Red-haired comedian Carrot Top has an estimated net worth of $42 million.
Carrot Top was born Scott Thompson on February 25, 1965. His standup career began to take off in the early 1990s, with multiple appearances on The Tonight Show and a successful run as a touring comedian. While Carrot Top probably did quite well financially in the 1990s and early 2000s, it wasn’t until he took on an extended residency in 2005 at the Luxor Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas that the money really started rolling in. Doing shows 6 days per week in a theater seating about 300, at an average of $60+ per seat, plus VIP “meet and greets” for an additional charge, it’s safe to say that Carrot Top is bringing in $4 million to $5 million per year from his Luxor gig, and has been doing so for over 12 years. Carrot Top also continues to do short tours outside of Vegas, usually sticking to the West Coast.
In addition to his standup work, Carrot Top has been in various movies, TV shows and advertisements over the years (usually appearing as himself), but this has been a much smaller piece of his career and likely has contributed only modestly to his net worth.
With a well-established career that now spans over 25 years and a good thing going at the Luxor, Carrot Top is likely to keep adding to his worth every time he pulls a new prop out of his trunk of tricks onstage.
