Carrot Top Tickets for Sale

Clad in floral patterned vests and tie dye, looking more like a free-spirit hippie than a comedian, the red-headed Carrot Top has become one of the top entertainers in the country. Whether it's on the screen, stage or via the internet, Carrot Top is on the brink of superstardom.

As for Carrot Top's live show, it has to be seen to be believed. It has evolved into a spectacle of lights, lasers, and music. The evening consists of numerous travel trunks overflowing with bits and pieces of everyday life transformed into creations of reality which everyone can relate to: a Mark Fuhrman belt with a bloody glove attached, a party horn with an inhaler for asthmatics, a briefcase with a credit-card machine attached for O.J. Simpson's lawyers, slippers with bumpers for those nighttime excursions, etc. Each prop is introduced to his captivated audience with a twist of the absurd. With rapid-fire succession, he displays an uncanny accuracy for making people laugh in a carnival-like atmosphere.

Yes, that is his real hair and it's naturally this curly. There are some people who honestly think he went into a salon one day with a normal head of hair and said, "Can you screw it up real bad?", and then paid for it.

His favorite color is plaid, but he loves all colors and thinks they should all be worn at the same time. His philosophy on clothing is "Never Match – It's Boring." In case you were wondering, for a brief time he preferred briefs or boxers, but all he can tell you now is "I'm Swinging Like a Pendulum – Swing Low, Sweet Chariot."

He is originally from Cocoa Beach, Florida... Talk about a difficult place to get an education. When you get up, it's really hard making the decision whether to surf or go to school. He went surfing more than he went to school. His father worked for NASA and his brother became a fighter pilot after going to the Air Force Academy on a swimming scholarship, and here he is on stage, swinging around a plastic private body part. Now that's giving his parents something to be proud of !!!

He considers himself pretty strange. Sometimes he reminds himself of the Kennedys. Maybe he is a Kennedy or even an Osmond. Not because of the freckles or the red hair, of course, but because of his big teeth.

As for his transportation, he has a "rot-proof" Carrot-Mobile. And then there are his hundred servants, bowing at his feet. As for the road, what started out as a Yugo and a tackle box has now become 35 fully packed trunks – can't have enough props – in an 18-wheeler, and a tour bus.

Carrot Top would have to say his major comedy influences are Jonathan Winters, (you just look at him and have to laugh), and Robin Williams. Don't forget one of his favorites – George Carlin...the MASTER!

He also loves Garry Shandling. He wants to be like him when he grows up...IF he grows up. He first got to meet him on the 'Tonight Show.' He later did a part on his show as the 'Unwanted Guest' on HBO's year-end roast. He has also made repeated appearances on 'Politically Incorrect.' Bill Maher is another favorite. He's not afraid to take chances and you are definitely not going to pull anything over on him. Very cutting-edge. And of course what comedian doesn't wish his brain worked like Steven Wright's?

Today, Carrot Top is one of the most popular and successful comedians in America. Each year he stars for an astonishing 15 weeks in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand (the same venue as comedy hero George Carlin), headlines another 100+ concerts across the country, and makes dozens of television appearances. Thanks to becoming a celebrity TV pitchman for 1-800-CALL-ATT, which is featuring his commercials for the third year, he's a household name (he got the job when he told them, 'I love telephones.'). Not bad for a self-deprecating comic who attributes his achievement to 'I just try to be silly.' Carrot Top was born in Cocoa Beach, Florida where his father worked at nearby Cape Canaveral teaching moon-bound astronauts how to drive the lunar module. 'My dad is very funny, with a dry sense of humor. I'd remember his jokes and tell them to my friends. I was always the class clown, but I never got in trouble. I wanted to make people laugh, not be a troublemaker.'

Carrot Top thought about becoming an astronaut (his brother became a fighter pilot) but more surfing than studying led to Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton ("the Harvard of Florida," he jokes). His freshman year he went to a club and saw live stand-up comedy for the first time. A couple of months later, the campus bulletin board announced an open mic night. "I wasn't going to do it but my roommate said I should. He said, ‘You're funny.' I was scared and did some old jokes but people liked it." The next semester he went again, this time after writing his own jokes, focusing on the school – which prompted his first prop.

"The street in the center of town was Butts Road. I stole the sign and told the audience, ‘This must be where the assholes live.' I also had a Neighborhood Crime Watch sign – ‘It takes 20 seconds to break into a house but it took me an hour to unbolt this sign." Later, at an amateur night, the manager told him the sign bit was hysterical but jokes about the school weren't going to work for the regular audience. "So I went home and thought up more visual jokes, coming up with props like high heels with training wheels for young girls."


After getting his degree in marketing, Carrot Top worked as a courier for a bank while honing his act. But after his first full year as a comic ("I used the name ‘Carrot Top' because it was the only thing people used to call me that you can say on TV"), he quit out of frustration attempting to break into clubs. His car was finally repossessed and he took jobs delivering bread, cleaning office buildings, and even shucking oysters. A year later he ran into a club owner who said, "What do you mean you're not doing comedy?" He offered Carrot Top his club's New Years Eve gig in 1987. "I forgot just how much fun this is and that I could do it," says Carrot Top.

In 1990, he had his first booking outside Florida. That North Carolina show led to a club owner/talent manager to set him up nearly every weekend at clubs across the country. His first TV appearance was on "Comic Strip Live". "That made me feel legit – I can come to California and do this?" In 1992, he did his first turn on "The Tonight Show"…and there have been more than two dozen since. Carrot Top was also doing colleges and soon he was the top comedian on campus. Who else would have Metallica singing Britney Spears? Or the B-52s as Metallica? Or morph from Michael Jackson to Bono to Steven Tyler? When industry people would ask if he was going to drag around a trunk full of props the rest of his life, he'd answer, "Would you ask a rock band that? These are my guitars and amps. My props are my instruments. But still no one was saying I'd be around 15 years later."

But what audiences have seen on hundreds of TV programs – from "Regis and…", "Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher", Comedy Central's "Strip Mall", "Carrot Top's A.M. Mayhem" on the Cartoon Network, ESPN commercials, and the American Movie Classics presentation of Three Stooges shorts, as well as the movies Chairman Of The Board, Dennis The Menace Strikes Again, and others – is only the manic part of Carrot Top.

"I'm always with people when I'm on the road so I'm pretty quiet when I'm not Carrot Top," he admits. "I stay to myself, go to the gym, watch sports, surf and jet-ski or work at home (he lives in both Los Angeles and Orlando). I like what I do. I like to make people feel good about themselves so I tell jokes in public." Two of his favorite comedians are Robin Williams and Steve Martin, along with Carlin and Winters. Williams first came to public attention playing a space alien and Martin by wearing a fake-arrow-through-his-head. That both have since achieved the heights of acclaim offers him role models for his own future.

"Everyone has the gift of laughter inside of them. All the world is a prop," he has said. In the end, Carrot Top is his ultimate invention – his ultimate prop.
