A couple days ago I mentioned that I met Carrot Top in Vegas...but I don't think I ever gave the full story. So here goes:
I met Carrot Top at the Fashion Show Mall. He was in the Guess store with a bored blonde girl. I approached him while he was waiting in line and struck up a conversation about the Gallegher Too lawsuit. He was pretty interested in the discussion, but the blonde girl: not so much.
Comedian Leo Gallegher’s younger brother, Ron looks just like him. Ron asked Leo if he could borrow the Sledge-o-Matic act, and Leo said yes, on the condition that Ron make it clear to audiences that he was not Leo. For a while Ron upheld the distinction, but little by little he began to blur the line. Eventually he offered audiences no indication that he was not his brother. Leo sued him for false advertising and trademark violations—and won. The Gallagher family sided with Ron, though, and no longer talks to Leo.
