Daniel Dwight Tosh (born May 29, 1975) is an American stand-up comedian and television host. He currently hosts the Comedy Central video clip show, Tosh.0. Tosh was born in Boppard, Rhineland-Palatinate, West Germany but grew up in Titusville, Florida, the son of a preacher with one brother and two sisters. After graduating from Astronaut High School in 1993, Tosh attended the University of Central Florida, graduating in December 1996 with a degree in marketing. Among his first jobs was a telemarketer at Central Florida Research Park. He said later, "Hey, $15 an hour to annoy people! I really was not preparing myself for the future at all. I had interviews lined up. I sat through one real interview, and I was like ‘I wouldn’t hire me.’ I left halfway through the orientation. That’s the closest thing I ever got to a real job." Tosh moved to Los Angeles. He attributes his decision to work in comedy to having been raised in Florida, which he considers "flat, hot and dumb."
