The Funniest Show On TV? The Funniest Person On TV?

The Funniest Show On TV?  Maybe it's Tosh.0 on Comedy Central, Wed. nights 9:30pm, central time.

The Funniest Person On TV?  In my humble opinion it's Daniel Tosh, host of, you guessed it, Tosh.0.  I choose Tosh over Ricky Gervais and his show on HBO only because Gervais has the benefit of one Kyle Pilkington.  Tosh is, what I like to call, "offensive but, funny, so it's OK to laugh."  Some could attempt to discount Tosh.0 as merely a YouTube/internet video clip show.  That would be like people saying The Soup with Joel McHale (another great show and funny dude-wow there is some stuff worth watching on TV) is just a TV clip show.  Those same people probably think Big Trouble In Little China is just a "B" movie.  But, I digress.  Tosh.0 is so much more than just an "internet video clip show."  Yet, here I am imploring you to check out a clip.  Is that irony?  I don't know.  Alanis Morisette, I blame you for my confusion about what is ironic and what is just a coincidence:

And no, I'm not being paid to promote the show.  But gosh, I wish I was.  But, I'd only accept payment in the form of non-sequential, unmarked bills, a mix of 20's and 100's, delivered at random, never-used-twice drop areas.  And Tosh.0's people would go along with it.  Don't worry, I'd report the income on my taxes.  I really do believe in the rule of law.  But, the Tosh.0 people wouldn't necessarily know that.  They'd have to be wondering if they were somehow helping me break the law by paying me in this crazy way.  And that would let me know they really care.
