Hot on the heels of his ground-breaking global smash hit, ’Daniel Sloss: X’, Scotland’s international comedy superstar returns to the UK with his all new and 11th solo show ‘Daniel Sloss: HUBRIS’.
Lauded by the ancient Greeks, hubris is the devastating, dangerous and of course exciting characteristic which often led to the hero’s downfall. So exactly how do you follow a global smash-hit juggernaut tour of 300 performances? With a phenomenal new show that doesn’t have a theme or a twist or require any trigger warnings. ‘Daniel Sloss: HUBRIS’ is the next chapter in this odyssey.
The groundbreaking ‘Daniel Sloss: X’ tour encompassed an extraordinary 17 months of non-stop touring from August 2018 to December 2019. Extra dates kept being added and, as fast as they were added, they sold out - throughout 40 countries, including all across Europe, UK, U.S., Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and even packing a Moscow arena (becoming Russia’s biggest-ever English language comedy show). Filmed in Sydney (and directed by Sloss), ‘X’ can now be seen on HBO in U.S. and Canada and in February 2020 became the first homegrown comedy special to make its UK premiere on the big screen, with its nationwide cinema release exclusively at Vue.
Daniel’s previous two Netflix specials ‘DARK’ & ‘Jigsaw’ are streaming in 190 countries, 26 languages with the infamous ‘Jigsaw’ now credited with breaking up over 75,000 couples and cited in over 130 divorces world-wide (with fans even bringing their divorce papers for him to autograph at shows).
He has sold out six New York solo off-Broadway seasons, appeared on U.S TV’s ‘Conan’ ten times, broken box office records at the world’s biggest arts festival, the Edinburgh Fringe and has, to date, toured in over 50 countries.
HUBRIS is Daniel’s new show and it’s an absolute humdinger – BOOK EARLY!
