at Edinburgh Playhouse

18th Aug at 6pm & 8pm, 19th Aug at 6pm & 8pm

Back for just four show at this years Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Award-winning TV writer, Sunday Times best-selling author, and comedian, Adam Kay, shares entries from his diaries as a junior doctor in this ‘electrifying’ (Guardian) hour of stand-up and music.

Absolute sell-out Edinburgh Fringe 2016/2017/2018, Soho Theatre 2017 and UK Tour 2018/9.

The accompanying book, 'This is Going to Hurt', is his “hilarious and heartbreaking” (Charlie Brooker), “blisteringly funny” (Jo Brand) memoirs from his former career as a junior doctor, and was published by Picador in September 2017. The book has topped the Sunday Times number one bestseller list since published (over 44 weeks at number one), sold over 1.3 million copies, been translated into 33 languages, and won numerous awards, including the Sunday Times Humour Book of the Year, and the National Book Awards Book of the Year. This is Going to Hurt is also set to be adapted into a major new eight-part comedy-drama, produced by Sister Pictures and commissioned by BBC Drama.

This show will shock, amaze, and amuse, and is in Edinburgh for just two nights, at the Edinburgh Playhouse
