veggie tales


This is my husband with Carrot Top! My husband is the one with all of the clothes on and the glasses. Isn't he handsome? Check out the arms on the veggie-man! Thank you to everyone who voted for him. He had a wonderful time and it was a tremendous opportunity!

This was his Big Shot Opportunity!

He opened for Carrot Top at the Luxor in Vegas - holy shit!

He did a great job and I am so proud of him. If you'd like to see the video of his experience, click this link: Kare 11. Once you are into this site, scroll down to "Big Shot Live." That button will connect you to the Big Shot Live site. Then, look at the top of the page and you should see buttons that have the days of the week. Look for "Saturday/comedy." His video will be running this whole week. If you come to this later, his name is Rick Logan and he is the comedy winner for week #3.

... So, to make a long story a little shorter: he got to Hollywood, had a great night out in LA. The next day the producers of the show asked him to check out of his hotel room. They sent him on a plane to Vegas with the guy who books the talent for Jimmy Kimmel Live. He stood up on the plane full of strangers and did his whole set! (Just the thought of that makes me a little sick to my stomach.) The people who make the decisions about this sort of thing thought that he did a great job, and set him up to open at the Luxor! 800 people in the audience - wow.! He is totally comfortable in front of the camera, and he looks like he owns the stage!

BTW - Carrot Top is a really nice guy. Go figure.

Rick -
I am so damed proud of you! You have so much courage and creativity! You rock my world!!!

a few years ago I pitched a screenplay to CarrotTop's manager. Although I still believe that project was perfect for C-Top, that guy is just straight up scary now. It's one thing to be an ugly skinny, funny dude working your weird shit, but his pump-itude is now way beyond Piscipo. KnaWhatImeen?

Superfantastic!

Yeah, he is pumped up now. But he is a very nice guy - I met him before his show, and he was very low key, just hanging out before his show.

He is built now. I guess I would too if I knew that many, many, many comedians talk crap about him behind his back (and they do, I know)

How exciting! Wow. I'll be watching for him on Jimmy Kimmel someday :> Off to watch the video...

YES he is handsome! Much more so than that Carrot Top - he might be a nice guy, but his arm looks like an alien is going to pop out of it! Sheesh!

I sent the BigShotLive link to all my friends and family last week - hopefully it helped. Mom called and thanked me for sending it and told me to tell you that she has always been so impressed by Rick and wished him well! Ditto here, girlfriend! We love ya!

Okay, I'm sure CarroTop is a very nice man...but those muscles creep me out a bit. I remember when he first started out and was an awkward, geeky funny guy. I liked him better that way. More lovable. Not freaky.

Plus...I miss you! I heard the girls stopped over yesterday...poor Gilly has been sick with the flu since Saturday. I'm crossing all fingers hoping I don't get it.

We've got to get together soon! I want to hear all about Cali!!

So cool. I'm glad he got such an opportunity. What's next for you? Are you moving to L.A.?

Well, I'm superimpressed! Not only with the amount of makeup CT wears, but also with daddyman's raving success thus far. Best of luck to him!!
