Adam Kay: This Is Going To Hurt

‘Intersperses horror stories from the NHS frontline with a catalogue of sublimely silly spoof songs, and some blissfully brilliant wordplay’ ★★★★★ Mail on Sunday 

‘Viscerally raw and passionately delivered’ ★★★★ Chortle 

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 Duchess Theatre 2018.

The accompanying book, ‘This is Going to Hurt’ is a Sunday Times bestseller, and is being turned into an 8-part BBC series. Copies will be available to purchase and for signature after the performance.

  • Thought provoking

    7 October 2018

    Brilliantly delivered and makes you stop and think.

  • Good, but the book was better.

    4 October 2018

    Thought the book was great and not altogether a comedy. Show was comedic with somewhat ‘amateur’ songs reminiscent of early med school - maybe that was the idea(?!) I don’t think the rant at the end worked - maybe another show or at the beginning - First rule of show biz - leave the audience wanting more - more fun not more ranting?!
