Season will go ahead - update from Daniel 01/04/20
"I promise that none of us want to be writing about trivial things in the scheme of what is happening all around us with COVID-19 but just to let you know "my people" aren't canceling my Ed Fringe season of HUBRIS yet. I'm an Edinburgh local and my venue is a wonderful year round venue so I have the small luxury of a bit more time. We will absolutely not do anything that isn't safe or legal or in shite taste, and anyone who wants a refund from the fringe can of course have that. Absolutely. But maybe this clusterf*ck will be over and we'll all be desperate to get together, however socially distanced we might need to be and to be able to laugh in the same room with friends again. Who knows? You can also hang on to your tickets and get a refund later if the gigs do have to be pulled. All ongoing sales will be from The Queen's Hall box office and details on danielsloss.com. Please stay safe, be kind and hopefully see you in August."
The all-new, 11th solo show by Scotland’s international comedy superstar, hot on the heels of his ground-breaking, global smash hit “Daniel Sloss: X”.
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 across 40 countries? 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 extraordinary ‘X’ tour toured non stop for 17 months across the globe, with extra dates also selling out as fast as they could be added - throughout Europe, the UK, the US, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and even packing a Moscow arena (becoming Russia’s biggest-ever English language comedy show). The film of ‘X’ is now showing on HBO in the US and Canada and became the first UK comedy special to make its UK premiere in cinemas, with its nationwide release at Vue.
Daniel’s previous two Netflix specials ‘DARK’ and ‘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 worldwide (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 US TV’s ‘Conan’ ten times, broken box office records at the world’s biggest arts festival in Edinburgh and toured in over 50 countries.
‘Daniel Sloss: HUBRIS’ is Daniel’s new show and it’s an absolute humdinger. BOOK EARLY!
