Daniel Sloss Hubris (SCO)

Extra Show Added Tue 4th May, 7pm. Book Here.

Internationally acclaimed, award-winning Scottish comedian, Daniel Sloss, is bringing his highly anticipated 11th solo show, HUBRIS, across Australia.  

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 require a trigger warning). Daniel Sloss: HUBRIS is the next chapter in this odyssey.  

Daniel has received an exemption from the Australian Government and will quarantine for two weeks before embarking on his whirlwind Australian tour 


At only 30-years-old, but performing since he was 16, Sloss has firmly established himself as one of the world’s most significant and successful touring stand-ups of his generation. His critically acclaimed 2018-2019 smash hit, Daniel Sloss: X, delved into the controversial subject of toxic masculinity and received acclaim for its deeply funny and incredibly moving observations about gender and sexuality. 


Daniel Sloss: HUBRIS is Daniel’s new show and it’s even more relevant after the unprecedented global events of 2020.
