Daniel Tosh is probably best known as the host of Comedy Central’s Tosh.0, which uses a lot of viral web videos to get laughs out of viewers as Tosh interjects his comedy in between. He’s also a successful stand up comedian, though.
Tosh really burst onto the scene in 2001 when he was on the Late Show with David Letterman. Eventually, one Comedy Central special led to another before he picked up his own show in 2009. Tosh is known for pushing the boundaries of acceptable comedy, so his content often includes jokes about racism and sexism.
Tosh has had a running joke that he will end his career on May 29, although he has a slew of shows scheduled starting on May 30 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Still, you never know. The last chance to see Daniel Tosh perform could come on April 19 and April 20 in Las Vegas, Nevada when he performs at the Terry Fator Theatre at the Mirage.
Tosh is always coming up with fresh material, but he has released one CD, one DVD and one combination CD and DVD. Those might give some sense of what you can expect to hear from his routine this year. True Stories I Made Up was released in 205, while Completely Serious came out in 2007 and Happy Thoughts dropped in 2011.
Any time Tosh performs without the constraints of television censorship, you never know exactly what you might get. On top of his own admission to making misogynistic and racist jokes that he finds funny even if he doesn’t believe them, Daniel Tosh was at the center of controversy last July after accusations that he made inappropriate jokes about rape.
Tosh denied that the accusations were accurate, but apologized for his remarks nonetheless. A long list of prominent comedians then came out to support his right to speak uncensored as a comedian, much in the tradition of many comics who pushed the boundaries of acceptable speech in the past.
You may not know exactly what you’ll get, but you know that Tosh won’t be afraid to speak his mind and there are sure to be plenty of laughs so get your tickets now for his shows in Las Vegas on April 19 and 20.
