Daniel Tosh, though born in Germany, spent his formative years in Titusville, Florida. It is this geographical upbringing that he gives credit to for helping him be funny thanks to Florida being "flat, hot and dumb." The son of a preacher man made his move to Los Angeles after college in the late '90s.
A 2001 appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman snowballed into other spots, including on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel Live! Soon enough Comedy Central came calling and aired a Tosh special in 2003.
A couple of years later, Daniel Tosh: Completely Serious helped land him even more work on the network as a host of shows like Live at Gotham. Then, Tosh was gifted with a show of his own.
By signing a whopper of a deal with Comedy Central, Tosh landed Tosh.0, an accompanying blog, The Tosh Tour Twenty Ten, and a comedy special filmed in San Francisco that was broadcast and released on CD/DVD.
Tosh.0 has proven to be wildly popular with its blend of viral videos and satiric commentary. Among the segments is “Web Redemption” which offers subjects of humiliatingly famous videos a chance to redeem themselves.
Daniel Tosh's live performance is hysterical. Look for Daniel Tosh on tour this year and look to ClickitTicket.com for cheap Daniel Tosh Tickets.
