In August 2008, at just 17, Daniel became one of the youngest-ever finalists in the UK’s premiere national comedy competition So You Think You’re Funny? In 2009, his first-ever solo show, Teenage Kicks, premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe, selling out the run and transferring to London for his debut at the prestigious Soho Theatre, whereupon he became the youngest-ever stand-up to perform solo both at the theatre and in the West End. That September, he also made his national television debut as the first stand-up to perform on Channel 4’s Paul O’Grady Show.

In 2010, his new solo Fringe show My Generation also sold out its entire season. His 2011 show The Joker was likewise a total smash-hit, selling an astonishing 10,000 tickets. This show subsequently played to great audiences and acclaim across the UK in a 50 date tour produced by Live Nation after they took him on as their youngest solo comedy client. Similarly, his 2012 Fringe hour The Show also sold out, as did his 2013 Stand-Up, both shows later touring UK, again with over 50 dates each.

His latest show Really…?! has its world premiere at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe and he will then tour it throughout the UK as well as embarking on 20 dates across Europe.

Daniel has toured internationally throughout Australia, South East Asia and throughout Europe. In 2012, he was invited to perform a solo season at the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs comedy festival and he has starred at outdoor festivals including Rockness, Latitude and in 2013 Altitude (comedy and snowboarding in the Austrian Alps alongside alumni such as Eddie Izzard. Daniel featured in ITV2’s documentary about the event)

In 2013 he made his USA debut with seasons at Crackers Comedy in Indianapolis and Comedy Works in Denver as well as his making his USA TV debut with an appearance on the Conan O’Brien Show on 5th December. He was booked to come back on exactly two months later, which in turn led to a third invite—three appearances in just over six months. The first stand-up ever to achieve this, it’s led to Daniel becoming a recurring cast member on the show. In addition, Daniel has signed a talent deal with Conan’s production company Conaco to develop his own show for a Hollywood studio. He also appeared on the critically acclaimed TBS Pete Holmes Show.

His debut live stand-up DVD Daniel Sloss—Live! (recorded at Glasgow’s Kings Theatre) was released on 2Entertain in the autumn of 2012 and in 2011 he won Best New Comedian at the Scottish Variety Awards.

Press Quotes

For those who still view him as a precocious comedy boychild, Daniel Sloss has suddenly become a strong man of stand-up… Sloss is blessed with a sharp mind and a potent stage persona… Scotland is not short of top-class comics these days and Daniel Sloss is not far off being the nation’s heavyweight champion.
✶✶✶✶ Scotsman

A genuine twinkle in his eye and a sharp line in observational humour… Sloss demonstrated a genuine affection for the crowd… The humour is funny, intelligent and charming. As is Sloss.
✶✶✶✶ Edinburgh Evening News

The road to playing a venue like a conference centre for a full month should take comedians at least half a career to achieve. The Fifer Viking [Daniel Sloss] has got there in about half an hour. And he’s even stuck on some extra shows for his drooling masses.
– The List

There are plenty of comedians who have been on the circuit longer than Daniel Sloss has been alive that couldn’t carry off a set with such elegant ease as the baby-faced 21-year-old. Despite his tender years, the Fifer is well on the way to superstardom, thanks to some smart observations and an innate understanding of how to both craft and then deliver a joke.
– Edinburgh Evening News

Star of the future Daniel Sloss… He’s charming, self-deprecating and genuinely funny… If I were a betting man, I’d back him all the way.
– Time Out, London

One-line wunderkind Daniel Sloss… precociously talented… likeable, and possessed of such natural talent as a joke teller that you can almost forgive him for his youth… Has them rolling in the aisles– Scotsman

He has a confidence and talent that’s shocking for a 19-year-old
– Michael Mcintyre, Radio Times, September 2010

Winner Scottish Variety Awards 2011 Best New Scottish Comedian
