Daniel Dwight Tosh (born May 29, 1975)[2] is an American stand-up comedian. He hosts the Comedy Central
television show Tosh.0.[4]
Early life
Tosh was born in Boppard, Rhineland-Palatinate, West Germany,[5] but grew up in Titusville, Florida, the son of a
preacher. After graduating from Astronaut High School in 1993, Tosh attended the University of Central Florida,
graduating in December 1996 with a degree in marketing.[6] Among his first jobs was a telemarketer at Central
Florida Research Park. He said later, "Hey, $15 an hour to annoy people! I really was not preparing myself for the
future at all. I had interviews lined up. I sat through one real interview and I was like, 'I wouldn't hire me.' I left
halfway through the orientation. That's the closest thing I ever got to a real job."[7] Tosh moved to Los Angeles, but
attributes his decision to work in comedy to being raised in Florida, which he considers "flat, hot, and dumb".[8]
He started touring the comedy club circuit almost immediately after graduating college. He appeared as one of the
New Faces at the 1998 Just for Laughs in Montreal. His act was televised in 2000 in Montreal at the Théâtre
Saint-Denis.[9] Tosh's first big career break came in 2001 with a performance on the Late Show with David
Letterman. Tosh followed with appearances on programs such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel
Live! and Comedy Central's Premium Blend.[10] He also hosted a local late-night comedy show in Florida called Ten
and served as a spokesman in Taco Bell commercials.[11] In 2003 he performed in his own 30-minute special on
Daniel Tosh
Comedy Central Presents. On June 17, 2007, Comedy Central aired his stand-up special: Daniel Tosh: Completely
Serious. He also hosted an episode of Comedy Central's Live at Gotham. Tosh is also a regular guest on The Bob &
Tom Show. He played a small role in the feature film The Love Guru starring Mike Myers.
Tosh's Comedy Central television show Tosh.0, which showcases Internet video clips,[12] premiered on June 5, 2009.
His mocking humor is described as "envelope pushing" and frequently features punchlines which are intentionally
racist, sexist or homophobic. Tosh's explanation of his non-politically correct humor is “I’m not a misogynistic and
racist person...But I do find those jokes funny, so I say them.”[13]
Tosh has said he plans to end his career on his 38th birthday, May 29, 2013. He has said he will do this by
committing suicide or retiring to the beach.[14][15] He keeps a countdown clock on his website, [16],
that gives the number of days, minutes, and seconds until his 38th birthday which is when "Daniel's Groundhog Day
Ends," a reference to the Bill Murray film. Tosh has described a comic's routine life on the road as "Groundhog
Tosh's latest special, Happy Thoughts, premiered on Comedy Central on March 6, 2011, with 3.25 million viewers
and a 1.9/5 share.[17] It was later released on DVD as well.
On July 10, 2012, a blog titled Cookies for Breakfast published an account by an unnamed woman in which Tosh
made a series of jokes about rape at the Laugh Factory. According to the blogger, after she called out "Actually, rape
jokes are never funny!", Tosh responded "wouldn’t it be funny if that girl got raped by, like, 5 guys right
now?".[18][19] Later that day Tosh claimed the blog post was inaccurate and that he was misquoted, but apologized
on Twitter for what he had said.[20] The owner of the comedy club, who was present during Tosh's set, stated that the
blog's account of the incident was inaccurate, and that Tosh had rather speculated the woman had "been raped by
like, five guys".[21] The event received a degree of media coverage, with anti-sexual assault groups arguing that his
actions normalize sexual violence,[22] others pointing out that Tosh has been using misogynistic material in his
shows for a long time[23] and comedians Dane Cook, Louis CK, Jim Norton, Stevie Ryan, Patton Oswalt, and Gilbert
Gottfried defending his right to speak uncensored.[24][25]
Personal life
Tosh has one brother and two sisters.[26] Tosh has stated that he suffers from social anxiety.[27][28]
Tosh has participated in several fundraising events, such as a show for the family of comedian Greg Giraldo and for
Alabama disaster relief.[29][30]
