This Is Going To Hurt - Secret Diaries Of A Junior Doctor: Adam Kay
Award-winning comedian Adam Kay shares entries from his diaries as a junior doctor in this “electrifying” (Guardian) evening of stand-up and music.
Absolute sell-out Edinburgh Fringe 2016, 2017 & 2018, Soho Theatre 2017, UK tour and West End 2018.
The accompanying book, ‘This is Going to Hurt’ is a Sunday Times bestseller, and is being turned into a major BBC series. Copies will be available to purchase and for signature after the performance.
‘Intersperses horror stories from the NHS frontline with a catalogue of sublimely silly spoof songs, and some blissfully brilliant wordplay’ Mail on Sunday
‘Hilarious and heartbreaking’ Charlie Brooker
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).
