Adam Kay finds an intruder in his dressing room

...taking a shit

comedyAdam Kay has revealed how he found a woman ‘taking a shit’ in his dressing room after his gig tonight – after she’d raided the drinks she found there.

In a series of tweets, the medic turned comedian and author told of his shock at finding her backstage at the Glasgow Theatre Royal after his show  This Is Going To Hurt.

He wrote: 'A lovely gig at Glasgow Theatre Royal @KingsandRoyal - and then back to my dressing room where a woman was taking a shit. 

‘In fairness to her, it was in the bathroom part of the dressing room, rather than on the floor or the table. 

‘She was pretty hammered, which might have been something to do with all the wine she'd demolished from my extremely showbiz rider. 

‘She'd also tried to get through the beer but couldn't find the bottle opener. She'd also been through my stuff, most of which was happily quite boring, though hadn't found my phone and wallet.

‘I asked what she was doing and she told me she thought it was the toilet, which I guess it technically was. I imagine she got lost on her way to the loo at some point during the show (maybe keep some of those doors locked in future, guys?) and found  herself in my dressing room, then decided that the wine and nibbles were a more appealing prospect than the show itself so just decided to smash through that instead.’

A few minutes later he added a postscript: ‘One of my wine glasses was found in the auditorium - so she'd in fact helped herself to the wine, gone back to the show, then thought "Actually, fuck this" and returned to my dressing room instead.’ 

Among those sharing his shock at the incident was fellow comic Sara Pascoe, who tweeted: 'Can your next book be about this wild and fascinating woman please?? I’m fascinated.'
