BREAKING THE INTERNET ON A REGULAR BASIS
“TOSH.0” RETURNS WITH NEW EPISODES BEGINNING TUESDAY, AUGUST 25 AT 10:00 P.M. ET/PT
NEW YORK, August 19, 2015 – Host Daniel Tosh is back culling the vast web and social media landscape as new episodes of “Tosh.0” kick off on Tuesday, August 25 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
This season also marks the return of the “Tosh.0 Memorabilia Dump.” After Daniel lost all the earnings from his lastmemorabilia dump, $24,199 on a single hand of black jack in 2012, he is ready to get his money back. The show will be cleaning house again and auctioning off its favorite items via eBay from selected episodes of the show. For fans who missed it the first time, they have another chance to own a piece of “Tosh.0” and television history.
The “Web Redemption” segment in the premiere episode features Angelo, a former Menudo member and cosplay fan, who discusses life’s ups and downs with Daniel before starring in his very own musical.
Future “Web Redemptions” and “CeWEBrity Profiles” include:
- Samurai Nose: After his buddy chopped off his nose with a Samurai sword, Ethan gets help from Daniel to get his revenge.
- Welven Da Great: Daniel helps Welven go mainstream with his internet fame.
- Catfish Cooley: Daniel gives down-home internet star Catfish a shot at reality television and Kardashian-level celebrity.
- Vegan: Passionate vegan John shares his opinions on animal cruelty with Daniel and then serenades him with a song about it.
Currently in its seventh season, “Tosh.0” premiered on June 4, 2009 and features razor-sharp humor and biting commentary from comedian Daniel Tosh. The weekly, topical series delves into all aspects of the Internet from the absolutely absurd to the incredibly ingenious. Each episode includes a “CeWEBrity Profile” or Tosh giving subjects of notorious viral videos a second chance to redeem themselves from the embarrassment with which they have become synonymous with their very own “Web Redemption.”
