This is Going to Hurt…More sees Adam Kay share entries from his phenomenally popular diaries as a junior doctor in an evening of stand-up and music. This live comedy show will also feature brand-new stories from his forthcoming book Undoctored: The Story of a Medic Who Ran Out of Patients.

 

Tickets will go on sale Friday 11th February at 10am.

 

As an award-winning live performer, Adam has sold out multiple Edinburgh Fringe runs, West End seasons and UK and international tours. His live tour of This is Going to Hurt was one of the most-attended UK shows of recent years, seen by over 250,000 people and described by the Guardian as “electrifying” and “blissfully brilliant” by Mail on Sunday. Kay’s adaptation of This is Going to Hurt is now a BBC One television series.

 

On the brand-new tour, Adam said: ‘It feels like the natural progression of my surreal 2022 to go from Ben Whishaw playing me on television to performing at Wembley. 2023’s really going to have up its game – perhaps I’ll be made king or move to Jupiter. I can’t wait to get This is Going to Hurt… More out on the road and subject the UK to more of my repulsive stories.’

 

Adam Kay is an award-winning writer and comedian. His debut book, This is Going to Hurt, is a literary sensation: a Sunday Times number one bestseller for over a year, it has sold over 2.5 million copies, making it the bestselling UK narrative non-fiction book of the 21st century. It is the bestselling non-fiction ebook of all time and has been translated into 37 languages (and counting). Adam adapted This is Going to Hurt as a major comedy-drama series for the BBC and AMC.

 

This is Going to Hurt has won ten national awards including a record-breaking four National Book Awards. His bestselling follow-up, Twas The Nightshift Before Christmas was a number one bestseller, and sold over 500,000 copies. His anthology Dear NHS raised over £400,000 for charity and featured contributions from Emilia Clarke, Ed Sheeran, Emma Thompson, Emma Watson and Paul McCartney. His children’s books Kay’s Anatomy and Kay’s Marvellous Medicine have been translated into 26 language and sold over 350,000 copies.

 

Undoctored: The Story of a Medic Who Ran out of Patients is published by Trapeze, 15th September 2022 in hardback, e-book & audio
