Comedian and Host of American Comedy series Tosh.0 Daniel Tosh likes to comically involve himself in every topic possible and even takes part in controversial discussions in social media and his shows. Contrary to his chatting nature, he doesn’t like to disclose any information about his love life but here’s what we scrapped up from the humorist’s closet.
Jokester and his Girlfriend
The German-born American comedian, Daniel Tosh dated Model and Actress Megan Abrigo from Feb 2009. News about his relationship with Megan surfaced after he ranted on his show’s special “Happy Thoughts.” Megan most known for her work in Deal or no Deal’s first four seasons as the briefcase lady was seen with Tosh in different places. They were also spotted in Gansevoort South hotel in Miami Beach.

But there's always been issues between today. Daniel repeatedly joked about his girlfriend multiple times, and his significant other did the same. Obviously, there was a breaking point, and the water seems to have drowned the bridge at some point.
Recently they have stopped appearing together in different places and events. Moreover, the news regarding Daniel and Megan has stopped appearing in tabloids and social media. We don’t know if they ever got married or just had an affair. Well, this silence about the couple’s relationship hints that they might have separated but who knows?
Dreaming about a ballerina wife?
In March 2014, Daniel wrote in a Twitter post about his marriage. The comedian shared in the post that he is married to a ballerina wife. He also expressed his happiness and gratitude of having a woman who makes his day beautiful.
being married to a ballerina has made everyday a little more beautiful. #soblessed— daniel tosh (@danieltosh) March 29, 2014
Well, we are gravely confused with his post. Is it true that Daniel is married? Or is it among the serious-seeming jokes Daniel often makes?
Satirical Genius honestly serious about Homosexual issues
It's hard to take anything Daniel says seriously, the comedian is quite satirical and goes around making fun of gays, women, men, crossdressers and transgenders alike. But surprisingly Daniel is quite passionate about Gay rights. Despite being known for making various jokes about Homosexuals, ironically Tosh is a strong Gay rights supporter. Although Daniel was born to Presbyterian minister father, he loves to talk about gay issues. He speaks for gay people and believes that people should be free to choose their partner. He shared about his notion of same-sex marriage in an interview with Paulduane.net. He said,
"I’m not gay. I am not married, and I don’t even necessarily believe in the institution of marriage as our culture currently practices it. That being said, consenting adults should be able to do enter into whatever contracts they wish."

Whether Daniel is truly passionate about defending queer folks or was just joking, we will never know. Maybe Daniel just respects people who live up to their homosexual desires?

Crude Joker Goes too far
Daniel Tosh is known for crossing lines, but during a Laugh Factory show, he went one step way too far.
In 2012 during Tosh’s laugh factory show, Tosh made a crude joke talking about how rape jokes were always funny when a female interjected and spoke about Rape jokes not being funny at all, Daniel commented saying
Wouldn’t it be funny if that girl got raped by like five guys? Like right now? What if a bunch of guys just raped her?”
Daniel trying to make a joke at the expense of a poor girl from the audience backlashed hard, and the entire internet went up and arms about it. Daniel Tosh’s image took a hard hit following this event. The once-called Dave Chapell’s white equivalent’s reputation was ruined, and his show ratings plummeted. Facing all these issues and the media turning against him, Tosh apologized for his comment and had been working on repairing his image ever since.
