Christmas with Adam Kay

A one-man tour de force, Adam Kay (Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor) is back with his new Christmas show, bringing you a peek behind the scenes of A&E at the most wonderful time of the year. While you're basting the turkey and finishing off the last of your Advent calendar, 1.4 million NHS workers head to the front line to keep the country going, removing all sort of baubles and bells and babies from the places they shouldn't be. Known for his frank, hilarious candor, discover just what our National Health Service faces over the festive season.

After handing in his stethoscope in exchange for the stage, Kay began his second career as a comedian as a member of Amateur Transplants. He has enjoyed massive online success within the niche of musical parodies, and fans have followed him to seats at the theatre with his numerous sell-out shows as testament.

SECRET DIARIES OF A JUNIOR DOCTOR

What was born out of necessity - the requirement to submit evidence of what you've done in order to pass the next stage of medicine - comes the diary entries of a man who was then just a frustrated writer parading as a junior doctor. Kay has turned his experiences of life on and off the hospital ward into an evening of stand-up and music, recounting his former life in all its weird, wonderful, and shocking detail. The piece was such a hit Kay had a book based on his anecdotes published that became a Sunday Times best-seller, and television rights have also recently been secured to bring the premise to the small screen.
