Biography

A gangly, devilishly mirthful prankster with a deft touch with the risqué and tickling un-PC buttons, Daniel Tosh leapt into national prominence with the simplest of television concepts - making fun of the world's vast of population of YouTube-recorded idiots. Tosh, a Florida-raised stand-up, worked the comedy circuit since the mid-1990s. By the early 2000s, he found his way to stand-up spots on late-night network shows. Establishing a relationship with basic cable channel Comedy Central, Tosh performed his first stand-up special in 2007 and, in 2009, created "Tosh.0" (2009- ), a sort of R-rated "America's Funniest Home Videos" (ABC, 1990- ) with a healthy dose of snark, shock and ribaldry. The show became one of Comedy Central's highest-rated, vaulting Tosh into the upper echelon of stand-up renown. With a mean-streak and a taste for the disgusting offset by a happy-go-lucky personality, Tosh walked the tightrope between offensive and funny, becoming, as he put it in a 2011 Comedy Central promo, the go-to guy for showing America "the grossest thing you've ever seen since the last time I showed you the grossest thing you've ever seen."
