NEW YORK, June 5, 2012 – Finally, fans can own a piece of “Tosh.0” as COMEDY CENTRAL® will release compilations of the hit series on Blu-ray and DVD. The Blu-rays and DVDs will be released in multi-episode collections which will be compiled according to host Daniel Tosh’s famous sartorial selections. Over the course of the series run, each new set of episodes has featured Tosh donning various themed wardrobe choices including hoodies (season 1a), cardigans (season 1b), casual jackets (season 2a), deep Vs (season 2b), collared shirts (season 3a), exposed arms (season 3b), collegiate apparel (season 3c), high fashion (season 4a) and currently sick kicks for the ladies (season 4b).
The first collection of “Tosh.0″ episodes, “Tosh.0: Hoodies,” includes 10 full-length episodes and will be released on Blu-ray and DVD by COMEDY CENTRAL Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment on Tuesday, June 12. The two-disc set includes popular “Web Redemptions” for the Afro Ninja, Miss Teen South Carolina and Chris Crocker, among others, along with guest appearances by Dave Attell, Bree Olson and Fred Willard, and much more.
