LAS VEGAS (December 7, 2015) – After an unprecedented 10-year r un, Luxor Hotel and Casino has announced a five-year contract renewal with world-renowned comedian Scott “Carrot Top” Thompson who will continue his hit Las Vegas show through 2020. With three decades of comedic performance in his rear view mirror, Carrot Top is one of the most popular, recognizable and successful comedians in America and now with the extension of his headlining residency, he has cemented his role as a Las Vegas icon as well.
“Carrot Top has been wowing crowds at Luxor since 2005 and we’re excited to ‘prop’erly extend his residency for the next five years,” said Luxor General Manager Nik Rytterstrom, “By keeping his material current, he remains a must-see for locals and visitors to The Strip.”
Carrot Top’s successful and storied career has allowed him to develop a completely unique genre of comedy that is self-explained as a combination of George Carlin (for his “observational humor”), Steven Wright (for his “dark, sick humor”), and Gallagher (for his use of props). Utilizing that one-of-a-kind style, the resident show is ever-evolving and has become a Las Vegas staple, reflecting current headlines, consistently poking fun at pop culture, politics and music.
 
“Being able to call Las Vegas home for the past 10 years has been an incredible experience that has allowed me to explore and expand my comedy as well as put down roots in this great city,” said Carrot Top, “I consider myself very fortunate to have had this opportunity and look forward to many more years of making people laugh here at Luxor.”
 
Carrot Top performs six nights a week inside the Atrium Showroom. For tickets or more information please visit Carrottop.com
