There are a lot of people who don’t like Daniel Tosh. They find his humor low brow and his brand of comedy overly mean.
I’m not one of those people. I enjoy Tosh.0, a variety show where Daniel takes some of the best and worst of the web and makes jokes. And the skits, especially his “Web Redemption,” were spot-on for awhile (though admittedly have gone pretty stale).
Anyway, on Tuesday’s episode, Tosh got a bit serious talking about his comedian friend Andy Ritchie, a man suffering from brain cancer. Tosh talked about Ritchie’s GoFundMe page, and even tweeted about it after the show.
Tosh wanted to do more for his friend; he wanted to go that extra mile to help him cover medical expenses. So, he went the degenerate gambler route, and put $25k on the Patriots to cover the three-point spread in the first half against the Dolphins for Thursday Night Football.
And what do you know? Brady, Belichick and the boys came through in the clutch, taking a 19-0 halftime lead and ultimately defeating the Dolphins in impressive fashion. Well done all around.
As for what’s being done with the money, Tosh says he doesn’t care:
“Once I double it, [Ritchie] can do whatever he wants with it; go on a lion-hunting safari or get treatment,” said Tosh.
Tosh bet it all on the New England Patriots to cover the first-half 3-point spread against his beloved Miami Dolphins during the Thursday night game.
