Adam Kay - This is Going to Hurt: LIVE

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 & 2019.

The accompanying book, ‘This is Going to Hurt’ is a Sunday Times bestseller, and is being turned into a major BBC series.

‘Painfully funny. The pain and the funniness somehow add up to something entirely good, entirely noble and entirely loveable.' - Stephen Fry

Welcome to the life of a junior doctor: 97-hour weeks, life and death decisions, a constant tsunami of bodily fluids, and the hospital parking meter earns more than you. Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, Adam Kay's This is Going to Hurt provides a no-holds-barred account of his time on the NHS front line. Hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking, this diary is everything you wanted to know – and more than a few things you didn't – about life on and off the hospital ward.

'I’d prescribe this book to anyone and everyone. It's laugh-out-loud funny, heartbreakingly sad and gives you the lowdown on what it’s like to be holding it together while serving on the front line of our beloved but beleaguered NHS. It’s wonderful' - Jonathan Ross

'So clinically funny and politically important for supporters of the NHS that it should be given out on prescription' - The Guardian

Book of the Year at National Book Awards - Winner of a record four National Book Awards (Book of the Year Non-Fiction Book of the Year, New Writer of the Year, Zoe Ball Book Club Book of the Year) - Sunday Times number one bestseller for a record-breaking 54 weeks - Best-selling non-fiction title of 2018 - International number one bestseller - Now being adapted as a major comedy-drama for BBC Two - Sunday Times Humour Book of the Year - Winner of Books Are My Bag Reader's Choice award - Winner of Books Are My Bag Non-fiction prize - Winner of Blackwell's debut book of the year - Winner of iBooks book of the year - Esquire book of the year - Bestselling e-book of all time - Book of the Year selection in The Times, Guardian, Spectator, Daily Express, Sunday Times, Mail on Sunday

‘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 heartbreakingCharlie Brooker
