Early Life and Education

Although the identities of his parents are unknown, there is the fact that Daniel’s father used to be a Presbyterian minister. To the media’s knowledge thus far, it doesn’t appear that Daniel had any siblings. His family apparently decided to move early in his childhood, since it is known that he grew up in Titusville, Florida USA, where he attended the Astronaut High School, matriculating in 1993,  then studying at the University of Central Florida, from where he graduated in December of 1996 with a degree in marketing. It is unknown when exactly Daniel took an interest in what he does today, much less so due to the fact that comedy little direct relationship with the marketing business.


Before becoming what he is today, Tosh first tried working as a telemarketer at Central Florida Research Park. According to one of his comedy show monologues: ‘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.’ His real career began a year later, when he was chosen to be one of the “New Faces” in the 1998 “Just for Laughs” show in Montreal. This performance also marked his TV screen debut, since it was televised at the Theatre Saint-Denis in the said city in 2000. However, it wasn’t until 2001 that Tosh achieved significant recognition, by appearing in the “Late Show with David Letterman”. He went on to join various night shows, such as those hosted by Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel, then in 2003, he got his own 30-minute special on “Comedy Central Presents”, while in 2007 Comedy Central aired his stand-up special, entitled “Daniel Tosh: Completely Serious.” In 2009, his own comedy show “Tosh.0” premiered on the 5th of June, which is where Daniel has remained active ever since.

Love Life: Does he have a wife?

As for the romantic life of the writer and stand-up comedian, he’s shared certain info regarding this matter, although it is unknown how much of it was false, and a simple joke. It’s probably true that he dated the actress and model Megan Abrigo from 2009, which he stated during one of his comedy specials, entitled “Happy Hour”. The two were seen attending various events together, but after some time they stopped this routine, and everyone assumed that they’d broken up, although this remains to be confirmed by the celebrities themselves. In March 2014, Daniel’s tweet insinuated that he might be married to a ballerina, however, fans remain skeptical about the authenticity of the tweet, considering how Daniel is a stand-up comedian and no stranger to spreading rumour for the sake of humor. Lastly, there is a rumor that Daniel is in fact gay, since he is an active supporter of LGBTQ rights, although this allegation is in conflict with everything previously stated about his love life.


What is Daniel Tosh’s Net Worth?

Have you ever wondered how rich Daniel Tosh is, as of mid-2018? According to various authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the current total of Daniel’s accumulated wealth is close to $16 million, while “Forbes” magazine estimates that he earns around $11 million per year, which makes him the 9th highest-earning comedian on the planet. As his career continues to develop, the said amount can be expected to increase.

Body Measurements

Concerning the physical attributes of the comedian, his height is 6ft 3ins (1.91m), but there is no current estimate regarding his weight and foot size. His hair is brown and his eyes are deep hazel, while his body shape is generally described as fit.

Social Media Presence

Due to the major influence of social networks, it is nowadays a regular thing for active comedians to nourish a close and active relationship with their fans, for the sake of increasing the popularity of the shows they’re working on, and thus their own net worth. It looks like Daniel himself is active, if not the leading example of this celebrity trend, as his presence is quite ubiquitous on most social networks. His Facebook page currently enjoys over 250,000 followers, while his Twitter account boasts an immensely higher 27 million. Last but not least, although his own show does have its own Instagram page, Daniel apparently doesn’t, or it’s not available to the public.

1Edgy and observational topics
2Sarcastic commentary


1Bill Hicks is a huge influence. I love him.
2I really don't work a whole lot as far as touring, but I do stand-up every night of my life, no matter where I am.
3Here's what I tell people now when they come to my shows: 'First of all, thank you for stimulating the economy, or at least my economic package.'
4I grew up in Florida and went to school there, and ended up going to University of Central Florida.
5It's funny... you can make fun of AIDS or Haiti, but if you make fun of some starlet in Hollywood's looks? That's like the one thing... the line you are not to cross.
6I go to the dentist every six months, I get a cleaning, so... I'm fortunate enough that those fluoride treatments as a child worked. Not getting any cavities.
7I have no idea why people want to watch puppets be the slightly meaner version of the weirdo holding them. It's beyond my comprehension.
8Instead of dumping all my money on an independent film that nobody would watch and most people would make fun of behind my back, I decided, 'I'm just going to buy a house.'
9I don't know, maybe I'm immature, but I still find it funny if I dump cold water on my girlfriend when she's in the shower.
10I don't know why I get away with some things. But I'm not a misogynistic, racist person. Yet I do find those jokes funny, so I say them. And I try to say everything kind of in a good spirit.
11It's not a stereotype if it's always true.
12I really don't work a whole lot as far as touring, but I do stand-up every night of my life, no matter where I am. It's really made the touring a lot less grueling.
13It's the ultimate pinnacle of stand-up to have an hour on HBO, but way more people see Comedy Central, and they've been good to me.
14The great thing about Los Angeles is that you can get so much money in this town by constantly failing. You can get a lot of television deals that don't go anywhere, but you still get paid.
15I actually got a part in 'The Love Guru', that Mike Myers film. I heard it's awful. I got a Razzie award for it, which I'm quite proud of, but I still haven't seen it. I have no plans to branch out.
16[on a girl that he was dating] She says that I always correct her. And I tell her "How do you think it makes me feel, knowing I'm dating someone that's always wrong?"


1He used to work as a telemarketer before his comedy career took off.
2His father was a preacher.
3He has said that he suffers from social anxiety.
4Attended Astronaut High School in Titusville, Florida.
