Daniel Tosh Gets His Geek on and Tackles the Ever-Evolving Interwebs and Hosts COMEDY CENTRAL's New Weekly, Topical Series 'Tosh.O' Premiering Thursday, June 4 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT
NEW YORK, May 11 -- With razor sharp wit and biting commentary, comedian Daniel Tosh delves into all aspects of the Internet from the absolutely absurd to the incredibly ingenious in this new weekly, topical series, "Tosh.0" debuting on Thursday, June 4 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
"Tosh.0" goes deep into the Web, spinning commentary about blogs and vlogs both popular and obscure, tweets and pokes, popular sites and new technologies. In addition, the series will feature viral clips of the week, premiere its own original videos created by and starring well-known actors and comedians, as well as highlight a weekly "Viewer's Choice" video chosen from among those uploaded and voted on via COMEDY CENTRAL's flanker Web site, Atom. Each episode will feature the segment "Web Redemption," which will give subjects of infamous viral videos (think Afro Ninja) a second chance to redeem themselves from the embarrassment with which they've become synonymous.
The unusual mind of Daniel Tosh has earned him the admiration of his peers by winning over audiences with his unique brand of stand-up comedy that has made him one of the most requested headliners in the country. His casual style and sharp material have proven to be greatly appreciated by his audiences, young and old (but mostly young). Named one of Variety's "10 Comics to Watch" in 2005, Tosh has performed on "The Late Show with David Letterman," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "The Late, Late Show with Craig Kilborn," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Last Call with Carson Daly," "Best Week Ever" (VH-1) and MTV's "Punk'd." On the film front, Tosh was featured in Mike Myers' 2008 release, "The Love Guru."
Tosh has a long history with COMEDY CENTRAL having hosted the network's "Live at Gotham" stand-up series and performing on "Premium Blend" and "Friday Night Stand-Up." Tosh has also been featured on the all-comedy channel in a half-hour stand-up special "COMEDY CENTRAL Presents..." (2002) and his first hour-long stand-up special, "Completely Serious" (2007). His premiere CD, "True Stories I Made Up," was released in 2005 through COMEDY CENTRAL Records.
"Tosh.0" is executive produced by Daniel Tosh and Mike Gibbons ("Talk Show with Spike Feresten," "The Showbiz Show with David Spade"). Gary Mann and Joe Lewis are the executives in charge of production for COMEDY CENTRAL.
