Adam Kay

Adam Kay is an award-winning comedian, TV writer, and Sunday Times bestselling author and columnist.

In between Tour dates and Book Festivals, Adam is in huge demand for corporate events and parties. He brings his experiences to life as a Speaker, giving a humorous, inspiring, fascinating performance. He is a consummate Corporate performer, having entertained at private events such as Prince Harry’s 30th birthday at Buckingham Palace, for Deloitte, The British Medical Association, Soho House, and Imperial College, to name a few. With sell-out UK and International tours, West End and Edinburgh Festival Fringe seasons, Adam’s cutting-edge, dark humour has gained him a cult following throughout the UK.

His wealth of experience in the entertainment and corporate sector, makes him perfect for events – a comedian who is passionate and hugely knowledgeable about his subject matter, whilst unfailingly funny about it Picador approached Adam about turning his live show ‘Fingering A Minor On the Piano’ – Adam’s darkly humorous re-imaginings of modern day pop and rock classics with a deeply confessional look back on his former life as an obstetrician and gynecologist, into a book, to detail his experiences, and so his first tome was born; ‘This Is Going To Hurt‘, which was published in 2017.

Welcome to the life of a junior doctor: 97-hour weeks, life and death decisions, a constant tsunami of bodily fluids, and the hospital parking meter earns more than you. Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, Adam Kay’s This is Going to Hurt provides a no-holds-barred account of his time on the NHS front line. Hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking, this diary is everything you wanted to know – and more than a few things you didn’t – about life on and off the hospital ward.

‘Painfully funny. The pain and the funniness somehow add up to something entirely good, entirely noble and entirely loveable’ Stephen Fry

‘Laugh-out-loud funny, heartbreakingly sad.. wonderful.’ Jonathan Ross

‘Finally a true picture of the harrowing, hilarious and ultimately chaotic life of the junior doctor in all its gory glory, dark comedy and unavoidable sadness.’ Jo Brand
