Daniel Sloss's comedy engages, enrages, offends, unsettles, educates, comforts, and gets audiences roaring with laughter--all at the same time. He has two Netflix comedy specials: DARK , a brilliant, laugh-out-loud meditation on our relationship with death, and Jigsaw , which needles apart the ideas of love, romantic relationships, and marriage--and, according to Sloss, singlehandedly caused 185 divorces and 95,000 breakups (he's got the tweets to back up those numbers). His HBO special, Daniel Sloss Live: X , is a miraculous 85 minutes on the topic of male toxicity.
Now, in his first book, he picks up where Jigsaw and his other specials left off, and goes after every conceivable kind of relationship--with one's country (Daniel's is Scotland), with America, with lovers, ex-lovers, ex-lovers who you hate, ex-lovers who hate you, with parents, with best friends (male and female), not-best friends, with children, and with siblings. In Everyone You Hate Is Going to Die , every relationship gets the hilarious, brutal (but always incisive) Sloss treatment as he explains why all of our relationships are fragile and ridiculous and awful--but, just maybe, also valuable and meaningful.
