Carrot Top celebrates 17 anniversary at Luxor Hotel and Casino

23 November 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Last night, Carrot Top celebrated his 17th anniversary at Luxor Hotel and Casino, making him the longest-running headlining comedian in Las Vegas.

Since opening in 2005, Carrot Top has performed close to 4,000 shows for over one million guests, attracting fans from around the world and celebrities including Queen, Sting, Amy Poehler, Hannah Einbinder, Vince Neil, Nicolas Cage, Tracy Lawrence, Anderson .Paak, Gene Simmons and many others.

Scott “Carrot Top” Thompson has been making audiences around the world laugh for more than three decades. As one of the most recognizable and iconic comedic entertainers, the King of Props induces sidesplitting laughter with his current take on pop culture, music, and headlines of the day in a continually evolving show. 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.”

Since his debut on “Star Search,” Carrot Top has soared to success. “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.” After building a following on the comedy circuit that made people laugh nearly every weekend, his first television appearance was on “Comic Strip Live” in 1991. Things changed for Carrot Top forever in 1992 with his first appearance on “The Tonight Show.” That appearance exposed his unique brand of comedy to every home in America. After an impressive 31 appearances, Carrot Top had the distinct honor of appearing on the very last episode of “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” A Las Vegas headliner for more than 25 years, Carrot Top can be seen nightly in Las Vegas or in a city near you, giving guests 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.

Carrot Top’s other credits include hundreds of television programs including “Live with Regis and Kelly,” “Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher,” “The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” “Late Night With Conan O’Brien,” “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels,” “Chelsea Lately,” “Last Comic Standing,” “Criss Angel - Mindfreak,” “Tom Green Live,” “The Neighbors,” “The Jim Gaffigan Show,” “Tosh.O,” “Glee,” “Family Guy,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Oprah Winfrey Network’s “Where Are They Now?,” ESPN commercials, and as spokesman for 1-800-CALL-ATT. Carrot Top also starred in his own movies “Chairman of the Board” and “Dennis the Menace Strikes Again.” Most recently, he appeared in “Sharknado: The 4th Awakens,” “The Hangover,” and the Trailer Park Boys’ film “Swearnet: The Movie.” Carrot Top can also be heard on top rated podcasts “The Joe Rogan Experience” and “The Adam Carolla Show,” receiving praise for his performances and engaging in discussion of how he became a pop-culture comedic icon.

Carrot Top performs Monday through Saturday at 8 p.m. in the Atrium Showroom at Luxor Hotel and Casino.
