Carrot Top Las Vegas Review: A Must-See Comedian

If you’re looking for a comical relief from all the gambling and bright lights in Las Vegas, then look no further than Carrot Top (view tickets)!

In my opinion, Carrot Top has one of the best shows in Las Vegas. He’s been entertaining audiences for years with his clever observations while he unpacks trunk loads of goofy props.

He’s just as funny as ever in his residency show at the Luxor. Keep reading for my full review of Carrot Top’s Las Vegas show.

Carrot Top Review

4.2/5

Pros

  • Hilarious Prop Comedy: There’s a reason Carrot Top has been headlining Las Vegas since 2005. He’s the most famous prop comic in the world, and his unique brand of humor keeps audiences coming back for more.
  • A Hidden Gem: Many who attended Carrot Top’s show are surprised at how funny it was.
  • Tickets Are Reasonable: It’s hard to find good shows under $100 in Vegas, but Carrot Top’s show starts at just $50.

Cons

  • Old Material: Jokes are meant to be repeated, so it’s no surprise that you’ll hear familiar jokes from Carrot Top. That isn’t unusual with comedy shows; just something to keep in mind.
  • Get Good Seats: When selecting your seat for the theater, avoid the very outer edge. You’ll want to be close enough to see some of the punchlines. Some attendees complain about being unable to see the props.

Bottom Line

Carrot Top is one of the funniest comedians around, and his live show at Luxor is not to be missed. His unique prop comedy and stand-up will have you laughing until your sides hurt. When selecting your seat for the theater, avoid the very outer edge, and you’ll want to be close enough to see some of the punchlines.

If you want to laugh until you cry, you have to check out Carrot Top’s 2022 show at the Luxor Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Fast-paced and unique, Carrot Top’s comedy show has been around since 2005 and is not going away anytime soon—and for a good reason.

Carrot Top Las Vegas is an award-winning show that guests new and old keep guests coming back to experience again and again.

With witty and sometimes raunchy jokes, this show is one of the most popular in all of Vegas. 

Whether you’re a Vegas local or only in town for the weekend, you don’t want to miss it. This show is meant for those looking for a memorable Las Vegas experience that will keep you recounting jokes for years to come.

Carrot Top Had Me Howling

I love stand up comedy. There’s something magical about a group of people laughing together and enjoying the crafted jokes of a comic.

I went to see Carrot Top perform at Luxor on a weeknight. I grabbed a reasonably priced beer and walked into the Atrium Showroom.

The theater was pretty full. My seats were near the back, but I was sitting center stage with a clear view.

The show opened with another comic doing about a 15-minute routine. Most of the material was clever and funny.

It warmed up the crowd. Then Carrot Top was introduced.

He started his set and dove right into his treasure chest of props. Immediately the crowd was howling.

It became clear that Carrot Top was on a different talent level than other comics.

Carrot Top is known for his creative props, and he did not disappoint. His material ranged from current events (it was an election year) to irreverent jokes to silly observations.

After the show, I made a quick stop at Diablo’s Cantina for a margarita as my wife and I shared our favorite jokes.

I would highly recommend Carrot Top to any fan of comedy. He’s a little wacky, a little off-color, but he’s very funny. It’s one of the best shows in Vegas and my favorite comedy show in town.

Considering tickets start at $50, it’s an affordable Vegas show.

Comparing Las Vegas Comedy Shows

There are a lot of great standup comedians that perform across Las Vegas. Carrot Top is the only resident comedian in Las Vegas at the the moment. Here are three comedy clubs on The Strip I would recommend considering:

Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club

Tickets from $55

Brad Garrett's Comedy Club

Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club at MGM Grand is a classic intimate comedy club. Brad Garrett makes occasional appearances.

Top Features:

  • Expensive Tickets
  • Classic Comedy Club
  • 60-70 Minutes Long

Laugh Factory Las Vegas

Tickets from $45

Laugh Factory Las Vegas Review

The Laugh Factory at Tropicana features headliners and touring comics with reasonably priced drinks.

Top Features:

  • Reasonably Priced Tickets
  • Good Atmosphere
  • 70 Minutes

LA Comedy Club

Tickets from $30

LA Comedy Club Las Vegas Review

LA Comedy Club at The STRAT is a great room with an affordable ticket and optional $25 all-you-can-drink offer.

