Daniel Tosh is an American comedian known for his dark and sarcastic humour and his complete indifference to the controversy that can often swirl around his hilarious and on-the-nose comedy sets. Despite making a successful transition from stage to television, Tosh is still a regular on the stand-up comedy circuit and booking Daniel Tosh tickets from StubHub is a great way to see the man himself in action.
From just Tosh to Tosh.O
Tosh was actually born in Germany but was raised in Florida. It may shock some to learn that, despite his irreverent and dark style of comedy, he is actually the son of a preacher. Tosh began hitting the comedy circuit hard straight out of college, eventually making regular appearances at major comedy festivals such as the Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal and the Kilkenny Laughs festival in Ireland.
He tells a story of how he set a date of retirement for his 38th birthday and even set a timer that counted down the days and minutes left to that date. Tosh has stated that if he hadn't made it as a comedian by that date, he would either kill himself or retire to the beach! Fortunately, for both him and his audiences, things started to go well fast. He got his first major break when he appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman back in 2001. A year later he was hosting his own comedy stand up special and continued to make regular major appearances until he was given the show that would turn him into a globally recognised name. That show was Tosh.O.
As fearless a comedian as you will find anywhere
Tosh.O showcased Daniel's talents and allowed him to express his oftentimes darkly humorous takes on various kinds of topics. The show garnered a strong following but also courted controversy time and again as Tosh's edgy style of humour entertained many and offended others. In spite of any kind of backlash, Tosh has continued to stick to his comedic guns. He has made more comedy specials, and is now back and touring onstage once again with incredible success. In 2013 Tosh's 60 date tour of America sold out completely and Forbes estimates that he is the ninth wealthiest comedian of all time for earnings based primarily on stage shows. Purchase Daniel Tosh tickets and you need to strap yourself and set your expectations along certain lines. First, except sarcasm! Tosh is known for his off-colour jokes delivered with smirking edginess. Secondly, leave your sense of political correctness at the door. Tosh is known for his ability to push the boundaries of good taste to their breaking point!
