It’s no secret that we’re big Daniel Sloss fans at DeadAnt. We even had the Scottish comedian headline the inaugural edition of our Laughing Dead festival last year. That performance (and an assortment of sustained threats from fans who missed it) went down so well that we’re bringing him back, this time for an eight-city tour! Sloss will take his show Can’t across the country in March, with dates lined up in New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Goa, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad and Kolkata between 15-24 March 2024, accompanied by special guest Kai Humphries.
Produced by our live events division DeadAnt Live, this tour will see Sloss make good on a commitment he made on the stage at Laughing Dead last March. “My first India trip in 2023 was such a joy that I promised on stage then I would be returning as soon as possible… which was a big mistake, as clearly I have no idea how anything in India works,” he told DeadAnt. “So, by way of apology, I’ve finally found a way to come back and to make it up to all you comedy-loving bastards.”
In Can’t, Sloss—the self-described “Steve Irwin of comedy”—addresses everything from fatherhood to the constant whinging about “cancel culture” with irreverent, subversive wit. Shows sold out in under 10 minutes last year, and that was before fans could even imagine that he’d do shirtless push-ups (#IYKYK), so act fast or forever hold your peace in his comments sections and DMs.
“We are thrilled to partner with MZA for the much-anticipated return of Daniel Sloss for an 8-city tour in India,” stated Ravina Rawal, Founder-CEO of DeadAnt. “Daniel’s unforgettable headline act at the first edition of our Laughing Dead comedy festival last year not only captivated the audience, but inspired and challenged what comedy can be in the hands of a master. His return isn’t just a cheeky nod to the clamour from fans left wanting more—it’s a bold stride forward for DeadAnt.”
This tour is part of ‘The Loop’, a new DeadAnt Live initiative. “‘The Loop’ is the embodiment of DeadAnt Live’s ambition to create space for laughter, provocative comedy, and cultural dialogue throughout India, which we are sure will resonate with both the seasoned comedy super-fan and the curious newcomer,” said Rawal. “At the very least, it’ll give you something to laugh/cry/complain about on social media.”
“Hopefully I can keep bringing my new tours over to you until I die a young death due to either alcohol abuse or by being murdered by an Indian fan who was too late to get tickets last time. (Don’t be that fan – please),” Sloss signed off.
Don’t commit a felony. Tickets here. Jaldi jaldi!
