Since being named one of Variety's "10 Comics to Watch" in 2005, Daniel Tosh has been ruling the comedy industry. He has earned the admiration of his audiences and peers with a unique brand of comedy that has made him one of the most requested headliners in the country. 41-year-old Daniel Tosh specializes in Black Comedy. His bold mockery of the topics considered taboo in the society is what made him famous in the first place.
For nearly two decades now, Daniel Tosh has been making his audiences ROFL with his comic timings and sarcastic comments. Tosh attended the University of Central Florida, graduating in December 1996 with a degree in marketing, and almost immediately went on to pursue his dream. Initially, he started touring the comedy club circuit. He appeared as one of the "New Faces" at the 1998 Just for Laughs in Montreal. His act was televised in 2000 in Montreal at the Théâtre Saint-Denis.
But his first big break as a comedian came in 2001. He was called for a performance on the Late Show with David Letterman. He then went on to make appearances on programs such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Comedy Central's Premium Blend.
For long now, Tosh has been a regular guest on radio shows such as The Bob & Tom Show, Loveline, and Kevin and Bean.
Daniel Tosh performed in his own 30-minute special on Comedy Central Presents in 2003 and Daniel Tosh: Completely Serious in 2007. He also hosted an episode of Comedy Central's Live at Gotham and appeared in an episode of MTV's Punk'd.

Daniel Tosh’s first nomination was for Teen Choice Award Choice Comedian in 2011. The same nomination was presented to him in 2013 too. And in 2012, he was nominated for Choice Other: Comedian for the Teen Choice Award.
Daniel Tosh didn’t win any of his nominated categories. It was said that he didn't win any awards due to the fact that Tosh and his genre of comedy is a highly sensitive matter.
His deliberately offensive and controversial style of black comedy advocates that no subject is too taboo to joke about, including racism, suicide, sex, politics, religion, and even rape.
