When Daniel Tosh comes to town this Saturday, it will be almost a year to the day since the comedian informed an audience member that it would be funny if she were gang-raped. The funniness was a surprise to the woman and to most other people as well, so it’s a good thing there was an outcry of revulsion; otherwise, Tosh threatening strangers with gang rape might have become his big show closer like Gallagher’s Sledge-O-Matic.
But you never know, so bring some plastic sheeting if you’re sitting in the first few rows, gang.
Even if the show winds up light on rape humor, those eager to be offended should still take heart. Tosh, host of the popular Comedy Central series Tosh.0, also tells jokes about racial minorities, the physically challenged, and the poverty-stricken. So basically, if you are in any way different from Daniel Tosh, this is the show for — or at least about — you.
The show is also recommended for fans of smirking.
Tosh will perform twice this Saturday at the Fillmore Miami Beach (1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach). Doors for the 7 p.m. show open at 6. Doors for the 9:30 p.m. show open at 9. Ticket prices range from $59.75 to $75 plus fees and are available at fillmoremb.com. There is a “mature content” warning, although “mature” is probably being used here in a counterintuitive way, like when “pitted” actually means the pits have been removed from the olives
