Me and a friend, huge Bill Hicks fans both, and himself a former comedian, both admitted that we find Carrot Top funny.
It’s not necessarily cutting edge funny. It’s not life changing funny. It’s not brave funny, but it’s funny. I’ve always loved his routine about looking like the flagship of the Wendy’s chain.
I’m not sure what percentage of completely guilty pleasure non-sense comedy you are allowed to covet and still be hip. I’ve met plenty of people whose percentage aims to be at 100%. I never have much respect for them, but universally they all seem happier than me. So what do I know?
