In a beautiful blast of profanity, Daniel Sloss takes us through an hour on the art of Scottish swearing, life after lockdown and the hierarchical dynamics of a farm. Following his critically acclaimed shows Jigsaw and DARK, hubris is everything you’d expect from the award winning comedian, with a little more heart.
Daniel Sloss, Scotland’s comedy prodigy, is back and will not disappoint.
Whilst we’re treated to the usual array of black comedy, clever comments and undeniable confidence; HUBRIS seems a little more reflective than his other shows, offering a glimpse into the life of a comedian without the spotlight. Sloss chats about the changing dynamics in his relationship and grappling with purpose in a life without an audience.
Despite insisting his comedy is far from clever; Sloss is playful with pace and sound, mixing the mundane and the meaningful of the last year into a polished set which shines. From frankness to physicality, Sloss moves from throwing out jokes on the edge of his barstool to clowning around with ease. The dreams of a german shepherd and the queue for a rollercoaster were acted out with confidence and caricature, adding depth and variety to the set. His talent for storytelling transports us to better days spent around a table in the pub and it’s clear the whole room is in rapture - ready for the next round and the next big laugh.
HUBRIS is a classic set with enough humility and humbleness to offset the darkly brilliant gags. Grab a pint and get ready for everything from her majesty’s children to hamsters on flights. Daniel Sloss, Scotland’s comedy prodigy, is back and will not disappoint.
