Renowned Scottish comedian Daniel Sloss brings his critically acclaimed, tenth solo show DANIEL SLOSS: X to HBO in the U.S. and Canada, while he continues to tour with it across the rest of the globe. Debuting SATURDAY, NOV. 2 (10:00-11:30 p.m. ET/PT), the special was taped in April before a live audience at Sydney, Australia’s Enmore Theatre and features Sloss deftly skewering society’s gender constructs and mining his own personal experiences to reveal the humor inherent in today’s fraught masculinity, providing insights that are alternately humorous and profound, along with Sloss’ unexpurgated Scottish-level swearing.
The special will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms.
Declared “dirty, sweet and clever” by the New York Times, Daniel Sloss showcases his deliciously dark, razor-sharp wit and brazen disregard for avoiding uncomfortable topics in a comedy special, directed by Sloss, that strives for a more informed perspective on gender and sexuality. Incisive, ballsy and proving nothing is off limits, DANIEL SLOSS: X is an outrageously funny and truly original special that continues his legacy of intelligent and thought-provoking twists, and promises to leave a lasting impression long after Sloss lands his final brilliant joke.
At 29 years old, Daniel Sloss has made a record number of appearances on “Conan,” released two hour-long comedy specials (2018’s “DARK” and “Jigsaw”) and performed five solo off-Broadways runs, with over 7,000 people seeing his SoHo Playhouse shows in 2019 alone. For over a decade, Sloss has been one of the biggest draws at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the world’s biggest arts and comedy festival, presenting a new hour each year. Already one of the biggest international comedians touring today, he has performed in 40 countries to-date, including: the U.S., Canada, Japan, Australia, the UK, Ireland, and over 30 other European countries. On November 23, he will perform the largest-ever English-language comedy show in Russia at a 3,500-seat arena in Moscow, with simultaneous translation being supplied via headsets.
