When Carrot Top comes out on stage there's no telling what crazy contraption he's going to pull out next, but classifying him as just a prop comic is an understatement. His wacky inventions are merely an extension of his outrageous and hilariously funny personality. While some jokes are based on items that he pulls from his prop trunks, others rely on his talent as a stand-up comedian and comical commentary on everything from tourists to NASCAR, celebrities and current events.He begins with talking about how when people come to Vegas they suddenly have urge to gamble on everything in sight."One time I lost $20 on a Coke machine," jokes Carrot Top.Then he introduces a few of his "inventions." "Here's an Amish hair dryer," says Carrot Top as he pulls out a long bendable tube that he has to blow out of and aim at his hair. Next he demonstrates a redneck baby carrier, which is actually a box of beer that has holes cut out of it to fit a baby's head and limbs.The red-haired comedian barely stops to take a breath as he transitions between frantically searching for a new prop and telling jokes. Before you know it the topic has changed from walking to the Excalibur to his last visit to the porn convention in Las Vegas."It takes an extra hour to walk around because your feet get stuck to the floor," jokes Carrot Top while people in the audience can't help but keel over laughing.Next he transitions to talking about athletes and pulls out a football helmet with a phallic attachment to demonstrate what one of his least favorite players should wear.His show is just as wild and crazy as his big hair and brightly colored tie-dyed T-shirt that he wears during his performance. What seems like a loud fashion statement for most people is mild in comparison to the comedian's uninhibited personality.Mid-way through the show, a bucket is lowered from the ceiling with what the comedian claims to be his "medicine." He pulls it out and reveals that his medicine is actually Crown Royal. Carrot Top pours a shot for himself and then a few more that he hands to people in the front rows while AC/DC's "Have a Drink on Me" plays in the background.You just never know what this crazy comedian is going to say or do next. At times it looks like not even he knows what's going to come out of his mouth, but he admits later on in the show that "A lot of this isn't for you. I'm just entertaining myself."However, the continuing laughter and buzz from audience members as they exit the theater and re-tell some of his jokes proves that he is doing much more than just that.-- By Caroline Fontein

Couch potatoes rejoice! There's now a reason (well five reasons, really) to turn off your TV and come to Vegas! Tune in to your favorite Las Vegas-based reality TV shows in person and possibly even meet the shows' stars on this tour, including "Tanked," "American Restoration," "Counting Cars," "Toy Shack" and "Pawn Stars."TV enthusiasts will spend 30 minutes at each stop, starting with Animal Planet's hit show "Tanked," which dives into the operations of the nation's largest aquarium manufacturing company, Acrylic Tank Manufacturing (ATM). Visit the 13,000-square-foot facility where brothers-in-law Wayde King and Brett Raymer create one-of-a-kind tanks including pyramids, kegs and cars for all sorts of clients, including casinos, churches and celebrities.Next you will experience some of the History Channel's most popular shows such as "Pawn Stars" spin-off "American Restoration," where metal artist Rick Dale, his teenage son and the staff at Rick's Restorations take rusty, old items like slot machines and gas carts and magically return them to their original luster. Cruise by "Pawn Stars" regular Danny Koker's automobile restoration and customization company, Count's Kustoms, home to the show "Counting Cars." And ogle collectible toys like vintage Hot Wheels and Transformers at The Toy Shack, owned by "Pawn Stars" toy expert Johnny Jiminez.Finally, visit the home of the History Channel's top-rated show, "Pawn Stars," featuring the family-run Gold and Silver Pawn Shop. You may even rub elbows with one of the show's stars such as Rick Harrison, Richard "Old Man" Harrison, Corey "Big Hoss" Harrison and Austin "Chumlee" Russell. The shop itself is packed with thousands of interesting items, from artwork by famous artists to Super Bowl rings.Note: The opportunity to meet and greet the shows' stars is not guaranteed. Inside tours depend upon filming schedule. Rick's Restorations is not included in the Sunday tour.

Great tour
PostedJune 16, 2013
This was a great tour to take seen all the places but kounts customs was doing a video shoot couldn't go in. The only downfall was all the people u see on tv were working in the back or away couldn't see any one on tv there except the one guy from tank show but visiting all the shops were cool. To bad you couldn't get a meet and greet from each one

Eddie Griffin doesn't just tell jokes, he has a message: Children are our future, God isn't religion and don't get a blow joke from a woman on speed, her chattering teeth won't do you any favors. Griffin doesn't hold anything back with his signature brand of "Comedy without a Condom."There's more to Griffin's jokes than amusement. They reflect his opinions on topics like race, religion, politics, fatherhood and being a pimp. Audiences at his R-rated show at the Rio leave with laugh lines on their faces and a better insight to the comedy veteran.With more than 30 years of performing on his resume, Griffin has no problem working the room. He talks to the audience while sipping a champagne drink he refers to as a "liquid blunt" and smoking cigarettes. Most of his jokes seem like prepared material, but he also demonstrates his talent for creating off-the-cuff comedy based on comments from the audience. Griffin doesn't spotlight people like  insult comics do, but he does address boisterous individuals who shout things out during the show. The intimate showroom means that even the seats in the back are close to the stage.Griffin got his start as a comedian when his cousin dared him to go on stage at a local comedy club. What was supposed to be only a three minute spot turned into a successful 45 minute on-the-spot stand-up comedy routine. Griffin realized his talent for performing in front of a live audience and purchased a one-way ticket to Los Angeles to pursue his dream.After only a month of performing in Los Angeles he became a regular headliner at the famed Comedy Store, doing impersonations and stand-up routines. Griffin's take on Andrew Dice Clay became particularly well known and landed him the opening slot on Dice's national tour and a part in his film "Dice Rules," released in 1991. Griffin also toured with Robert Townsend and The Dells in a 1991 music and comedy revue to promote Townsend's film "The Five Heartbeats."In 1992 Griffin appeared on "Russell Simmon's Def Comedy Jam" and the HBO special “One Night Stand.” The following year he recorded his comedy album, "Message in the Hat." He headlined his own special, "HBO Comedy Half-Hour: Eddie Griffin," in 1995. In 1999 he released another comedy album, "The Message," which featured both comedic and musical performances by Griffin along with Master P and Silkk the Shocker.Griffin has also had success as an actor. Some of his film credits include “The Last Boy Scout" (1991), “Coneheads” (1993) and “Jason's Lyric" (1994). He went on to star in his own comedy series, "Malcolm & Eddie," one of UPN's most successful and long-running sitcoms. It ran from 1996 - 2000.Afterwards, Griffin continued to land roles in films including: "Armageddon" (1998), "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo" (1999), "John Q" (2002), "Undercover Brother" (2002), "Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo" (2005), "Date Movie" (2006), and "Scary Movie 3" (2003).He starred alongside Eddie Murphy in the movie "Norbit" released in 2007. That same year he also starred in, wrote and executive produced his own comedy special, "Freedom of Speech." More recently he's appeared in "Highway" (2012) and "How Sweet It Is" (2013).More than anything Griffin lets the audiences at his shows know how much he loves performing. Making people laugh is a natural talent for Griffin, and getting paid for it is an opportunity the comic doesn't take for granted.--By Caroline Fontein
