at Pentland Theatre - Pleasance at the EICC

14th August at 8.30pm & 16, 17th & 18th August at 5pm & 10pm

Back for one night only 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, Soho Theatre 2017 and UK tour 2018.

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.  It received across-the-board critical acclaim, entered the Sunday Times best-seller list at no. 3, and hasn’t left the list since, won the Non fiction Book of the Year & Readers Choice Award at the BAMB Readers Awards, and is one of Blackwell's debut books of the year.

This show will shock, amaze, and amuse, and is in Edinburgh for just one night, at the Pentland Theatre - Pleasance at EICC

“Painfully funny.”   Stephen Fry

"Viscerally raw and passionately delivered." ★★★★ Chortle

“Electrifying” ★★★★ Guardian
