Daniel Tosh is in the news right now for making a joke that offended one person in a comedy club. Even though the full story from other people suggests it wasn’t the joke it was reported to be.
The story goes that Tosh joked about rape and then suggested it would be funny if the woman who heckled him was then raped herself. But eye-witnesses state the suggestion to talk about rape came from an audience member and when the woman at the center of the row verbally complained Tosh joked that it sounded like she had been raped by five guys. That’s very different.
This video shows Tosh ejecting two drunk guys sat at the front of one of his shows. I wish there was a video of the actual incident in the news but sadly there isn’t.
There are three reasons I couldn’t be a stand-up comedian: 1. I’m not funny. 2. I hate public speaking. 3. I couldn’t deal with hecklers. Daniel Tosh is fine on all counts.
