This Is Going To Hurt - Secret Diaries Of A Junior Doctor: Adam Kay
Before he became a writer and performer on programmes including Mitchell and Webb and The Now Show, Adam Kay was a junior doctor, living a life of 97-hour weeks and life or death decisions. We’re delighted to welcome his music and comedy show, based on his bestselling book This is Going to Hurt.
Adam started out life as a doctor but after a brief medical career, he swapped his white coat for a microphone. One of the members of Amateur Transplants. With sellout tours and Edinburgh Fringe seasons, his cutting-edge, darkly humourous re-imaginings of pop and rock classics have gained him a cult following across the UK. His songs have over 20 million hits on YouTube (including the iconic London Underground Song) and have been in the iTunes comedy top ten consistently since 2008.
'Extremely funny. Never less than utterly clever' (The Daily Telegraph)
'This made me very, very happy' (Stephen Fry).
