America's Got Talent.» After turning down a chance to compete on the first season of the show, his fans wrote the show saying they just had to have Fator on. Producers called Fator and invited him to audition. After seeing, and liking, Season 1 of the show, Fator went for it, and in 2007 the then 42-year-old comedian became the «America's Got Talent» Season 2 champ, taking home the $1 million prize and title of «Best New Act in America.»
