In the wake of this week's Daniel Tosh rape joke controversy, the Comedy Central star is trying to get as far away from that topic as possible.

The comedian reportedly asked editors and producers to remove any reference of rape from the pilot episode of his new series, Brickleberry.

The only issue? That's what most of the pilot is about, obviously.

Tosh reportedly gave the crew 24 hours to make those changes before the animated series is shown at Comic-Con Friday night in San Diego.

The Tosh.0 star's camp has yet to return requests for comment.

After making a female audience member the subject of his joke about rape during a stand-up routine last Friday, Tosh sincerely apologized.

While complaining about offensive jokes at a Tosh show is akin to objecting to the noise at a Metallica concert, there is a line he can cross.

Did he in this case? Should he have apologized?

Daniel Tosh has been known to push the envelope, but a recent joke about an audience member being gang-raped took it too far, even by his standards.

On Friday, the star of Comedy Central's Tosh.0 was doing standup at The Laugh Factory in L.A. and said at one point that rape jokes are always funny.

After a female audience member vocally disagreed, things got ugly.

According to the woman, Tosh said, "Wouldn't it be funny if that girl got raped by like, 5 guys right now? Like right now? What if a bunch of guys just raped her."

The woman and her friend, both "completely stunned" and "humiliated," high-tailed it out of there as the audience guffawed in response to Tosh's wisecrack.

After she documented the experience on Tumblr, Tosh linked to the post and tweeted, "all the out of context misquotes aside, I'd like to sincerely apologize."

Smart move, though Laugh Factory owner Jamie Masada was quick to defend him:

"Comedians tell jokes and sometimes they can be off color ... Daniel Tosh is one of the most caring people I know. He had no intentions of hurting anyone."

"I understand where she's coming from, but [Tosh] didn't attack [her] ... I feel bad for her and I apologize to her. If you are a member of the audience and you start dishing out something to a comedian, you better be able to take it."

Also fair. What do you think? Should Daniel have apologized?

 

UPDATE: The woman complained to the manager but was offered and accepted a refund and two complimentary tickets to the club, so beef quashed.

So many questions surround the mysterious Casey Anthony video diaries.

Why is she recording these cathartic messages in the first place? How did they get out? Were they hacked from her machine? Is she profiting somehow? Where is she?

In an exclusive interview on Comedy Central's Tosh.0 Friday night, Daniel Tosh asked none of the above. Instead, it seems he confused Anthony for the Wii Fit Girl.

These things have a way of happening with Tosh. We forgive him.

Hustler CEO Larry Flynt is going to be out of town for a few weeks. That's nice for him. Obviously, he wants Daniel Tosh to run Hustler while he's gone.

Flynt just shot a video message just for the Tosh.0 host, saying "I'm gonna be out of town and I WANT YOU to run Hustler's editorial meeting."

Why Daniel Tosh of all people? Flynt's camp says he's kicking around idea of a guest editor ... and he just likes the guy. That's all there is to it.

Who knew Larry was such a big fan of viral video-related comedy?

A Hustler rep tells TMZ, "[Tosh] will be allowed to plan the magazine's editorial meetings for one month ... he will be given a blank canvas."

Flynt's even offering Tosh his own office with a "Hustler model secretary." Hustler hasn't heard back from Tosh regarding the unique offer.

Yung Funk, a pre-teen boy who has apparently decided to embark on a rap career, is hitting back at all the haters in his hometown of Naples, Florida.

Growing up in "The 239" like this youngan, the song and video below hit close to home for Comedy Central's Daniel Tosh. Hey, it's better than Alabama.

Anyway, we'll try to stay positive here, because if there's one thing that's clear after listening to Yung Funk do his thing, it's that he hates getting hated on.

Seriously, he hates those dirty haters ...

Daniel Tosh's detest for the University of Alabama has become a running gag, thanks to two Crimson Tide alumni on his staff and Tosh's love of the Miami Dolphins, the team Nick Saban quit after two years to become head coach at Alabama.

Tosh has expressed his hatred for Saban many times on Comedy Central's Tosh.0, but tying it into jokes about a natural disaster marked a new high/low.

Tuesday, Tosh asked viewers to donate money toward the state's tornado relief efforts, but couldn't resist yet another dig. With a photo of a destroyed house behind him, he said, "Apparently God hates Nick Saban more than I do."

In keeping with the show's quasi-mean-spirited, yet hilarious tone, he made several other comments about Alabamans, which earned a mixed response (offended and amused) from those in Dixie. Likely just what he's going for.

NOTE: You can text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 and help Alabama get back on its feet ... so that Tosh can continue eviscerating it personally.

Jon Stewart makes the most headlines.

Stephen Colbert puts the most people and things On Notice.

But you might be surprised to learn than neither of these Comedy Central hosts bring in the most viewers. As of last week, that distinction officially belongs to Daniel Tosh, host of Tosh.0.

The show is as simple, and hilarious, as it gets. Tosh stands in front of a green screen and makes fun of clips/videos on the Internet. Such material has earned Tosh.0 an average of 2.4 million viewers, about 400,000 more than tune in for The Daily Show.

Comedy Central has already renewed the series for a third season, while it's also producing a nationwide stand-up tour for Tosh.

So, you tell us: Who would you rather... watch?
