Daniel Sloss: Meet The Man Who Broke Up 4,000 Relationships And Caused 17 Divorces – In Just 10 Days
While we all may find this bold claim hilarious or question its veracity, Daniel Sloss has revealed that he’s been responsible for more than 4,000 break-ups and 17 divorces – and all that in just ten days – saying further that he’s got the messages to back it up.
Daniel, a Scottish comedian, further rubbishes the notion that everyone has a soul mate, saying the message society puts out is:
“If you are not with someone, you are broken. If you are not with someone, you are incomplete. If you are not with someone, you are not whole.”
In his latest love-themed Netflix special, “Jigsaw,” Sloss pokes fun at, among other things, the “puzzling relationship patterns,” including dead-end relationships.

The Mirror UK quoted the 28-year-old, from Fife, as saying that a 20-minute joke in one of his shows has been responsible for more than 4,000 break-ups.
His live stand-up routines have been streaming on Netflix since September 11 – yes, it only became available to view 10 days ago.
As a result, we are made to feel as though we need a partner to feel complete – meaning many settle and end up with the wrong person.
“We’ll force this f***ing person into our lives because we’d much rather have something than nothing,” he explains.
Last week Daniel told the Daily Record:
“The joke is 20 minutes long and was never intended to break couples up. It’s just a joyous effect of it.
“It’s a love letter to single people, pointing out that most of the time being single is better than being in a relationship.
“Turns out it resonates with people so much they’re dumping their s*** partners.
“Before Netflix, the tally was 500. It’s now more than 2500 – and those are only the confirmed numbers, people who have messaged me.
“I wouldn’t be shocked if it was four times higher.”
It is believed that the advice has struck a chord with people all over the world, who have been messaging Sloss to thank him for changing their lives.

One wrote: “Hi Daniel! I am 23 years old and I wanted to say you can add a divorce from a three-year emotional abusive marriage to your list.
“I just finished watching your show, and I was having doubts about whether or not I had made the right decision.
“However, the questions and situations you brought up confirmed that it’s OK to say that I deserve better.”
Another said: “Guess you can add another to your list. Watched jigsaw and just wanted to say thank you.
“Certainly not the message I expected from a comedy special but the analogy has been stuck in my head ever since and you were right.”
