Six hours of Daniel Tosh lampooning any and all internet videos he can get his hands on - what could possibly go wrong....?
Paramount / 345 Minutes / 2012 / Unrated / Street Date: December 21, 2012
Watch an episode of Tosh.0 and you'll get at least one loud embarrassment-nudity awkward laugh out of it. Over the last couple years, Daniel Tosh has become the patron saint of off-color comedy punditry, with his Tosh.0 show cementing its cultural import as the drunken-frat-party equivalent of The Soup, and that's meant as a compliment: while a six-hour compilation like Deep V's grows mighty old after a while, there's no denying that the guy has his shtick down pat.
If you haven't experienced the Tosh.0 juggernaut yet, basically in any episode, our host stands in front of a green screen and guides us through the fifty or sixty most hideous and unfathomable internet videos his team has been able to cobble together. And these things are gross: puke is probably a factor in 1/5 of all clips shown, and the rest of the material runs the gamut from Italian bodybuilders in Speedos tickling each other in a bathtub to a drunk girl sitting in a hot tub with her buddies and having a sudden (and grotesque) bout of diarrhea.
Yes, much of Tosh.0 is patently disgusting, but these are the kind of human snapshots the internet has given us access to (AFV certainly wouldn't broadcast them). And Tosh himself is the perfect emcee for a show like this one - sure, he comes across as a full-on-idle douchebag, but he's somehow a lovable one. And he proves episodes after episode that he's willing to subvert his a-hole on-screen personality by any means possible, subjecting himself to the kind of hideous rigors those poor suckers in his internet clips have suffered. They're a match made in heaven.
