A 28-year-old comedian Daniel Sloss has claimed that his show broke 4,000 relationships and resulted in 17 divorces.
Sloss made his Netflix debut a few days back and gained international fame for his two stand-up specials, Dark and Jigsaw. They were live streaming in 190 countries in 26 languages.
"The joke is 20 minutes long and was never intended to break couples up. It's just a joyous effect of it," Daniel told Daily Record.
He has been posting messages on his Instagram.
"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 partners. Before Netflix, the tally was 500. It's now more than increasing - and those are only the confirmed numbers, people who have messaged me."
"I wouldn't be shocked if it was four times higher. It's a love letter to single people, pointing out that most of the time being single is better than being in a relationship," he adds.
One of his fans wrote on Twitter, "I wanted to say you can add a divorce from a three-year emotionally 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."
However, not all the feedback he received was positive. He has also received criticism from some people.
But he joked: "Those statistics aren't funny."
Daniel Sloss' live shows, Jigsaw and Dark, are available on Netflix now.
