Daniel Sloss: HUBRIS

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.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
