How Much Did Daniel Tosh Make on ‘Tosh.0’ and What Is His Net Worth?
Daniel Tosh is a comedian, actor, writer, and executive producer. He is best known for hosting the recently-canceled Comedy Central series Tosh.0, but Tosh also has several other lucrative creative projects. Here’s how much the comedian is worth.
Daniel Tosh was born outside of the United States
Tosh was born in Boppard, Germany, on May 29, 1975. He and his four siblings spent most of their childhood in Titusville, Florida, where his father was a preacher.
In 1996, Tosh earned a degree in marketing from the University of Central Florida. After graduating, Tosh had a brief career in telemarketing, until he moved to Los Angeles and started to work the comedy club circuit. His appearance on David Letterman’s late-night show in 2001 is what kickstarted his career in standup comedy.
Daniel Tosh has had many successful comedy specials and tours
Tosh became a star after several appearances on late-night television. People loved his dry sarcasm so much that he landed two Comedy Central specials — one in 2003 and another in 2007.
Then in 2009, Tosh.0 premiered on Comedy Central. The half-hour series analyzed internet memes and videos that became viral sensations.
In addition to his comedy tours and hosting work, Tosh has also starred in several movies and television series. His acting portfolio includes the film The Love Guru and comedy series Brickleberry.
Much of Tosh’s work involves writing and producing comedy. “I’m not a good actor,” Tosh admitted to Forbes. “I can play myself and a much gayer version of myself. That’s about my range.”
Comedy Central is moving on without Daniel Tosh and ‘Tosh.0’
Thanks to Tosh’s unique and dark sarcasm, Tosh.0 was a massive success for Comedy Central. Until the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hit, Comedy Central had plans for four more seasons of Tosh’s series. Fans were shocked to hear of the network’s reversal and the cancellation of Tosh.0.
Drunk History is another live-action series the comedy network canceled this year. Given the success of animated series like South Park, Comedy Central plan is to move forward to more animated programs. A Beavis and Butt-Head reboot is currently in the works, as well as a reimagination of The Ren & Stimpy Show.
Fortunately, Tosh isn’t too broken up about Comedy Central canceling Tosh.0. “I look forward to doing an animated reboot of my show on MTV in 25 years,” he said in a statement.
Daniel Tosh hopes to continue with ‘Tosh.0’
Tosh’s career certainly isn’t over. Slash Film reported that Tosh and his executive producers Charlie Siskel, Nick Malis, and Christie Smith are shopping the series around other networks and digital streaming platforms.
Considering how the show is relatively inexpensive to produce — much of the content is crowd-sourced — Tosh, producers, and fans are hopeful Tosh.0 will find a new home and have its own web redemption.
Daniel Tosh’s salary and net worth
Thanks to a successful career as a stand-up comedian and his many pursuits with comedy television, Tosh has earned a significant amount of money.
Today, Tosh is worth $20 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
