From young age Carrot Top knew he wanted to be a comedian. As there aren’t any schools out there that teach comedy, he would often told jokes by standing in front of the mirror.
“I put together what I thought was an act, and I showed up.
Telling the Los Angeles Times in 1995, “When I started touring at the beginning of my career, I had two trunks and a strobe light,”
After a number of performances in shows like The Tonight Show and Regis & Kathie Lee, he was degraded by other comedians. Like Dom Irrera said, “I don’t consider him a stand-up. I consider him a joke.”
But this didn’t ruin Carrot Top’s self-esteem. He never spoke toxicitly of those who criticized his work. Instead, he always answered back with passion.
In speaking to Los Angeles Times in response to the criticism Carrot Too said,
“I think what I do is very creative and clever,”
“A lot of comics don’t look at it that way. [That issue] always comes up. It kind of eats at you after a while. Why are so many people bitter and jealous in this business? Everybody has their own style. If you went to the movies every week and everybody acted the same way Tom Cruise did, boy, wouldn’t that suck?”
One after the other performance, Carrot Top became a famous name in the industry. Even these days, there are some who don’t find his comedy appealing, but h\e has his fans who love what he does.
From the moment he first came on the stage until now, his personality has changed amazingly and the media started writing did a bunch of procedures on his face, body and that he was on steroids . Denying everything he claimed that he gained muscles by spending long hours at the gym.
“That’s 35 years of working out. Maybe five years ago, I decided I’d worked out enough,” Carrot Top told Esquire in 2015.
“I quit cold turkey. Didn’t go to the gym for maybe a year. Then I started running. That’s where I am now. I just kind of wanted a normal buildup.”
He lives in a 4,300 square feet house with an estimated net worth of around $70 million, with a swimming pool, three bedrooms, and two-and-a-half baths.
Whether one loves his style of comedy or not but one thing, that Carrot Top has made quite a career.
A soul that brings happiness on people’s faces.
