    Are shows like Tosh.0 taking comedy too far?

    I was watching Tosh.0 and this guy was skateboarding. During the skateboarding, he took a dump and the show didn't even blur it out.

    Would you say shows like Tosh.0 and South Park take comedy too far?

    Anything involving fecal matter in real life is taking things too far. Always. South Park is just $#@!ing hilarious.

    Tosh.O and South Park are my 2 favorite shows. I do not think they go too far at all. But I have a twisted sense of humor.

    There are no off-limit subjects in comedy, provided it's still funny.

    My mother saw it while I was watching it and she said this:

    "What the $#@! is so funny about a guy taking a $#@! in the road?"

    I agree with my mother.

    Well, I'm sure you're not only one since the Tosh has been on tv for a while.

    It's just not for me and my poor mother then.

    Oh it is certainly not for everyone. But I bet you would do a double take, followed by a faint giggle.

    This.

    I actually hate that kind of "comedy". But it's still up to us to switch off or avoid them.

    On a related note; I never get why comedians EVER have to apologise for bits that they use in the context of comedy or trying to be funny.

    If it's not funny then it's not funny - don't laugh; switch it off,walk away etc - that should really be the end of it.

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    I like Daniel Tosh but I don't think Tosh.0 is very funny at all. I don't think he's taking comedy too far but I don't think he's doing much good comedy on that show to begin with.

    What the hell is Tosh.0? all i can think of is that it exposed some my little pony porn fad and all these pony humpers started loosing their $#@!.


    Also the skateboard dumper is old, theres one from a moving car window aswell if your curious about motion pooping!
    There once was a man named Sidney, he used to collect shells on the beach. everything was going well for him. untill he stopped and took a look, he had a glance and a stare and realised he what he was reading.
    It was a forum signature full of nonsense

    Its advertised lot on Sky channels I saw part of an episode once and it seemed pretty much like you've been framed. Which was funny in the 90s.

    Well it is just viral videos on the net with the comedian (I use the term loosely) commenting on them.

    Tosh's, an actual professional comedian, comments are what make it great and stand out.

    I think Tosh is pretty funny and so if South Park. I don't think they take things too far but sometimes I don't find it funny but that's just because I don't think the joke is funny.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    Haha, I can't stand his humour. His show is more like The Soup though, more topical.

    Basically it's not for everyone. I on the other hand have a $#@!ed up sense of humor and Tosh is one of my favorite shows. It's for the people like us that are twisted in the head.
