The Simpsons has been on TV for what? 30 some years? To compare it to that is not an insult, what The Simpsons is doing obviously works.
I never said I didn't enjoy it and I never compared it to the Simpsons.

If you're going to dissect a post, at least do it right.

You may benefit from an English composition course. It's fairly elementary so it should help you a great deal:

I've seen him 2 or 3 times. I like his show.

You literally said "If you are fine with Homer Simpson type humor you will have a blast."

How is that not comparing Carrot Top to the Simpsons?

And stating that his show appeals to "dumb people" certainly implies you did not enjoy the show/you were not one of those that would...unless you are lumping yourself in with "the masses?" (aka "dumb people")

Maybe you should spend less time trying to insult others and more time dissecting your own posts.

I see from your response you did not take on that course on English composition

My apologies, I feel like I have failed you once again

It's not something I would watch multiple times, though.
One of the parts of his act is he jokes about having to do math on Star Search to figure out whether he won or lost when they gave the totals at the end.

There isn't a bad seat and they sell drinks, popcorn and everything else. He has like 4 or 5 billboards within with a 4 to 5 mile of the strip. It truly is amazing how much billing he gets. One is across from the World's Largest Gift Shop.

I don't understand why people go see him.
He just pulls stuff out of a box, goes "ha ha this is funny" and throws it to get another thing from the box.
It's funny for about 2 minutes and then it's just rehashing.

But the great thing about vegas is there's about a million people a week filtering through. You only need a fraction of a percent to come to your show to sell out every night.

As lame as Carrot Top is, he's miles better than Chris Angel. I have no idea how he made it as far as he has. he is absolutely terrible. Apparently his show is him talking about himself, showing a youtube video of himself, and then more talking til the next youtube video. Why would you pay to see that guy when you have real performers like Penn and Teller or Mac King here?

Yes, it was fun to see the he talk about his Star Search days. I like that they encourage you to bring in outside drinks. A lot of shows won't allow that. He also does hands out shots of Crown Royal to the first couple of rows. If I was sitting just 2 seats more to the left I would have gotten one

Actually O, she’s quite right. Perhaps it is you who should take another look at your English composition.

On topic, Carrot Top was quite funny in his early stand up years. I was able to see him at a live show before anyone knew him by name. Now, with those ridiculous muscles and plucked eyebrows, he’s just a bit too weird for me. When I see him at the grocery store, I stare, as if I were a little kid with no manners.
