carrot top
« on: September 19, 2021, 12:03:55 AM »
i just googled carrot top because i realised i'd only ever seen references to how unfunny he was, so i watched some of his stuff on youtube. i thought it was quite entertaining to be honest. that's it. i don't have anything else to add about carrot top.

I also have no idea what his stuff is actually like, just people mocking him, so I also assumed he was not funny at all. Can I guess that part of the reason you were curious was Norm's joke about him being Box-Office Poison?

I just spent five minutes watching him, on YOUR recommendation. Awful rubbish.

It’s the stand-up equivalent of spray can cheese as far as I’m concerned, but good on him for carving out his weird niche whilst his artistic forebear Gallagher drowns unloved in his own bitterness.

everyone laments the lack of craft in modern comedy and there's carrot top gluing a rivet to a steering wheel and going "it's a screwdriver". anyone who says that isn't funny has no love in their heart and deserves nothing better than to die alone as far as I'm concerned

Yeah that's right - in about 2008. What I like you couldn't comprehend. Get back to your Michael McIntyre DVDs

I don't really know what level of irony you're operating on today, but I've watched both a recent and old vid of him and he's one of the unfunniest people I've ever watched.

Craft? He pulls up a prop and makes a lame observational comment about it disguised a joke:

"Hahaha here's half a tennis racket cos Andre Agassi got divorced and now has to play with half a tennis racket cos his wife has half his stuff from the settlement. Divorce funni."
"Lol this stake your supposed to drive into the ground and attach a dog leash to is sold without instructions, so here's one I put through a stuffed toy to demonstrate what impossibly stupid people might think it's for."

I'll give him some points for having an uncommon shtick, but break it down and it's Family Guy levels of humour. "I showed you something, laugh at it."

The problem with Carrot Top, when you think about it, and really delve into what he's doing, is that he's fucking shit.

I've always been impressed at how he makes those props. I remember seeing him on that show Last Comic Standing (as a special guest not a contestant) and I thought he was hilarious, but I was about 13 at the time. Might just leave him there in my head.

Stew Lee talks affectionately of the 1980s in Edinburgh where there were only a few dozen comedians and one was called the Iceman, whose act consisted of melting ice if I remember correctly.

Gallagher smashed a watermelon and made millions. Michael McIntyre had a man drawer and made more. I have grudging respect for someone who can go on stage and can make many times what I will make in my lifetime. Stand up comedy was a complete racket until a few decades ago. Still is for loads of people. It's basically an avenue to telly and films these days.

how about this, carrot top starts his act coughing a little then coughs into his hands and produces a small toy frog before saying "excuse me; frog in my throat"

dont pretend you didn't laugh.

All I know about Carrot Top is that he provided one of the DVD commentaries for the film The Rules Of Attraction.[1]

Yeah, I think he's stupidly funny, and I admire his total commitment to relentless jokes. Obviously influenced Tim Vine's prop humour.

Has a reputation for being a nice guy who's great with his staff and fans. A lot of US comedians admire him, and them taking the piss out of him is a running joke. Even George Carlin liked him.

A couple of months ago he posted a video on Instagram where his dick was hanging out of his shorts the whole time.

That's a bit of a stretch, Carrot Top didn't invent prop comedy. Carrot Top is like Tim Vine without the charm.
