Tosh has created a character for his show using the same worn out sitcom format that's been going on forever - "Let's put an openly gay guy, who starts every episode by talking about his designer clothes, into an apartment with an acerbic yet clever homophone!  The sparks will fly!"  The bigot-Tosh gets to say whatever he wants because he's living with the gay-Tosh, whom he obviously feels affection toward.

And if you watch this tired old set-up for more than ten minutes, it becomes repetitive and tiring.  Which is why Tosh has taken his five minutes of stand-up material and smothered it with twenty-five minutes of self-promotion, stupid Internet videos, and network commercials.  Tired out stand-up and filler?  Tell me for the fifteenth time, where do I buy the DVD?!

He screwed himself by using his own name for the character, as now he's always going to be Tosh, the "I can't believe he just said that out loud guy!"  And, to keep his career going, he's going to have to continue to work the "is he or isn't he gay" angles by doing stunts like this audience attack.

I'm sure he doesn't give two shiats about what some random audience member thinks.  Tosh's attack was empty and served only to keep up his shtick - talk about my pretty new shoes here, then imply I like it in the ass, then drop the humor from my voice and tell someone they're a bigot.  Keep em guessing!  That'll sustain a fifteen minute career for about five more minutes.

He annoys me so much because he plays on dimwitted people's emotions and wallets while feigning outrage over an important social issue.  I hate him so much I'd rather ride cross country with Dane Cook than listen to Tosh's continual schtick-for-the-sake-of-schtick grotesques.

I miss the comedians who actual put a little analytical thought and expression into their comedy - Carlin, Hicks, Kinison, Pryor.  And all those guys have the same thing in common with stand-up as it stands today.

I'm sad to see Tosh live another day while the worms shiat the talent of the greats.

I think someone in this thread just had a rage stroke.

Tangentially related, for some reason I hate that Jeselnik Offensive guy. His delivery bothers me, and I just don't find him entertaining. He seems to be trying to ride the "I'm being offensive just to be offensive, so it's funny!" wave, and not pulling it off with the weird charm Tosh has.

Anyways, I'm a Tosh fan, but this segment was a bit weak, and Brickleberry sucks.

Tosh reminds me of a dude I went to college with. Same delivery, same wide, impish smile, same style of humor, same ambiguously gay persona (college buddy is straight, but loves playing with the line between joke and reality), they even look kind of similar beyond the smile.

Anyway, Jeselnik seems like a carbon copy of Tosh, only no one knows who he is. It'd be like CC starting another show about 3 roommates who work together in "sales"; one who looks weird, one who is just weird and the straight man (bonus if they have an angry biatch of a boss) - and expecting viewers to not notice that they already air a show just like that right beforehand.

Comedy Central has the worst video player in the history of civilization. I can't watch more than 10 seconds at a time without it lagging and buffering, and some genius thought it would be great to prevent anyone from pausing and letting it load.

Watched the first 5 seconds of the ad for this one and then closed the window.

Yeah, Tosh annoys the shiat out of me. I remember when the show was called "Talk Soup" and was actually funny. Even his stand up reminds me too much of his show. That said, I think this was pretty cool and it'll be the first time I've recommended anything he's done for other people to see. I'm definitely going to pass this one on.

I know his show is supposed to be "offensive" but I think his comedy is less about saying offensive stuff and more about saying awful stuff that is so awful it could offend you. And I think he does it in a (usually) clever way. I'm not sure how long he can keep it up since his jokes are long, deliberate and slow, but the show has been pretty decent so far. There are at least a couple really good jokes I remember from each episode. I can't really say that for Tosh.

I was pleasantly surprised by Key and Peele. I don't usually enjoy black comedians because all their jokes seem to be in the "white people walk like this, but black people walk like this" vein. Key and Peele still do a lot of race jokes, but they have an original, nerdy sort of take on them which is refreshing.
