abstract
  • Daniel Dwight Tosh is an American stand-up comedian and television host. He currently hosts the Comedy Central video clip show, Tosh.0. He has had three specials: Daniel Tosh: True Stories I Made Up,Completely Serious & Happy Thoughts This comedian provides examples of: * Ambiguously Gay * Butt Monkey: Women * Dead Baby Comedy * Don't Explain the Joke: Averted with particularly obtuse jokes and references, which he explains in detail for greater comic effect. * Drugs Are Bad: Averted; he argues that steroids will only make sports more entertaining. * Have You Told Anyone Else?: On "True Stories I Made Up", he says one of his greatest fears is that he will be the first to hear that one of his friends won the lottery. * Gag Penis: According to him, people made fun of his "fat dick" in school. * Hollywood Tourettes: Inverted in that he wonders if there's anyone out there with "polite Tourette's". * Jerkass: He's not afraid to say what he thinks. Especially about women. * Lampshade Hanging: "Are we down to six people? Great!" * Mean Character, Nice Actor: As stated above, his onstage persona is a complete Jerkass who's racist, sexist, conceited, selfish, and a general douche. This of course is all part of the act, especially obvious when you read an interview with him, where he comes off as rather humble and generally good-hearted, and has even been referred to by an interviewer as being a bit of a sweetheart. * Overly Long Gag: "I'm aware I can end the joke at the good part. I choose not to." * "Do you like how I start jokes with mass appeal and continue 'til only six people have a clue what I'm talking about? That's not a good style. That doesn't make you famous." * Refuge in Audacity: He spoofs this after making an extremely sexist joke by justifying it with, "I can say that, I have my own TV show," or "I can say that, I'm black" after making a homophobic remark. * Ripped from the Headlines: Many of his jokes combine popular celebrity fiascoes of the moment and semi-obscure sports references. * Rule of Three: Subverted with the inverted Hollywood Tourettes example; he gives only two examples before declaring he's moving on. * Shout-Out: During his special, he ends one of his jokes by saying "Hoooot Pocket". He says another comedian wrote the end of the joke. * "If you knock on my grandparents' door and you find them lying on the floor, the only thing you are legally allowed to do is a Finishing Move. Hadouken! That would be mine." * Take That, Audience! * This Is for Emphasis, Bitch: One bit revolves around working the phrase "Suck It" into everyday conversation: * Too Soon: Averted; nothing is sacred to him.
