  • adam kay OT large
Booking from 22 October 2020 until 8 November 2020
Running Time: 70 minutes
Acclaimed junior doctor-turned-comedian Adam Kay brings his one-man show This is Going to Hurt, based on the best-selling book, back to the West End for a run of socially-distanced performances.

Offering first-hand insight into the lives of junior doctors, This is Going to Hurt is based on the secret diaries Kay kept whilst working 97-hour weeks in hospitals. A striking blend of gory stories, heart-warming tales and comedy songs, Kay’s one-man show is as funny as it is sad, as entertaining as it is educational.

Former junior doctor Adam Kay is now an award-winning comedian and writer who, as well as his chart-topping memoir, has since written for a string of hit comedy shows such as Mrs Brown’s Boys, Very British Problems and Mitchell and Webb.

Kay is also adapting his Sunday Times best-selling book for television. The series, which will air in 2021 on BBC Two, will be led by stage favourite Ben Whishaw

Don’t miss the return of this smash hit show – This is Going to Hurt will play 11 performances at the Apollo Theatre from 23rd October 2020.
