Open/closeReviews and Quotations

‘Simply world class… An endearingly unabashed blend of arrogance, awkwardness and self-effacing anecdotes delivered with precision timing, perfectly-placed silence and unfettered confidence… Nothing is off limits… Sloss skilfully weaves sensitive subject matter into a hilarious tapestry of politically incorrect and sexually inappropriate zingers… his humour intelligently and ironically calling out the hypocrisy of human nature.’

‘There is something effortlessly charming about Daniel Sloss… slick and hilarious… he makes you think about yourself and your relationships, and then side-swipes you with a brilliant gag. While you will come away thinking about your life choices, you will also come away with sore ribs from laughing…‘Sloss is a festival highlight. See him’

‘Brutal observational humor’
stars
Time Out New York
‘Stunningly poignant… deeply dark comedic style… more than a little bit evil… Sloss proves you don’t need a university education to know how to do your research and construct an intelligent argument. In fact, he is brilliantly skilled at doing just that and making it achingly funny at the same time’

At 27, Scotland's Daniel Sloss has, incredibly, now racked up his tenth Fringe outing. Tackling taboos (death, grooming) has become his forte and this latest continues the trend. X (EICC) is a stunner of a show. 5 stars
