[D]aniel Sloss, the global stand-up hit and regular face on UK TV, is bringing his new show NOW to the Old Fire Station in Carlisle for the 29th November.
Daniel Sloss: NOW is the stunning new show from Scotland’s internationally acclaimed and award-winning stand-up, heralding the 26-year-old’s remarkable tenth Edinburgh Festival Fringe season and making its’ world premiere at the EICC.
Star of TV’s ‘Conan’ (a record seven appearances), Comedy Central’s ‘Drunk History’ and ‘Sunday Night at the Palladium’, and the 2016 winner of Sydney Comedy Festival’s Best of the Fest Award [International] Daniel has so far performed nine sell-out Edinburgh Festival Fringe runs (for each of the last consecutive six years performing to an astonishing 10,000 people), two solo New York off-Broadway seasons, released a DVD, given a ‘Tedx’ Talk (aged 19) and featured on ITV’s ‘Sunday Night at the Palladium’, Comedy Central’s ‘Drunk History’ as well as writing and starring in 6-part internet sitcom M.U.F.F. He tours extensively to rave reviews and since last August has performed his previous Award-winning show SO? 120+ times throughout Australasia, USA, UK and across 20 European countries.
NOW, what’s next….?
In August 2008, aged just 17, Daniel became one of the youngest-ever finalists in the UK’s premiere comedy competition So You Think You’re Funny? as well as performing on a double-bill show at his first Edinburgh fringe, Life in 2D. Since then he has brought a new solo show to the fringe every year – and sold it out.
He premiered his first hour-long show, Teenage Kicks, in 2009, sold every seat and transferred to make his London debut, becoming the youngest-ever stand-up to perform solo both at the prestigious Soho Theatre and in the West End. In 2010 & 2011 his shows My Generation and The Joker were both smash-hits, each selling out full runs in 400 seat venues.
The Joker subsequently played to great acclaim across the UK in a 50-date tour produced by Live Nation after they took him on as their youngest solo comedy client. His 2012 The Show and 2013‘s Stand-Up each sold out their full festival runs at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC), with subsequent 50+ date tours all over the UK. 2014’s Really…?! and 2015’s show DARK did the same, each premiering in Edinburgh (EICC), then extensively touring the UK, including a season in London and being performed across over 16+ countries in Europe and Australia including seasons at Sydney, Melbourne, New Zealand, the Perth Comedy Festivals.
Daniel has twice been a featured solo artist at Montreal’s Just For Laughs comedy festival (2012 and 2016), performed in Hyde Park for Barclaycard’s British Summertime Festival and in addition the Australian festivals, also regularly appears at a host of other international arts events including Glastonbury, Latitude and Altitude San Francisco’s Sketchfest and LA’s Riot.
In February 2016 Daniel Sloss: DARK transferred to New York for an off-Broadway season at Soho Playhouse which saw Daniel featured on the front page of the prestigious New York Times Arts section.
The same year saw him make his fifth and then a record-breaking sixth appearance on US TV’s Conan and sell out more shows in Los Angeles, before launching his new show, Daniel Sloss: SO? – the 2016 solo show and his sequel to DARK. SO? went on to sell nearly 11,500 tickets at the Edinburgh fringe (his sixth consecutive year of achieving such remarkable audience numbers) before embarking on another smash-hit tour, including playing to 600 people on a Monday night in Estonia as well as in Transylvania where the darker and more blood-thirsty material went down rather well.
SO? has, remarkably, played 120+ dates since it premiered, transferred to New York in 2017 for another run at the Soho Playhouse, then toured Australia for three months to sell-out crowds. The final performance of SO? was filmed for release at the 2017 Sydney Comedy Festival.
