Comedian Daniel Tosh has always been outspoken and outrageous, but until now, he has only used these talents for stand-up comedy. That all changed on his new show "Tosh.0," where he is using his powers to take on the Internet, one blog, vlog, post and tweet at a time. Tosh is a Tonight Show veteran, is frequently on Comedy Central, has been featured on "The Late Show with David Letterman" a number of times, starred in a series of Taco Bell commercials and is one of the few guests we've allowed to remain in the studio after taking off his pants. The third season of "Tosh.0" premieres Tuesday. January 11th at 10pm ET on Comedy Central.
Andy Kindler is a legend among his peers for being one of the bravest men in comedy, because while many others write jokes about relationships, airlines, bathroom habits or even pop culture, Andy enjoys talking about a topic that has long been taboo, the profession of stand-up comedy. For example, not only does Kindler give a humorous dissertation on “The State of the Industry” at the world famous Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal each year, he's also the author of the National Lampoon article, The Hack’s Handbook, which is a satirical "how-to guide" for up and coming comics. When not analyzing the joke business, Andy is a regular contributor to "The Late Show with David Letterman," "The Daily Show" and hosts "Live at Gotham" on Comedy Central. Andy has also served as one of the judges on NBC's reality show "Last Comic Standing" and was the voice of Mort the Mortician on the FOX animated series "Bob's Burgers." Follow Andy on Twitter.
