At the peak of his college life he got the chance to go on stage with Josh Abelson. The pair of comedians and their act didn’t really become popular because of repulsive and unpleasant jokes. But after a couple of months had passed Carrot Top put in the work and came up with a script about his college life that would eventually make the audiences see what his humour is truly like.
After a while Carrot Top became a hit all across college campuses in the United States.
After finishing college and getting a degree in marketing he got a job as a bank courier. Even though he got a full time job he didn’t stop performing and kept getting more and more popular because of his crazy humour. In 1990 he quit his job because he wanted to dedicate himself to becoming a full-fledged comedian.
The stand-up comedy field of work was very competitive so to stand out he decided to use props in his comedy acts. And the props he used matched both his personality and his flamboyant looks. He would often use paper cups and string as a telephone which sounds silly but it definitely worked and made his comedy acts even better, but most importantly it made him stand out. In 1992 he got an invitation to “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” which rocketed his career even further.
After all the popularity and fame he had accumulated over the years he started getting a lot of opportunities to work on TV shows like “Larry the Cable Guy’s Christmas Spectacular”. For a couple of years, from 1995 to 1999 to be exact, he worked for Cartoon Network as an announcer. As time passed his career became even more successful and there were no limits to his comedy.

In 1994 he started producing his own show called “Carrot Top’s AM Mayhem”, which ended in 1996. He also had a small stint In Hollywood, his first movie was “Hourglass”. Another movie he did and was quite popular was “Chairman of The Board”. He also did a commercial for AT&T which of course brought him even more fame.
