Carrot Top - Part 1
Show Notes

This week we are joined by Scott Thompson, known to the entire world as the hilarious and wildly entertaining comedian Carrot Top! A thirty year veteran of comedy, Carrot Top has become the iconic "King of Props" with an always-evolving, insightful act including keen observations of the world of pop culture. He has been delivering a powerhouse of a show headlining in Las Vegas for 25 years, including his ongoing residency at at the Luxor Hotel since 2005.

Scott was as nice as could be, and talked with Mark and Lowell for two hours. In this first installation, they cover many topics including Scott's start in comedy at a college open mic night, working with his NASA engineer father on developing props, doing hundreds of TV shows and talk shows including "The Tonight Show" an incredible 31 times, and how he might have quit comedy early on if it weren't for a few kind words from some fans while he was working at a restaurant.
