Carrot Top Entertains with Mile a Minute Jokes & Props

Carrot Top? Is he still around? Oh yes, he certainly is. It had been years since I had see this master of prop comedy at work so it was time to go the the Luxor and exercise my funny bone. Would he be as good as I remembered? Yes. This fiftish year old comic is better than ever. And still topped by that trademark red orange hair. And while the props are sometimes funny, sometimes hilarious, its not just about the props. This is a seasoned performer with a sense of timing, an ability to read his audience, and an attitude that suggests that he is letting you in on the joke.

Be sure to get there early enough to watch the videos. Of course if you don't like watching people crash into walls, ignite themselves by accident or you don't care for videos of animals endeavoring to procreate, then, well, then maybe pick another show. If you like some over the line crazy ouch I'm glad it isn't me comedy, then head on over to this 8 p.m. Show a few minutes early to be sure to catch the video warm up.

Rob Sherwood, the opening act, warms us up with his take on everything from gambling to porn to kids in Vegas. He is both charismatic and biting as he gives his comedically slanted opinions on the subject of life in Vegas.

And then there is the man himself. And his trunks lining the stage behind him. Nothing is sacred. One minute its the Amish, the next moment the subject is halloween and fat kids, then breast feeding, and A-Rod's baseball bat. Rosie O'Donnell at a buffet, Hugh Heffner. I know, you want to read some of the jokes, some of them can't be written where the kids might see them. But are they funny!

The the thing is that this guy is like a machine gun, boom, boom, boom, if you didn't like one, there's another two seconds later. The odds are that you'll like most of them. And there are enough subjects out there for the jokes. Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, and Britney Spears. Elton John and Michael Jackson, rap songs. The list goes on.

Besides what shoots out of Carrot Top's fast moving mouth, this is a well put together production. The sound effects, the lighting, the staging, the star transversing the stage to give both sides a chance to see him up closer. And if that wasn't enough, there's the break for Crown Royal. Into the audience he goes with little paper cups and a bottle of the high end drink, pouring shots for his audience members.

This is not a show for the kids. But if you want to laugh, then venture to the strip to that crazy piece of architecture they call the Luxor and see Carrot Top's 8 p.m. Show nightly except Tuesdays.
