Daniel Tosh is a fast paced, filter-free Floridian with a style of comedy that can accurately be described as "honest and unguarded." Tosh, however, simply describes his act as "I just make stuff up."Making stuff up has earned the national headlining comedian a huge following. Tosh, who is a graduate of the University of Central Florida tell us, "I’m at a point, now, where people that like what I do come to see me but for the first ten years it was just people who happened to showed up at a comedy club where I was performing."

Earlier this year, the German-born comedian successfully made the jump from the stage to the small-screen with Comedy Central's "Tosh.0," a Web-clip show that debuted in June. Tonight Tosh and his collection of hilarious videos found on the Web are back for a brand new season of Tosh.0 at 10 p.m. on Comedy Central.

Tosh, who told us he'd prefer the title of "The Most Famous Man in Show Business Who Doesn't Have to Work" over "The Hardest Working Man in Show Business," took some time out from his busy schedule to talk to LAist about his similarity to Jesus, rubber-band ball statistics, his pitch for Michael Richards, the Internet's impact on comedy and telling Kobe Bryant jokes in front of Jerry Buss.