Top Features:

  • Affordable Tickets
  • $25 All-You-Can-Drink Special
  • 60-75 Minutes

If you purchase tickets in advance, you can see Carrot Top for about $50. The first club I’d recommend is slightly more expensive. Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club at MGM Grand offers a classic comedy club vibe with great touring comics.

The other two clubs I would consider are the Laugh Factory at Tropicana and LA Comedy Club at The STRAT. Both of these rooms bring in good talent and are more affordable options than Carrot Top or Brad Garrett’s place.

Who Is Carrot Top?

Scott Thompson, also known as Carrot Top, is an award-winning American comedian with decades of stand-up comedy experience.

Scott Thompson, also known as Carrot Top performing.

He earned the nickname “Carrot Top” from his swimming coach growing up. The name is about his signature unruly red hair that’s become a staple for the comedian.

The nickname stuck with him in the years to come and carried over to his first stand-up comedy performance in South Florida while attending Florida Atlantic University.

Fast forward to 2022, and Carrot Top is a name synonymous with comedy.

He’s appeared in several TV programs, movies, performed in thousands of shows on the Las Vegas Strip, and is known for his red locks and unconventional comedic acts.

What Is the Show Like?

There are many things about Carrot Top that make him stand out from other comedic acts. Most notably is his use of homemade props.

This comedian is known to bring out large trunks on the stage during his performance, where he stores dozens of funky and hilarious props he uses to enhance his act.

From oddball inventions Carrot Top makes himself to popular fad items like the Shake Weight, the props are only more funny by Carrot Top’s cheeky humor.

If you’re skeptical about prop-related humor, you’ve never given Carrot Top’s 2022 show a chance. He combines his humorous props with perfectly-timed delivery of his silly, witty, and sometimes even raunchy jokes.

His jokes center around music, pop culture, politics, and other current events. His unique comedy genre has a little bit of something for everyone who comes to Carrot Top’s Las Vegas 2022 experience. 

Don’t expect Carrot Top to stand still on stage. Like the rest of his act, the comedian takes a different approach to stand-up comedy with his enthusiastic and contagious energy.

This high-energy coupled with fast-paced movements and stomach-cramping jokes mean there is never a slow moment during the 75-minute show. 

Time will fly by during this show, and you’ll leave feeling both satisfied and like you want more. Don’t worry. This comedic act is scheduled several days a week, so you may have time to catch it again during your time on The Strip.

Where Is the Show?

Carrot Top’s 2022 show is located on the Las Vegas Strip inside the Luxor Hotel & Casino in the Atrium Showroom. 

The Luxor’s Atrium comfortably seats 350+ guests and hosts some of the most popular shows on The Strip. It’s located above the casino portion of the hotel on the second floor and is pretty easy to locate once you arrive inside the Luxor.

Want to know how to get there?

Just follow the beaming light in the sky visible from just about anywhere on The Strip until you come across the famous pyramid-like structure of the Luxor Hotel & Casino.

Walking Directions:

If you’re walking to this MGM property from somewhere else on the strip, head into the main entrance, where you’ll enter the main lobby area. Locate the escalators and take them up to the second floor. Once you make it to the second floor, continue walking straight. You should see the Atrium Theater entrance lit up on your left-hand side.

Driving Directions:

If you’re driving to the Luxor and need to park your car in the garage, how you get to the Atrium will look slightly different. After you park, walk across the walkway that leads to the hotel and casino. Once you make your way inside, head up the escalators to the Food Court. That Atrium lies just on the other side of the Food Court.

Who Can Go?

There are age restrictions in place for those under 18 years of age. You must be at least 16 years old and accompanied by an adult to attend, and all guests must show proof of a valid ID.

So, if you’re traveling with young ones, then this experience may not be the most family-friendly.

Ticket Buying Advice

Venues will often say, “There’s no bad seat in the house,” at Carrot Top’s Las Vegas show. This is almost true. Avoid the outer seats and sit as close to the center as your budget allows.

Ticket prices vary depending on how close you’d like to sit to the stage. While the front row is up close and personal, it’s not necessary if you’re looking for a less expensive ticket option.

One of the benefits of buying a front row seat is the possibility of interaction with the comedian himself—who said anything about his props always staying on the stage?
