• I know that I go by "Carrot Top" and I have big hair and I do props and I'm kind of silly. Of course, for these guys who write jokes for these shows [like The Daily Show (1996)] I'm an easy target. I keep that in the back of my head. I don't think it's the props, because I sure haven't invented prop comedy. I think it's the fact that I do something different and that I actually have some success with it. That bothers a lot of people, especially comics. Comics don't like to see other comics do well. It's our nature: Human beings like success but they hate successful people. But some of the jabs are kind of funny, like on King of the Hill (1997) when the kid wanted to be Celery Head. I found it kind of flattering. But Craig Kilborn was just rotten.
  • Younger in life I was always kind of quiet and shy and I think I kind of grew into myself as I got older, I became more of a class clown as I got to junior high. My way of fitting in was through jokes and making people laugh. I wasn't the jock (I know, it's hard to tell) or the good-lookin' stud. I was just a very skinny red-headed freckled guy. My way of making people like me was to make 'em laugh.
