We're convinced Comedy Central comedian Daniel Tosh has a mild obsession with our city.
That's the only logical reason why he would have chosen Tempe's Arizona State University for his College Campus Invasion Challenge even though we didn't ask (yeah, we're not letting that go . . .ever) and why Phoenix made it onto the very short list of cities he'll be hitting up for a live show this fall.

Tickets will go on sale online through Live Nation Friday, May 17, at 10 a.m.
The only other cities in which Tosh will perform are Seattle and Las Vegas (natch), where he and his green screen will host a total of eight shows at The Mirage between August and November. The tour kicks off in Salt Lake City on May 30 and will hit more than two dozen cities before arriving in the Valley.
Fans probably remember the last time Tosh paid Phoenix a visit and the pretty damn hilarious episode he filmed around ASU. It involved trying to cram the college experience into one day, some really drunk students at Casey Moore's and tweet-and-greet during which the comedian
insulted met with ASU's famous coeds.
Check that clip out below. Really, it's great.
