Carly Hallam is an experienced screenwriter and actress, but who is perhaps better-known for being the wife of Daniel Tosh, a super-popular American comedian and producer, and the host of the show called “Tosh.0”. Let’s find out more about Daniel’s wife, her age, family, measurements, etc.
Early life and family
Carly Hallam was born on 14 February 1985, in Florida USA, so under the sign of Pisces and holding American nationality. Nothing is known about her family, parents or any siblings, as Carly never mentions any personal details, keeping her private life low-key. However, it is known that from her childhood she has always had a good sense of humor, and easily made friends, as many people liked her jokes and her light character.
Carly matriculated from her local high school in Florida in 2003, and later graduated from Florida State University with a BA in English. She doesn’t share if she attended any writers courses, however, she benefited from her education finding a good job of a screenwriter.
Carly started her writing career in 2009 when she joined the team of writers for the “Tosh.0” show, hosted by her future husband Daniel Tosh. She did her best to establish a good name, and even tried herself as an actress in the movie called “New Low” (2010) in which she landed the role of a movie starlet. However, this experience helped her to understand that she wanted to be behind the cameras and keep on writing (even though she later appeared in several episodes of the “Tosh.0” show, playing minor roles).
Since 2013 she has been working as the screenwriter of the super-popular comedy show entitled “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (2013 – present), which helped her to become famous and well-known in the circles of screenwriters and producers. Even though she received many offers from other shows, she sticks to the projects she constantly works for – “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “Tosh.0”, as they are her most stable income sources.
She also tried to write comic articles for such online sources as McSweeney’s – her article entitled “10 Ways To Wear That Little Black Dress In Your Closet” was posted there on 6 December 2017 and got a lot of views, even though it was far from being serious – it was a list of jokes about absurd situations for wearing a classy little black dress.
Personal life, husband Daniel Tosh
Carly hasn’t revealed information about any former boyfriends she dated before she met Daniel Tosh. The couple haven’t revealed the precise date of their first meeting, but it is obvious they probably met on the set of the “Tosh.0” show as Carly, has been working there since 2009, while Daniel is the creator of the show and recruited the authors himself. Carly and Daniel seem not to mention the gap between their ages, as Daniel is 10 years older than Carly. They married on 15 April 2016 in a private ceremony on one of the beaches of Malibu, California. As of 2019, they don’t have any children. It is known that Daniel dated Megan Abrigo, an American model and actress, who appeared in early episodes of his show in 2009. However, the couple split in 2010, through rumors about their upcoming wedding.
Who is Daniel Tosh?
Daniel Dwight Tosh was born on 29 May 1975, in Boppard, Rhineland-Palatinate of then-West Germany, so under the sign of Taurus and holding German nationality. He was born into the family of a Presbyterian minister, along with a brother and two sisters. Daniel’s family moved to Florida, USA when Daniel was around five years old, so he attended a local high school in the US. In 1993 he matriculated from Astronaut High School, located in Brevard County of Titusville, Florida, and then entered the University of Central Florida, graduating in 1996 with a BA in marketing.
Even though his first job was a telemarketer at Central Florida Research Park, he later shared that he wouldn’t even hire himself as he was so bad at all job interviews he ever had.
So he had to find another way of earning money, and appeared on the Canadian comedy festival called “Just for Laughs” in 1998, as a stand-up writer and comedian. However, his true fame spread around the world after his performance on “The Late Show” hosted by David Letterman – his successful performance gained him access to such popular shows as “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, “Premium Blend” on Comedy Central and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”. Later he hosted his own shows called “Tosh.0” and “Daniel Tosh: Happy Thoughts” launched on Comedy Central, and became the producer of such shows as “Brickleberry” and his own project, “Tosh.0”. As of 2019, he is touring around the world with his own stand-up show, and is to visit Australia for the first time in January 2020.
