Daniel Sloss: Finding comedy in chaos

“I understand my comedy isn’t for everyone, I would never want to be a comedian that appealed to everyone,” admits the Scottish comedian.

Describing his sense of humour as a “darkness”, Sloss often questions offensive comedy in his stand up. “My intention is never to offend…you’re choosing to be offended.”

“I don’t enjoy truly offending anyone, I’m still growing and learning. [But] there is a level of narcissism to being offended by comedy that I am jealous of. You go to a comedian’s show and sit there and think, ‘is this about me?’, that’s all being offended is.”

The Crown: Deconstructing the Coronation

The lavish ten-part Netflix series became another outstanding triumph for writer Peter Morgan and a distinguished team . Critics noted a “startling attention to detail in everything from costumes to sets” and thought it hard to see how it could be better.

The show set out to tell the inside story of the most famous addresses in the world, Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street, and it did just that, exploring the intrigues, love lives and machinations of post-war Britain.

She even had a blink-and-you-miss-it role in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

The show was initially inspired by the novel of the same name by Jay Asher and focused on the suicide of Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford), who created tapes detailling the 13 reasons why she killed herself.

Series three ended with the shocking death of Monty (Timothy Granaderos), who was in prison following his sexual assault of Tyler (Devin Druid).

So far it is not known how Monty died, but he was used as a scapegoat to take the blame for the death of Bryce (Justin Prentice), but the truth of his innocence may not stay hidden.
