Ohio School Cancels ‘Vulgar’ Comic

February 19, 2000

FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) _ The University of Findlay has canceled an appearance by Carrot Top because the red-headed comedian won’t clean up his act.

University officials were worried that vulgar language in Carrot Top’s act would offend some students, and asked him to adhere to prime-time viewing standards, said David Emsweller, dean of students.

``We have a strong Church of God affiliation,″ Emsweller said. ``For us not to have some groundwork in place as to what’s appropriate and what’s not appropriate wouldn’t be very wise on our part.″

Carrot Top’s management said there was nothing to discuss about the agreement with the university and that he had already decided not to perform there later this month.
