If you are a fan of the Shaqtin a Fool segments on Inside the NBA and think it deserves it’s own 30 minute show then you are in luck because TruTV green lit “Upload” which is a viral video compilation show with sketches with Shaq. Basically it’s Tosh.0 but with Shaq.
Ironically, me and Daniel Tosh are longtime childhood friends from Titusville Florida where we grew up in high school as huge fans of Shaq during his Orlando Magic days. When Daniel went to UCF and first tested the stand up comedy route one of his most popular targets was Shaq. Daniel then went to Miami to host his first tv show and eventually landed in LA to do Tosh.0 which is so popular that it spawned shows like Shaq’s Upload.
I was born in Cali, married a woman from Miami and now live in (Houston) Texas near where Shaq grew up (San Antonio) before playing in all of the places mentioned above. Now here I am writing about growing up with Daniel, his brother Andrew and watching Shaq and thinking about the future Ballislife TV show which will be made in Cali.
Funny how things work and hopefully Shaq’s show “Upload” will be just as the funny.
Be sure to check out Daniel Tosh on his summer June Gloom tour.
