Carrot Top has been making audiences laugh with his trunks of comedic props for well over two decades.
Yet his stage show has evolved significantly since he first started entertaining crowds while he was a high school freshman in Florida.
On Sunday, the man born Scott Thompson returns to the State Theatre in Easton, which will mark his 10th visit to the venue and his first since 2005.
"It's been a long time since we have been in Easton and we are looking forward to it," Carrot Top said in an email interview.
Earlier this week, Carrot Top took time out for a brief question-and-answer session, in which he touched on his Las Vegas residency, numerous television appearances and which prop still makes him laugh the most:
Q.) How much has your show evolved since you first started developing it back in high school?
A.) Completely. It went from basic stand-up to a full multimedia experience: smoke machines, video, lighting, you name it.
Q.) What do you enjoy most about performing that keeps you motivated?
A.) The actual act of doing it. I never thought I would it this far or for this long, so it make you appreciate it every day.
Q.) How do Las Vegas crowds differ, if it all, from being on the road?
A.) Vegas crowds are totally different since it's a mixture of people from all over the world; all age groups. It's a complete spectrum. When I tour, it's fun because people are making a night out of it. So I think it makes it special.
Q.) Out of the countless props you have pulled out of your trunk, what is the one are you most proud of and/or still cracks you up the most?
A.) The Wendy's prop is classic. People still remember it and request it.
Q.) If you could go back in time, is there any part of your career you would differently?
A.) Maybe I would have stayed in L.A. longer than I did but I was out doing shows constantly, which ultimately has led to my success. So looking back, I'm not sure I would change much. I have been very lucky.
Q.) What have you learned the most from being a professional comedian?
A.) It is a more powerful job than I thought. You never know who needed to laugh. I always get letters from fans explaining that they were going through something tough in their real life and coming to my show to just get away from it was exactly what they needed.
Q.) Out of your various television appearances, from Space Ghost Coast to Coast to Gene Simmons Family Jewels, which is your personal favorite?
A.) My first Tonight Show appearance. The Tonight Show made comics feel like they had made it.
Q.) Given the current political climate, does that make it easier or harder to come up with new material and potential prop fodder?
A.) It's always been the same. We always have pop culture but I'm not much of a political comic. i touch on it, but for the most part, I think people are coming to escape that stuff.
Q.) What is left to check off on the Carrot Top bucket list?
A.) Maybe my own TV series one day, a way I can be creative outside of my show. More movies would be fun, too.
