Daniel Tosh can do a whole lot more than make fun of video clips.

Tosh, who grew up in Titusville and went to the University of Central Florida, was a seriously up-and-coming stand-up comic who had done hilarious turns on all the late-night shows when he started doing a show on Comedy Central.

"Tosh.0," with Tosh commenting sharply but smirkily on real people whose embarrassing moments have been immortalized online, was meant to last for just a handful of episodes. But thanks to Tosh's acerbic wit, likable persona and an endless supply of people doing dumb stuff and posting it online, the show's still going strong after four years.

Tosh will be at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa June 27 with what's billed as his "June Gloom Tour." Expect his droll sense of humor to be fully intact, but probably not a lot of Youtube videos.

Opening is Jerrod Carmichael, whom a lot of people think might be the next comedy superstar. He was named one of "10 Comics to Watch" by both "Backstage" and "Variety." And he has a role in "The Goodwin Games," a midseason replacement show that runs on Fox art least until next week, when its first season ends.

The Straz website warns that this show isn't for kids. "Mature audiences only," it says, so you might have to spring for a baby sitter if you want to see Tosh and Carmichael.

Details: 7 and 9:30 p.m. June 27, Straz Center for the Performing Arts, 1010 N. MacInnes Place, Tampa. Tickets: $59.50 plus service charge and up. Information: 813-229-7827, www.strazcenter.org.
