‘Daniel Sloss: HUBRIS’ is 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 arrives on the Rock of Gibraltar.
Lauded by the ancient Greeks, hubris is the devastating, dangerous and of course exciting character trait that often led to the hero’s downfall. So, how does one of the world’s hottest stand-ups follow up on a extraordinary show like ‘X’ (dealing with sexual assault), or two Netflix specials (streamed in 190 countries, 26 languages) -‘DARK’ (about grieving) & ‘Jigsaw’ (credited with over 120,000 breakups and cited in over 300 divorces with fans even bringing their decree nisi’s for him to autograph at shows)? 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. Having started in comedy aged just 17, Daniel has so far 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 Festival Fringe, where he has sold out 11 month-long season in August 2021.
Daniel has toured across an amazing 54 countries (the most of any comedian working today) and his last tour ‘X’ took him all around the world – playing in 40 countries with 300 performances throughout Europe, UK, U.S., 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 U.S. and Canada and in 2020 it became the first UK comedy special to premiere in UK cinemas, with a nationwide Vue release - just before Covid-19 shut the world down. Marvel has even drawn Daniel as one of their bespoke superheroes and his debut book “Everyone You Hate is Going to Die” will be published on 12 October 2021 by Penguin Random House.
Daniel became the first stand-up back touring into large scale theatre such as The London Palladium, with shows selling out as fast as they can be added. And the June issue of industry magazine Pollstar declared him the world’s biggest ticket selling comedian (from his April-May 2021 tour of Australia) and the 5th biggest live tour of any genre on the planet so far. ‘Daniel Sloss: HUBRIS’ is Daniel’s incredible new show. We are excited to bring this ground breaking artist to GIBRALTAR and we recommend that you
