BACKSTAGE RIDER: Comedy

Daniel Tosh

Daniel Tosh

Along with a variety of standard demands like first-class airfare and hotels, limo service, and delicious Smartwater, the comedian Daniel Tosh’s tour rider contains one unique provision.

When he does college appearances, the 37-year-old star of Comedy Central’s “Tosh.0” likes to do some assigned reading.

As seen in his rider, the comedian’s representatives note that, “For college dates, please provide a book you think Daniel might like to read.”

In light of the performer’s rape joke controversy, perhaps some mischievous program board members will now consider shelling out for Tosh reading material like “The Feminine Mystique,” “Against Our Will: Men, Women, and Rape,” or “The Second Sex.”

The University of Central Florida graduate will surely get the joke. (2 pages)
