Before They Were Stars: Carrot Top and Todd Barry were extras in “Police Academy 5”

Now it can be known, and now, once more, it can be shown.

In this clip from the 1998 movie, Police Academy 5: Assignment: Miami Beach, we see the Police Academy graduates at the airport, along with two hungry young stand-up comedians, Todd Barry and Scott Thompson (Carrot Top). They both came up through the South Florida comedy scene, and here they are in perhaps their first big-screen credits!

Two other things to consider:

  1. Todd Barry once had more hair than Carrot Top?
  2. Will the real Carrot Top please stand up?

Roll the clip! (Thanks to Ken Reid for digging this up!)
