Comic Gold (and Goo) Dec 30, 2006
By Mark Eremite
"This Is A Display Model Only"
Being offensive and raunchy is all-too-often an easy target for most up-coming comics. If you can't think of a good joke, then insult someone and some people are bound to laugh. Daniel Tosh, in this CD/DVD combo, does say much that is offensive, insulting, crude, gross and vicious. But, if this is believable, his comedy isn't just malicious. It's smart.
His jokes rarely follow any kind of predictable formula, and as a result, some people might find them as weird and bizarre as they are dirty and foul-mouthed. Really, though, he demonstrates a nimbleness of humor when he goes off on one of his tumble-down rants. As he says, "I like to do a joke that everybody likes and then keep taking it farther and farther until nobody has a clue what I'm talking about." It's true that you might end up confused more than once, but you'll still be laughing.
The only thing this set has against it, as others have said, is its brevity. It's normal for any good entertainer to leave you wanting more, but Tosh leaves you wanting almost TOO much more. The CD barely clocks in at 50 minutes and the DVD is about 30. Still, this is made up for by the fact that Daniel's crude complexity and incisive gibes are imminently listenable. A rarity for most comedy CD/DVDs, this one withstands multiple replays and then some.
Detractors of this set (and Daniel Tosh, in general) have accused him of being derivative and low-brow, racist and demeaning. It's very easy to look at any kind of medium, be it music, movies, or comedy, and call it a mimicry or "rip-off" of something that came before. You could pick any entertainer and trace their lineage all the way back to the days of Euripedes if you want to be a stickler about it. And those people who are offended or "hurt" by Daniel's humor aren't listening closely enough; true, he takes a lot of shots below the belt, but let's put it this way: he doesn't discriminate against crotches. Everyone (from whites to blacks, from women to men, from intellectuals to morons) is up for grabs. If you want equal respect for all people, Daniel wants equal disrespect, and he petitions for it with finely-tuned hilarity and cinder block wit.

Vicious but very funny Aug 14, 2006
By Vaughn Deyhle
Mr. Tosh has material to offend just about anyone but it's very clever. He'll get on a roll, get you expecting to be offended and knowing how you're going to be offended ... then he torques it and offends you in a way you didn't see coming. He is a skilled writer and his material is definitely clever.
With that said, this is some of the most abrasive, vicious and mean spirited material out there, if that's not your bag, hey, you've been warned. At times, there is a twinge of Dane Cook in there, but I believe Tosh is better than Cook. Some of the other comparisons others have made such as Sarah Silverman are also valid, but there are only hints of that in there. Daniel Tosh is still Daniel Tosh and there's a lot of great original material in there.

Tosh is the greatest! Nov 11, 2005
By Giovanna Pietri
This CD is so great. Daniel Tosh is one of my favorite comedians and he is amazing. Most of the material is from his tour but there are a lot of classic jokes from his Comedy central Presents. Comedy Central didn't try very hard with the DVD though. It's his episode of CCP, just like it aired, without any extra features. It looks poorly compressed and yet it's still hilarious. I wish they would have added more like they did for Dane Cook or Mitch Hedberg. Tosh didn't do much but he had a few things on like Premium Blend or the Just for Laughs. Whatever. They should have done more. He's great. Buy the damn album. It's worth every penny.

I laugh every time I listen to this.... Nov 29, 2006
no matter how many times I have listened to it. I swear, you would think you wouldn't want to purchase a comedy album because how many times can you listen to the same thing? Well, I have listened to this CD more than I have listened to most of my music CDs. I share this CD with any friend willing to listen, and they all end up thinking it is hilarious, too. And yes, the jokes are completely un-PC...but that is what they are, JOKES. Some people take things way too seriously, the person that said you would only like this if you have no self respect. If that person had a clue about Daniel Tosh before buying this, (and why would you buy a comedy album from a comedian you had never heard before?), they wouldn't have bought it in the first place. The DVD that is with it is very edited and much more sweet than the CD because it was made for Comedy Central. The CD is 100 times better. I have seen Daniel Tosh in person and he is fantastically funny, his material as well as his delivery is classic. I highly recommend, as long as you can take jokes on abortion, racism, sex, etc. If not, look elsewhere!

I WAS DRENCHED FROM LAUGHING SO HARD! Mar 30, 2006
By far the funniest comedian going! Funniest comedy CD to come out since Dave Attell's. And I haven't had such a great response from everyone I've had listen to it either. Definitely worth it! And yes, the DVD is a little blah since I've seen it so many times, but plenty of different stuff on the CD. I just wish he'd dip down from Irvine to come to San Diego!
