After two smash-hit Netflix specials (‘Dark’ and ‘Jigsaw’), selling out eight New York solo off-Broadway seasons, appearing in U.S. TV’s ‘Conan’ ten times, breaking box office records at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and touring over 54 countries, Scottish comedy superstar and writer Daniel Sloss is all set to make his India debut of his world tour, ‘Daniel Sloss: CAN’T’
BookMyShow, India’s leading entertainment destination is the producer of the Indian leg of ‘Daniel Sloss: CAN’T’ global tour. MZA is an international award-winning boutique talent management and production company based in Scotland.
Commenting on his first ever India outing for his tour, Daniel Sloss said, “I’ve wanted to perform in India for a long time and I’m thrilled to finally get the opportunity. It’s been a long time coming but now it’s here; Indian fans on my social media can stop finally pestering me to come! I look forward to seeing you all very soon and to being part of India’s very first Laughing Dead Comedy Festival. See you on March 16th, 17th and 18th!”
Daniel Sloss was the youngest comedian to perform a solo season in London’s West End, at the age of 19. Known for his dark humour-laced punch lines that can make him uncomfortably hilarious, Sloss’ previous groundbreaking and hugely successful shows include ‘HUBRiS’ (the biggest global comedy show for most of 2021 as reported by Pollstar) and the acclaimed, ground-breaking ‘X’ (which played a staggering 300 performances world-wide spanning United Kingdom, North America, Australia, Hong Kong Japan amongst others selling out additional seasons in New York and Los Angeles). The live concert film of ‘X’ was released nationwide at Vue, becoming the first comedy special to have a UK cinematic premiere. Leading publishing house Penguin also published Daniel’s first book ‘Everyone You Hate is Going to Die’ in 2021, and his Netflix specials ‘Dark’ & ‘Jigsaw’ are streaming across 190 countries (and in 26 languages).
The final performance of his “Daniel Sloss: CAN’T” India Tour will end with the show headlining the much-awaited Laughing Dead Comedy Festival in Mumbai (March 18th-19th), a star-studded showcase of the biggest, baddest and silliest voices in Indian comedy, produced by DeadAnt Media along with BookMyShow as the official and exclusive ticketing partner. TheDeadliners (headlining acts at Laughing Dead Festival) will see a slew of top-rated, much-loved comedians commit acts of mass (s)laughter on the stage at the iconic Mehboob Studios and have Mumbaikars laughing their guts out!

Daniel Sloss is an internationally acclaimed and award-winning Scottish comedian who has become one of the biggest global names in stand-up. He has, to date, created 13 solo shows, was the biggest ticket selling comedian in the world for most of 2021, has performed seven New York seasons off-Broadway, appeared on U.S. TV’s ‘Conan’ ten times, broken box office records at the world’s biggest arts festival, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

His two hour-long specials for Netflix, ‘Daniel Sloss – Live Shows’ (‘DARK’ and ‘Jigsaw’), were released in 2018, streaming in 190 countries and 26 languages).
In 2017-2018 Daniel created and toured a new show called ‘NOW’, written largely in response to the public’s somewhat overwhelming reaction to DARK and Jigsaw, the latter now infamous as being credited as causing over 350,000 breakups and 600 divorces world-wide. (Daniel has stopped counting). A forensic look into the growing trend of people showing no regard for right and wrong let alone the rights and feelings of others, Daniel renamed it SOCIO when it was filmed in 2019 in the US.
His extraordinary tenth solo show ‘Daniel Sloss: X’ received universal acclaim during its record-breaking, global tour that spanned 300 performances across 40 countries in 2018-2019. Filmed in Sydney, ‘X’ premiered on HBO in the USA and Canada in 2019 and in February 2020 made history with its UK release at Vue cinemas, becoming the first special to nationally debut on the big screen.
In February 2020, ‘Daniel Sloss: HUBRiS’, premiered in New York, just before the global pandemic shut the world down. As restrictions lifted he performed as many live shows as was safe and legal – accelerating rapidly into becoming another global smash-hit hit tour. HUBRiS became 2021’s biggest touring solo comedy show as well as the 5th biggest ticket selling event of any genre for most of that year (as reported by Pollstar). 2021 saw Daniel’s first book “Everyone You Hate is Going to Die” published by Penguin Random House prestige imprint Knopf.
