Tosh.0 airs Tuesdays at 10 PM ET, and is a clip-based sketch comedy series that mercilessly mocks pretty much everything people are dumb enough to post on the Internet. He summarized it in one bit as "Talks Soup meets America's Funniest Home Videos, with a bit of pepper." Which is sort of a dumb description since while the clips are usually the best part, there's plenty of original content to show off some genuinely great writing and brilliant comedic timing.

The trademark middle segment of the show is a "Web Redemption," featuring whatever hapless Internet celebrity agreed to fly out to LA that week. While they've had on a few more mainstream characters (David after Dentist, Tay Zonday), the funniest ones are usually the redemptions featuring more obscure web videos.

His stand-up is also really good, and Daniel himself is by all accounts a remarkably nice dude in person. He also makes fun of Reddit and Florida a lot so there's shades of GBS in there if that's your thing. Despite this, it's worth mentioning that he does occasionally venture a tad too far into RAPE/RACISM LOL territory (not nearly to Family Guy/Jeff Dunham/Carlos Mencia levels, but enough to be annoying). Although with most comedians these days that's not exactly uncommon. So yeah, still pretty GBS. Just give it a shot and decide whether or not it's for you. It's one of Comedy Central's cheapest and highest-rated shows so it's not going anywhere for a while.

If you especially like the pop-web-video aspect you should also check out "@Midnight."


We don't talk about Brickleberry in this thread.

WHO ABUSED HIM. WHO ABUSED THE BOY.


Has he dejectedly had to throw to commercial with the sentence "We'll be right with more Brickleberry" or whatever yet?

Not yet but I think towards the end of last season he said he had officially run out of cancelled Comedy Central shows, so we'll see what happens tonight.

With great payroll, comes great disappointment.


All hail the season of Brad.

I think I'm a doctor, but that doesn't make me a doctor. This fancy avatar does.


I was only sort of half-watching, but I noticed the wardrobe theme seemed to be suits, and the "credits stinger" thing seemed to be "random audience member is a WINNER!" thing, but I missed what he did when he usually says,
"We'll be right back with more [canceled Comedy Central show.] since he's out of shows, right?

He announced awhile ago that instead of doing the Comedy Central show bit (because he's out of shows), he would instead be listing an out of context line that had been cut from a previous Tosh.0 episode for some reason or another.

Edit: Also it's not just suits, but rather, wardrobe worn by Brad Pitt. He was dressed like Mr. and Mrs. Smith Brad Pitt.

I'm so confused about those African boxers jerking off the passed out guy. I'm guessing that's supposed to bring him around?

This was easily one of the best web redemption they've ever had. That guy nailed it perfectly, and even if they gave him the lines he pulled it off.

Apparently trying to increase blood flow to places away from the brain. The whole fight might just be a cover though because it looks like one of those countries where they have an Olympic team for setting gay people on fire and fixing a boxing match is the only way to give a Valentine's handy.

Web redemption was funny just for being high as gently caress on the show.

I think my favorite part of this episode was Daniel's collar doing a little pop motion every time he emphasized a word.


I'm serious, watch it again and look for it. I thought it was hilarious.

No, actually. After the rape-joke controversy last year, CC forced Tosh to tone down the show. Its still 'edgy,' but its not nearly as gross, sexist or racist as it once was.
