Scott “Carrot Top” Thompson has been making audiences around the world laugh for more than three decades. Since his debut on “Star Search,” Carrot Top has soared to success and become one of the most recognizable entertainers in the world. Fans have flocked to his Las Vegas headlining residency at Luxor Hotel and Casino for over 15 years to catch comedy’s King of Props current take on pop culture, music, and headlines of the day.
The trademark red locks and the undeniably inventive use of props have vaulted Carrot Top to the level that most comedians can only hope to reach. “Nobody can steal my act,” said Carrot Top, who constantly channels his creative genius to invent new props. With a dozen trunks filled with approximately 200 props on stage each night, audience members can count on not seeing the same show twice. “I love creating props that are relevant to whatever’s current – from a news headline to a song I heard on the radio.”
Carrot Top’s shows are a spectacle worthy of most arena rock bands and features lights, music, fog machines, and streamer cannons – all in addition to his trunks full of props. “When I started touring at the beginning of my career, I had two trunks and a strobe light,” said Carrot Top. “Things got pretty crazy pretty fast and before I knew it, I had a team touring the country in an 18-wheeler with 35 trunks full of props.”
