If you don’t, you should.
And if you are new to the art, these are some of the people you’ll definitely want to pay attention to!
7. LANDON HARVEY
I first met Landon when he won the Terry Fator Scholarship to Vent Haven ConVENTion. I don’t believe he has missed a year since.
Landon has won several people’s choice awards at Junior Open Mics held at the ConVENTion. His style onstage is relaxed and he shines in the spotlight.
Perhaps the coolest thing is Landon has started making puppets. His ideas are unique, his quality is great and he is just getting started.
Already, Terry Fator has purchased a couple of puppets from him – and that speaks volumes.
You can follow Landon on Facebook through his company page at: https://www.facebook.com/Theoriginaldummy/
6. CHANCE WOLF
The figures Chance produces are amazing. Mechanics are smooth and the best part – he delivers. In a business where life sometimes gets in the way of deadlines, I’ve only heard good things about him.
5. DALE BROWN
Dale is also a marketing expert. His blog, (written by his figure, Chip Martin) continually has great content and well written articles.
Dale told us awhile back he would soon be ending his blog. The content is worth reviewing no matter what. And if you are lucky – he will still be blogging when you get there!

3. JIMMY VEE
He is known as the “Five Foot High Marketing Guy. A co-founder of Gravitational Marketing, an author, entertainer, inventor, designer and blogger. I’ve no doubt left out a lot of other things.

2. TERRY FATOR
Headlining in his own theatre at the Mirage Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Terry also keeps an active touring schedule. With side projects, television, donating to charities and more – Terry is making the most of his fame.
Why should you follow him?
Because Terry endears himself to his fans. His social following may not be as big as some other celebrities, but his fan base is extremely loyal.
