Daniel Sloss Sheds Some Light on his New York Show ‘Dark’

Daniel Sloss doesn’t have time to explain comedy to you. The 25-year-old comedian, who has been performing since his late teens, is by all means a veteran comic at this point: Five appearances on Conan, eight years performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, sold-out tours worldwide, and even a popular TED Talk from TEDxEaling, titled It’s Just a Story. And the principle of his 2012 talk still rings true to his shows today, particularly when it comes to his most recent show Dark.

But the character which has received the most attention and affection is Louie Anderson’s portrayal of Galifianakis’s mother.
