Kicking off Halloween weekend in Las Vegas, comedian Carrot Top unveiled his own shrunken head this evening at The Golden Tiki. Managing Partner Branden Powers was on hand to present the honor to the headlining Strip performer.
“This is amazing,” said Carrot Top. “Now I always have a friend to drink with at The Golden Tiki!”
Said Powers, “We just thought, what better way to salute one of our favorite performers than by preserving him forever in our Headhunter Village.”

Carrot Top loved the likeness so much, he posed with it for several minutes, before requesting that Powers have a duplicate made for his showroom at the Luxor Hotel & Casino. The head was crafted over a four week process by artists commissioned by the Golden Tiki, and is expected to be the first in a series of celebrity shrunken heads on display at Vegas’ iconic new Tiki revival bar.
