Daniel Tosh bets on Patriots, pays for friend’s cancer treatment

Comedian Daniel Tosh is a funny dude, but he also has a serious side.

Thus, when fellow comedian and friend Andy Ritchie was diagnosed with a brain tumor and needed help raising money for treatment, Tosh did the best thing he could do: put down a $25,000 bet on New England to be up at halftime of last night’s game between the Patriots and the Miami Dolphins. Tosh posted a picture of his winning betting slip on Twitter.

That’s a great gesture on Tosh’s part, especially since he’s a ‘Fins fan and his hate for the Patriots is infamous. But the good news is that after auctioning off items from his hit show Tosh.O, he put down a winning $25,000 and walked away with nearly $21,000 in winnings. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, he explained the next step.

“Once I double it, [Ritchie] can do whatever he wants with it; go on a lion-hunting safari or get treatment,” he said.

It just goes to show that not all celebrities are greedy and money-hungry, and Tosh’s selfless action has seriously raised the bar in terms of charitable donations.
