For over 34 years, Scott Thompson has been making audiences laugh. But he is better known as Carrot Top.
Titled “Comedian and Entertainer of the Year,” the Las Vegas resident has made his home at the Atrium Showroom at the Luxor Hotel and Casino for the last 15 years, making his hit show one of the longest running hotel/casino residencies on the Strip.
From his early days on Star Search through his 33 appearances on the Tonight Show, the wacky red-headed, mop top is always updating his material. He keeps his audience in stitches as he unpacks trunk loads of crazy props and ingenious inventions, while utilizing music and video to keep you rolling in the aisles.
Sharp and witty dialogue with the crowd makes each performance fresh and different. From Rosie O’Donnell to Mike Tyson, no one is beyond the grasp of CT’s humor. Music, fun, and even a cocktail poured by the man himself and shared with dozens of fans in attendance makes this show intimate and unique.

Seasoned comic Rob Sherwood warms up the crowd and meet and greets are available with exciting goodie bags. He just signed a five-year contract extension at the Vegas property, so if you have not seen Carrot Top, I highly recommend it. The show’s dark on Sundays.
We all know of his historical characters on Saturday Night Live, his hysterical movies, and his hit Netflix show. Rob Schneider oozes comedy. Several times a year, the funnyman brings his stand-up to the South Point Hotel and Casino here in Las Vegas.
This past week, in front of a packed house in the Showroom at the property, the comedian had everyone in stitches. Politics, money, and being 50 were all topics he touched on. The roar of laughter filled the venue as he talked about family, fatherhood, and being a husband.
He too pulled out all the stops, throwing funny jabs at himself in comparison to the wealth and fame of his friends Adam Sandler, Chris Rock and David Spade, saying, “he is the poorest of his rich friends.”
Schneider brought a new version of his shtick. He had a jazz trio warm up the audience and then join him at the end of the show for his rendition of Frank Sinatra’s, “Fly Me To the Moon,” and hit it out of the park.
Normally, Schneider performs twice a year at the Strip resort, but I was told that due to a new project the comic is not going to return until 2021.
They say that stand-up comedy is the purest and hardest genre in entertainment. Well, no one does it better than the folks over at the Comedy Cellar.
The Comedy Cellar has now opened its first West Coast location here at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. “The Cellar,” as insiders call it, brings its unique vibe from the iconic, underground, Greenwich Village, “brick wall and stained glass,” low ceiling design and feel —to its new, intimate 300-seat club at Rio. Even the menu is entertaining,
Two shows a night, seven nights a week, you can see and experience a bill entirely comprised of headliners.
