Daniel Tosh's Net Worth: The Comedian Is Worth More Than You Think

Daniel Tosh is no stranger to controversy. The stand-up comic and voice actor seems to be in the news nearly as often for making people mad as he is for making them laugh. That ability to grab attention, however, is part of the reason for the comedian's success. Tosh's style of confrontational and often offensive humor made him right at home in the comedy scene of the Internet Age. In a time of short attention spans, Tosh has capitalized on the premise that people move from joke to joke, and clip to clip, very quickly.

In addition to his stand-up specials, Tosh is most well-known for his long-running Comedy Central series Tosh.0. The show explores the internet by way of viral video, guided by Tosh's commentary and observations. While the series received mixed reviews when it debuted, it was also something of a surprise hit, inspiring imitators like Ridiculousness. The series has been such a hit, in fact, that Daniel Tosh has earned a surprisingly high amount of money.

Daniel Tosh is one of the highest-paid comedians

In 2013, Daniel Tosh ranked in the top 10 of the highest-earning comedians. According to Forbes, Tosh ranked ninth (tied with Gabriel Iglesias) of the year's top earners with an estimated net worth of $11 million. Part of his success at the time was attributed to his social media following; he was noted as the comedian on the list with the biggest online presence. Still, this amount is humble compared to what Tosh is estimated to be worth today.

By 2020, Tosh's net worth is estimated to be a whopping $20 million (via CelebrityNetWorth). His almost-doubled net worth can be connected to his continued success with Tosh.0 which, as of this writing, is scheduled to conclude in November 2020. The comedian also concluded his run on the animated-series Brickleberry in that time, and headlined 2015's "The Great Nor'easter Tour." Tosh also has continued to host "Tosh Saves The World," a yearly benefit show that has featured other big-name comedians like Hannibal Buress, Chelsea Peretti, and Kumail Nanjiani. While Tosh appears to be laying relatively low these days, the comedian clearly has his money in the right places.
