262 Carrot Top

I have been friends with Carrot Top since 1986 when he first starting coming around to open mic nights in Orlando, Florida.

One of my happiest memories with my Dad was watching Carrot Top's show at the MGM with him and I'll never forget how hard my Dad laughed at him.

Carrot Top's Dad worked at Nasa and grew up in Cocoa Beach which might be where he got his inventive mind for comedy and the gadgets he has created.

I have always loved and respected Scott (Carrot Top) because he is a joke writing machine and in the immortal words of Jim Gaffigan "When I hear people make fun of Carrot Top I feel like they have insulted a family member, because he is a comedian and he is a part of my family."

In this episode we talk about our Central Florida roots, his private jet ride with Jay Leno, his friendships with Vinnie Paul and Axel Rose, meeting presidents, what is was like to kiss Elton John and the endearing words he received from Bill Hicks as well as the joy of getting to know George Carlin.

He also describes in detail what it was like in Las Vegas on the night of the deadliest mass shooting in American history.

That shooting happened right next door to the Luxor where he performs his show nightly. During this recording you can hear in the back ground at times, Las Vegas show girls running back stage for a costume change and the thumping music that they perform to. It is classic Las Vegas American show business in action.

He is one of my oldest friends in comedy and someone I have infinite love and respect for and that is why it is my pleasure to present to you now the one and only Carrot Top!
