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.
