The Comedy Central show vows the Oct. 7 installment will be suitable viewing for the entire family. That’s rarely the case with the button-pushing comedy, which features wacky online videos for our amusement.
“Comedy isn’t about being clean or dirty, it’s about appealing to as wide an audience as possible so I can sell more tickets to my stand-up shows,” said host Daniel Tosh in a press statement. “I designed this episode to help America get back the basic family values that our grandparents beat into our parents.”
Tosh remains one of the entertainment industry’s genuine enigmas. Just try googing “Daniel Tosh Interview” and see what you find. Chances are you’ll uncover a smattering of musty Q&As dating back to the dawn of his TV series.
What entertainer doesn’t talk to the press?
Even Adam Sandler, who generally avoids print publications, finds himself on Jimmy Fallon’s couch with regularity. Not Tosh.
Either way, the show is seriously funny fare for grown ups. Come Oct. 7, we’ll see if his humor translates to the kiddie set.
“Tosh.0” airs at 10 p.m. EST Tuesday nights on Comedy Central.
