This guy actually scares me. I remember flinching in disgust when I first saw Carrot Top on the AT&T commercials. “Him?!” I thought, and groaned. And then I leaned in a little closer to see if what I thought was seeing was true….does he was his eyebrows? Is that make up? While he is repulsing me, others must love him because the guy gets gigs. And he’s a recurring act in Las Vegas. Apparently he’s a prop comic who loves poking fun at celebs, pop culture icons, and red necks among others. I haven’t seen this show at the MGM, and I’m not sure if I will, but that doens’t mean you shouldn’t. Hey, maybe you’ve already seen “Carrot Top: Rocks Las Vegas” on DVD. Whatever makes you laugh. I’m going to go back to reading Rob Walker’s article about Carrot Top on Slate….then I won’t feel so alone in my confusion about this natural red.
