Following the success of his number one best-selling non-fiction book, ex-Doctor and current comedy writer, Adam Kay, is headed to the Garrick Theatre with his sold-out show, Adam Kay: This Is Going To Hurt.
Based on diaries from his time as a junior doctor in the NHS, This Is Going To Hurt covers everything from gruesome operations, memorable patients, embarrassing situations, and the work, dedication and sacrifices involved in working for the National Health Service. Adam’s anecdotes spanning several years on various labour wards will make you laugh, cringe, appreciate your doctor, and possibly never want kids.
His one-man show was awarded five stars during its run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016, 2017 and 2018, plus its UK tour. It’s now coming to the West End for an extremely limited run which is predicted to sell out in no time.
Adam Kay is a British writer, comedian, and author. His writing credits include TV shows Crims, Mrs Brown’s Boys and Mitchell and Webb. He trained in medicine at Imperial College and was a junior doctor from 2004 to 2010.
The best-selling book This Is Going To Hurt, which resulted from his show of the same name, has had over half-a-million copies sold to date. It is being turned into an eight-part BBC series by Adam himself.
At the end of each show, copies of the book will be available to purchase, as well as the opportunity to get your book signed by Adam.
Hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking, This Is Going To Hurt is a collection of tales from the frontline of one of the UK’s most valuable resources. It gives you a unique insight into a life so often glamourised and the people who are risking their own health to maintain yours.
This Is Going To Hurt will play at the Garrick Theatre on selected dates from 2-6 October 2018.
