Daniel Sloss is an internationally acclaimed and award-winning Scottish comedian who has become one of the biggest global names in stand-up.
He has, to date, created 13 solo shows, was the biggest ticket selling comedian in the world for most of 2021, has performed seven New York seasons off-Broadway, appeared on U.S. TV’s ‘Conan’ ten times, broken box office records at the world’s biggest arts festival, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
His massive global live tours span 54 countries – so far!
His two hour-long specials for Netflix, ‘Daniel Sloss – Live Shows’ (‘DARK’ and ‘Jigsaw’), were released in 2018, streaming in 190 countries and 26 languages).
In 2017-2018 Daniel created and toured a new show called ‘NOW’, written largely in response to the public’s somewhat overwhelming reaction to DARK and Jigsaw, the latter now infamous as being credited as causing over 350,000 breakups and 600 divorces world-wide. (Daniel has stopped counting). A forensic look into the growing trend of people showing no regard for right and wrong let alone the rights and feelings of others, Daniel renamed it SOCIO when it was filmed in 2019 in the US.
His extraordinary tenth solo show ‘Daniel Sloss: X’ received universal acclaim during its record-breaking, global tour that spanned 300 performances across 40 countries in 2018-2019. Filmed in Sydney, ‘X’ premiered on HBO in the USA and Canada in 2019 and in February 2020 made history with its UK release at Vue cinemas, becoming the first special to nationally debut on the big screen.
In February 2020, ‘Daniel Sloss: HUBRiS’, premiered in New York, just before the global pandemic shut the world down. As restrictions lifted he performed as many live shows as was safe and legal – accelerating rapidly into becoming another global smash-hit hit tour. HUBRiS became 2021’s biggest touring solo comedy show as well as the 5th biggest ticket selling event of any genre for most of that year (as reported by Pollstar).
2021 saw Daniel’s first book “Everyone You Hate is Going to Die” published by Penguin Random House prestige imprint Knopf.
SOCIO was released on 9 December 2022 and is exclusively streaming on DanielSloss.com
