Scott Thompson (born February 25, 1965), better known by his stage name Carrot Top, is an American comedian known for his bright red hair, prop comedy and self-deprecating humor.
Thompson lived in Cocoa, Florida during part of his youth. In 1983, he graduated from Cocoa High School and enrolled later that year at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. While still a freshman at Florida Atlantic, he appeared in his first stand-up comedy routine with Josh Abelson. Two months later, he performed on campus at an open-mic night.

Career

Carrot Top has appeared in the television programs: Larry the Cable Guy's Christmas Spectacular , Gene Simmons Family Jewels, Space Ghost Coast To Coast, Criss Angel Mindfreak, Scrubs (2006), and Tugger: The Jeep 4x4 Who Wanted to Fly (2005). His movie roles include the 1998 film Chairman of The Board, and he also served as a spokesman in commercials for 1-800-CALL-ATT. In 2002, he recorded a commentary track for the Roger Avary film The Rules of Attraction. In 2006, Carrot Top appeared in the Reno 911! episode "Weigel's Pregnant" as an enraged version of himself who trashed his hotel room, resisted arrest and stole a police car. In 2008, he was a guest judge for NBC's Last Comic Standing in a contest where the participants had to perform prop comedy at a Bed, Bath and Beyond, using store items with only an hour to prepare.

From 1995 to 1999, Carrot Top was the continuity announcer for Cartoon Network, for which he also produced and starred in an early morning show on called Carrot Top's AM Mayhem for two years (1994–96).

Carrot Top has also been frequently parodied. Such examples include Mr. Show (in which David Cross appears as "Blueberry Head"), King of the Hill ("Celery Head"), Family Guy ("Carrot Scalp"; he also made a guest appearance on the show as himself in the episode "Petergeist"), South Park ("Carrot Ass") and MADtv ("Broccoli Top").

As of 2010 he headlines at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas, and performs various comedy gigs when his show is not playing. The hotel proclaims him as "Comedian of the Year." His comedy routine incorporates dozens of props stored in large trunks on stage; his prop jokes commonly consist simply of him pulling out a prop, describing it in a one-liner, and tossing it away. Many of his props are specially built objects, such as a miniature grandfather clock necklace he used to poke fun at Flavor Flav's age.

On January 16, 2010, Carrot Top appeared on the Fox reality game show Don't Forget The Lyrics! where he assisted illusionists Penn & Teller in their quest for the million-dollar grand prize. He was also one of the roasters at the Comedy Central Roast of Flavor Flav and Gene Simmons Roast. He appeared on an episode in Season Two of Mind Freak and has been a regular guest on the show every season since. He also appeared in an episode of the reality series The Bad Girls Club.

Carrot Top has appeared on numerous nighttime television talk shows. On February 8, 2010, he appeared on an episode of The Jay Leno Show, where he had pies thrown at him by Leno and guest Emma Roberts.

Biography courtesy of Wikipedia

"Younger in life I was always kind of quiet and shy and I think I kind of grew into myself as I got older, I became more of a class clown as I got to junior high. My way of fitting in was through jokes and making people laugh. I wasn't the jock (I know, it's hard to tell) or the good-lookin' stud. I was just a very skinny red-headed freckled guy. My way of making people like me was to make 'em laugh."

Carrot Top's father, Larry Thompson, was a rocket scientist that worked on the Gemini and Apollo missions.
