Third West End run for Adam Kay

Two-week run at the Vaudeville

Adam Kay has announced a third West End run for This Is Going To Hurt, based on his bestselling memoirs of his time as a junior NHS doctor 

The tour has sold more than 100,000 tickets over the past year including sell-out seasons at the Duchess and the Garrick.

His new dates will be at the Vaudeville Theatre on The Strand from July 1 to 13, except the 7th.

At one of his earlier London shows an audience member fainted – and a swarm of doctors rushed to their aid. Kay joked: ‘There were probably more doctors in that room than in University College Hospital around the corner’
