Tosh, proudly displaying Ow My Balls for the unwashed masses
 
2013-04-22 08:32:14 AM  
do we still get to see him prancing around nude, though?

I fscking hate Daniel Tosh and Louis CK. They're neither funny nor worth listening to.
 
2013-04-22 08:33:17 AM  
It's amazing, actually, how Tosh is able to switch between awkward-silence comedy and hey-everybody-look-at-me-run-at-the-mouth comedy.

Tosh is Carrot Top but with video clips instead of props.

Because he didn't include George Carlin and Bill Hicks in his list of no talent ass clowns?

what if we encode the jokes in Japanese then we can write whole novels in the space of 140 characters

I never heard of this Tosh guy before his TV show. Its not so bad, I get a few yucks out of it.

Ugh, Tosh... so full of himself.  He's like the Kevin Hart of comedy.

Ralphie May is comedy for stupid people.

I don't thing that tosh is that bad.  Although I would agree that small doses is probably better.
 
2013-04-22 09:16:06 AM  
If all you know of Tosh is his show, watch his stand up, he's better than half the guys who have grabbed a mic and a camera to tape a special.

OK, I had to GIS Ralphie May, thought you were calling Pinnet  fat and vulgar, vulgar he isn't, so I ass-u-me you were talking about May.

and as long as long as Jeff Dunham makes money, no one can complain about who is a bad comedian.

Does Tosh actually speak? I thought he just smirked at the camera in between videos of people pooping.
 
2013-04-22 09:25:12 AM  
I love the Tosh show.  It's the perfect, relaxing escape from sitting at work and watching you tube all day.  The problem is, I only watch television when I eat my pre-bed snack (350 g cottage cheese, 4 scoops casein powder with 1 quart of milk, fifteen frozen strawberries, 1/4th pound of sliced ham, 1 bottle of pre-made turkey gravy).  And some of the stuff he shows on there is way too disgusting to watch while you are eating.  Have you every tried eating that much cottage cheese while you watch somebody throw up?  Or pop a huge back pimple?  Or pull down their pants and shiat in a grocery store?  I spend more time looking away than actually watching the show.  I usually end up switching over to porn so I can get my T levels jacked up for the morning workout.  #riseandgrind
 
2013-04-22 09:26:42 AM  
The few times I've had the dishonor of watching Tosh.0 I hated every freaking moment.  It's a show about basically taking 30 second internet videos, showing them once, then showing them again, but this time pausing them every couple seconds so some annoying douche can throw out 2 or 3 awful jokes before unpausing for a few seconds more until the next couple of horrid jokes.  At least America's Funniest Home Videos had the decency to just keep the video rolling with stupid commentary over it instead of prolonging the agony.

From the few episodes I've seen it honestly seemed kind of racist too, and not in a "I'm quickly offended by anything slightly un-PC" kind of way, but a "there happens to be a black guy way in the background of this video not doing anything related to what's happening in the slightest, yet this is enough of an excuse for the unfunny host to do a horribly stereotyped impression of black people" way.

Or you could just watch three episodes of Tosh.O from 2010 back-to-back.  He rarely strays from being topical.

/his laugh...have his balls dropped yet?
 
2013-04-22 09:28:44 AM  
Meh, I still enjoy his show. It's gotten a little stale, but I still get a chuckle. I'll watch any of his stand-up specials though, those are farking hilarious.
 
2013-04-22 09:37:32 AM  
Let me translate probably 90% of the above: "I was a fan of Tosh before he was famous, he was so funny, but then he got SO mainstream and uncool so now I hate him for selling out and trying to actually make money."

His choice of "ow my balls" vids isn't bad, it's the crappy commentary.
Using misogyny as a substitute for wit is his biggest problem.

I have the same snack from time to time, and this one time I entrusted my wife of making said snack,.  What a disaster.  She got everything else perfect except for the strawberries.  She only put in fourteen!!!!  Can you believe that shiat?  Threw the whole thing off.  Well, I couldn't have that, her twisted concoction wasn't even fit for a dog to consume.  So, I set it back on top of her head, and told her to get the fark out with that demon brew.  she knows better now.

It's mostly stuff like "black guys sure can run fast.... FROM THE COPS" which I understand is pretty highbrow for comedy central

True. And his show caters to the kiddie brained frat boy market, it's not supposed to be for everyone.

This has never been, and never will be, an acceptable excuse for something being shiat.

Comedy Central:

Daily Show/Colbert Report
Occasional Futurama reruns
South Park (a show I rarely watch but can respect)

And a bunch of lowest-common-denominator crap I wouldn't watch no matter how terminally bored I was.  Tosh might not be worse than the rest of them, but they give him more airtime than all the standups combined.
 
2013-04-22 09:52:16 AM  

ahchoo: I still can't believe that people think Jerry Seinfeld is funny.


He really isn't.  It was the other characters of the show that really made him famous.  If it weren't for TV execs handing out shows to comics that hardly anyone had ever heard of (Seinfeld, Brett Butler, Tim Allen, Ray Ramona, Paul Reiser, etc.)  back in the late 80's/early 90's he would have probably stuck to the club circuit where he belonged.

Newsflash: He isn't going anywhere. It's one of the cheapest shows for Comedy Central to produce and also has one of the highest ratings, that's a goldmine formula for any channel.

Tosh.0 is consistently funny. Daniel Tosh is funny as a standup comedian.

No, it's Fark.com, where no matter how crappy the subject matter someone is willing to defend it with "you must only dislike it because its popular".

Well you're biatching that it's the worst thing to ever happen to TV ever. Just wanted to let you know that it won't end any time soon.

But I understand you've been traumatized, what with all the times you've had the "dishonor" of watching it. I'm shocked you didn't stab the person who forced you to watch it in the eyeballs.

I've been wondering the same about you. You came in biatching that it's just a horrible show, whereas I've enjoyed it.

When KrispyKritter said "It's not supposed to be for everyone" You came in saying that's never a good excuse for shiat. Except that "shiat" part is entirely your opnion. The fact that it's CC's highest rated show says differently. And yes, I know that popular =/= good automatically (Justin Bieber), but I enjoy it, so your opinion of it is like, entirely your opinion man.

In the end all your ranting about how terrible the show is will accomplish nothing. No one's forced you to watch it (yet for some reason you've watched it more than once).
