Daniel Sloss – The Joker (MZA And Get Slossed Productions)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

As soon as Daniel Sloss asks the show’s sign language interpreter to sign the word ‘twat’, it becomes clear that this won’t be an evening of highbrow comedy. The fresh-faced 20 year old commands the crowded tent with unexpected confidence, and it’s soon apparent that Frankie Boyle’s protégé has been doing this for a while. However, for all that his posters seductively promise about his numerous TV appearances, Sloss’s routine comes as a bit of a disappointment. He’s got a several good gags including ones about his ‘prick’ hair and the natural “snog, marry, avoid” order of relationships, but too much of his material revolves around his age. He’s certainly a bit of a joker but don’t expect much more.

Assembly George Square, 3 – 29 Aug (not 4, 5, 16), 7.35pm (8.35pm), £10.00 – £13.50, fpp62.
