Adam Kay first appeared at the Petworth Festival in 2016, but since that time he has gone ‘stratospheric’ thanks to two volumes of memoires about his time as a junior doctor, variously This is Going to Hurt and ‘Twas the Night Shift Before Christmas... The former alone has sold in excess of 2 million copies.
As an award-winning live performer, Adam has sold out multiple Edinburgh Fringe runs, West End seasons and UK and international tours. His current tour of This is Going to Hurt has been seen by over 200,000 people.
Adam is supported by Ada Campe, Dr Naomi Paxton’s ‘extravagantly mischievous’ alter-ego, winner of the prestigious New Act of the Year Show in 2018 and a brilliantly crowd-pleasing comedian-cum-magician.
