Daniel Tosh, comedy's chosen one, has been healing the sick, stopping wars, helping underprivileged children... not to mention filming COMPLETELY SERIOUS, the single greatest hour in comedy. What have you been doing? Tosh has appeared multiple times on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and the Late Show with David Letterman, and his debut CD, True Stories I Made Up, is close to reaching ten million copies sold (That's Diamond!!). The torch has been passed and stand-up's newest superstar will try not to drop it.

Headed for the Carlin/Hicks/Rock pantheon Mar 10, 2010
By K. Swanson
By far the best stand-up performance I've seen since Chris Rock's perfect Bigger And Blacker, this is one hour of extremely edgy yet somehow good-natured comedy. Tosh spares nothing and no one, least of all America in general. And he does it all so slyly, with that engaging grin and flashing eyes that say, yeah, you know I'm right, admit it.
The material here is twenty minutes longer than what the Comedy Chunnel shows from this dvd. They cut a lot of the best, most over the top bits, so it's a treat to see them here. What really distinguishes Tosh is the intelligence and subtlety of some of his lines. He's skewering all of us, and our selfish society, and does it with so much verve and bonhomie that you hardly notice how deep the cuts go.
I enjoy a comedian who can get straight to the heart of things, and Tosh is a master at that already on his first dvd. He's one of the few stand-ups I've seen in years who clearly has the goods in spades, and seems more interested in commenting on his version of the truth than getting easy laughs. He says things that seem so wrong at first, but one quickly realizes what's really wrong is how right he is about our complacency and prejudices.
His new show on CC, Tosh.0, is decent, but goes for easy laughs and is nowhere near as funny as this dvd and his earlier cd. Let's hope the tv stardom doesn't derail his excellent stand-up, and that he doesn't go the Rock route and release only one performance every five years. Truth is at a premium these days, and this guy is poised to be a prime conduit.
Absolutely recommended to any fan of Carlin, Pryor, Hicks, or Rock.

Hilarious and UN-PC!!!! Loved it!!!! Jan 21, 2012
By Khalid Mundwiller
Just watched this free on Prime Instant Video and it was GREAT!!!! I have seen his Tosh.O show a couple times, but never thought that much of Tosh as a comedian. After this I am a HUGE fan. Everything he said was true, but offensive, which is ok. I think most people are too PC these days. It reminds me of "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia", in that they say the things we are thinking, but are "ashamed" to say. I liked how he wasn't afraid to make fun of his crowd, and thought the jokes about the Midwest were hilarious (I live in Missouri). If you like shows like "Louie" or "It's Always Sunny", then you will LOVE this standup special. Give it a try.

Killer Funny Aug 10, 2012
By D. Frost
This may be my favorite comedy album (DVD whatever) of all time. I have watched this over, and over and just laugh my ass off every time I play it. Tosh just has a way of putting forth jokes so quickly and to the point. Its like condensed comedy. Also, he is very blue and pokes fun at all racial stereotypes, etc. But the difference between a racist joke and a non racist joke is this; "is it funny". The answer is an overwhelming, yes.
But, if you can't take blue humor or jokes on the edge of civility (well mostly well outside of it) then you should skip it. But if you want funny, Daniel Tosh brings it in abundance. This show is a non-stop onslaught of smart humor. You just have to "get it". Many do, but some will not. Too bad for them because if you want your stomach to hurt from laughing, get this Blu-ray/DVD/MP3 however you do.

Daniel Tosh is FREAKIN hilarious!! Oct 24, 2010
I have watched "Completely Serious" so many times I can't even remember. I laughed from the beginning to the end, and everything I watch it, it's still as funny as the first time. From plastic surgery (Is this happy? I orderd happy.), to google (my girlfriend is Asian for this joke) to wave runners, he keeps you laughing so hard. I highly recommend you buy this DVD, you won't be disappointed.

Funniest stand up I've seen. Dec 08, 2010
By Francis Sinatra
First off, I would have to say that this type of humor isn't for all people. Daniel Tosh can be very crude. But if you like that type of humor, this special will not disappoint. For years, Eddie Murphy's RAW and Eddie Izzard's Dress To Kill were my two very favorite stand up specials. Now I would say Daniel Tosh's Completely Serious takes it's place at number 1. I've watched this special at least 10 times and I always laugh uncontrollably. It just never gets old!
