Quirky Comedy With a Reality Check

Are you a fan of stand-up comedies? Do you love the witty jokes that leave you doubling over in laughter but, at the same time, hold up the mirror to give you a hard-hitting reality check? Or simply, are you bored of the over-the-top drama in your regular entertainment programs and looking for some fresh, eccentric fun? If you check any or all the boxes, congratulations! Your wait is over. Adam Kay’s This Is Going To Hurt is coming to the Palace Theatre in the West End soon. In an unprecedented one-man comedy show, Adam Kay, the junior doctor turned comedian, brings you ample gags with his unique lurid body comic pieces and melodious parodies and spoofs that will keep you hooked for seventy minutes straight. But, most importantly, it is his edgy anecdotes that steal the show. The show, running since 2016, has been a massive success. Over 200,000 people have witnessed him making smashing comic moments on the stage. The numerous runs of the show include the all sell-out Edinburgh Fringe runs that were held between 2016 and 2019, as well as several West End runs and UK tours from 2017 to 2020. Evidently, the current run is also going to be a sell-out. So, don’t miss the opportunity. Book your This Is Going To Hurt tickets as soon as they come out.

The Funny Doctor

The main content of Adam Kay’s one-man stand-up show is his experiences as a junior doctor working in the NHS. He shares on stage some pieces from back in the NHS days from his journal with edgy anecdotes and electrifying energy. The stand-up performance is majorly based on his memoir of the same name, which is all set to be adapted for a major TV series on BBC. The award-winning comedian narrates his stories as a frontline NHS worker. While he offers some crazy incidents and experiences, his routine also includes a memoir of the dire state of affairs endured by the health workers. He tells the audience under what dire conditions they had to work, even 36 hours shifts at times, and how poorly they were treated by the politicians as well as NHS staff. But, if you think that things are going to be overtly emotional, then you are mistaken. Kay presents all the reality checks in his unparalleled satirical style, masterful wordplay, and even flared with punning songs and spoofs of popular musical numbers. Your This Is Going To Hurt tickets are getting you all these in one place. What else can you expect for a mind-blowing evening?

Double Delight

Just as the stand-up show, Kay’s book, derived from his journal entries, is also widely popular. If you want a copy for yourself, you don’t have to sift through bookstores anymore. The This Is Going To Hurt tickets will not just get you up close with the star comedian but also makes available signed copies of the book at the venue itself. So, don’t miss the opportunity.
