Daniel Sloss Hubris (Scotland)

Hubris
Century and MZA present

Daniel Sloss Hubris (SCO)

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.

Hot on the heels of ground-breaking smash-hit Daniel Sloss: X which toured non-stop for 17 months across the globe, with extra dates also selling out as fast as they could be added –throughout Europe, UK, USA, 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 the US and Canada and became the first UK comedy special to make its UK premiere in cinemas, with its nationwide release at Vue.

Daniel has two Netflix specials streaming in 190 countries, 26 languages – DARK and Jigsaw, the infamous latter now credited with breaking up over 95,000 couples and cited in over 200 divorces (fans even bring their divorce papers to gigs for him to autograph).

He has sold out six New York solo off-Broadway seasons, appeared on US TV’s Conan ten times, broken box office records at the world’s biggest arts festival in Edinburgh and toured live in over 50 countries.

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