Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Scottish comedian Daniel Sloss has added more UK live dates, returning to the road in October 2019.
Tickets for the new dates, kicking off in Cardiff on 1 October 2019 and running through to Dunfermline on the 14 December 2019, will be available from 10:00 on Friday 24 May 2019.
Last year the comedian released two full-length specials of this stand-up shows on Netflix. The streaming service is now showing Sloss’ two new shows, Dark and Jigsaw, which was previously toured as So?, available to all worldwide.
Take a sneak peek at what to expect at one of his shows:
Sloss is no stranger to the international comedy scene. The two shows were filmed in Los Angeles and Sydney, and he has appeared on many late-night talk shows, including Conan O’Brien, where he has performed eight times. He is also a regular at many international comedy festivals including Sydney Comedy Festival and Altitude Festival.
Born in Kingston-upon-Thames, Sloss got his first big break whilst doing work experience on series two of BBC’s Mock The Week, after his mother met Frankie Boyle.
He first performed at the iconic Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2008, which lead to him rejecting his university offer from the University of Dundee and embarking on a full-time career in comedy.
The following year, he returned to Edinburgh Fringe Festival with his debut full-length solo season, Daniel Sloss – Teenage Kicks. Due to the success, he took this show to London’s Soho Theatre making him the youngest comedian to perform a solo set at both Edinburgh Fringe and in the West End.
Since then, his fan base has only continued to grow globally, allowing him to tour and perform at iconic venues all over the world.
