Comedy star heads to The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa

TULSA, Okla. — Scott “Carrot Top” Thompson, known for his trademark red locks and inventive use of props, will perform his first-ever show at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa on March 14.

Tickets start at $29.50 and go on sale Dec. 27.

Carrot Top has been making audiences around the world laugh for more than three decades. Since his debut on “Star Search” 25 years ago, the comedian has become one of the most recognizable entertainers in the world.

Thompson got his start as a student at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida during his freshman year, when he went to a club and saw live standup comedy for the first time. His roommate convinced him to sign up at an open mic night a few months later and after a handful of nerve-wracking first performances, he had caught the comedy bug.

Since 2005, fans have flocked to Carrot Top’s Las Vegas headlining residency at Luxor Hotel and Casino to catch his current take on pop culture, music and headlines of the day in a continually evolving show. With a dozen trucks filled with approximately 200 props on stage each night, audience members can count on not seeing the same show twice.

After building a following on the comedy circuit, his first television appearance was on “Comic Strip Live” in 1991. Things changed for Carrot Top forever in 1992 with his first appearance on “The Tonight Show.” That appearance exposed his unique brand of comedy to every home in America. After an impressive 31 appearances, Carrot Top had the distinct honor of appearing on the very last episode of “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” Carrot Top’s other credits include hundreds of TV programs including “Live with Regis and Kelly,” “Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher,” “The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels,” “Chelsea Lately,” “Last Comic Standing,” “Criss Angel – Mindfreak” and more. He also starred in ESPN commercials, served as spokesman for 1-800-CALL-ATT and also starred in his own movies like “Chairman of the Board” and “Dennis the Menace Strikes Again.” Most recently, he appeared in “Sharknado: The 4th Awakens,” “The Hangover,” and the Trailer Park Boys’ film “Swearnet: The Movie.”
