Tased Phils fan hit by 'Tosh.0'

Steve Consalvi, the Phillies fan who got Tased last year after running out onto the field during a game at Citizens Bank Park, takes "Tosh.0" host Daniel Tosh up on his offer of "Web redemption" tonight (10 p.m., Comedy Central).

Tased Phils fan hit by 'Tosh.0'

It took five security members and a taser to halt this rally-towel-waving teen on the field at a Phillies-Cardinals game in May. Thirty seconds of evading cops, creating a scene funny enough for Ryan Howard to bury his face in laughter and causing a near-riot in Citizens Bank Park landed Steve Consalvi with much more than the nickname "Taser Boy." He also received local and national media attention, six months of probation and, in his words to his father leading up to his brazen decision to run onto the field, "a once-in-a-lifetime experience."

Steve Consalvi, the Phillies fan who got Tased last year after running out onto the field during a game, takes “Tosh.0” host Daniel Tosh up on his offer of “Web redemption” tonight (10 p.m., Comedy Central).

Here's a clip from the interview that suggests even online redemption comes at a price: more ridicule.

Better than a Taser, I'm guessing.

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
