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. A quick look at Daniel: thus far: Born in Germany… grew up a preacher’s kid in Florida… two sisters and one brother…surfer… decent student… bad allergies… began his foray into stand up … UCF graduate… took to the road… lives in Los Angeles on the beach and loves his dog.
Daniel is currently one of the most requested headliners in the country. He has also quickly evolved into one of the most popular and successful college acts, performing at more than seven hundred campuses. Daniel’s casual style and sharp material have proven to be greatly appreciated by his audiences,young and old (but mostly young).
Daniel made his network debut on THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN, and has returned to perform several times since. Recently, Daniel appeared multiple times on THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY LENO. His previous television credits include THE LATE, LATE SHOW WITH CRAIG KILBORN, JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE, LAST CALL WITH CARSON DALY, PREMIUM BLEND (Comedy Central), THE BEST WEEK EVER (VH-1), THE TEST (FX) and FRIDAY NIGHT STAND-UP (Comedy Central). In 2002, he taped his first stand up special, COMEDY CENTRAL PRESENTS DANIEL TOSH, at the Hudson Theatre in New York City. While still living in Florida, Daniel hosted his own popular late-night television show, TENS.
Daniel has performed at the most significant comedy festivals across the globe. In 1998, he appeared in the New Faces at the Just for Laughs International Comedy Festival in Montreal. Through the great response generated, he was invited to return two years later in his own televised Gala at The St. Denis Theatre. In addition, Daniel has also turned in triumphant festival performances in New Zealand and Kikenny, Ireland, one of Europe’s largest comedy festivals, as well as HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colorado.
This year Daniel shot his fourth television project for MTV Networks, as well as a comedy pilot for Turner Television entitled SHORT FLIX. Stand-up remains Daniel’s primary passion, that is until he gets a TV show that doesn’t fail. When not performing comedy, Daniel surfs, gambles and continues to pursue his interests in acting, hosting and writing. Daniel’s debut DVD/CD, TRUE STORIES I MADE UP, will be released this November through Comedy Central Records.
