Adam Kay: This Is Going to Hurt…More
Wednesday 2 November 2022
Award-winning writer and comedian Adam Kay has today announced This Is Going to Hurt…More. Kay’s biggest UK tour to date will be coming to Newcastle O2 City Hall on Wednesday 2 November 2022
This is Going to Hurt…More sees Adam Kay share entries from his phenomenally popular diaries as a junior doctor in an evening of stand-up and music. This live comedy show will also feature brand-new stories from his forthcoming book Undoctored: The Story of a Medic Who Ran Out of Patients.
As an award-winning live performer, Adam has sold out multiple Edinburgh Fringe runs, West End seasons and UK and international tours. His live tour of This is Going to Hurt was one of the most-attended UK shows of recent years, seen by over 250,000 people and described by the Guardian as “electrifying” and “blissfully brilliant” by Mail on Sunday. Kay’s adaptation of This is Going to Hurt is now a BBC One television series.
On the brand-new tour, Adam said: 'It feels like the natural progression of my surreal 2022 to go from Ben Whishaw playing me on television to performing at Wembley. 2023’s really going to have up its game – perhaps I’ll be made king or move to Jupiter. I can’t wait to get This is Going to Hurt… More out on the road and subject the UK to more of my repulsive stories.'
Adam Kay is an award-winning writer and comedian. His debut book, This is Going to Hurt, is a literary sensation: a Sunday Times number one bestseller for over a year, it has sold over 2.5 million copies, making it the bestselling UK narrative non-fiction book of the 21st century.

This is Going to Hurt has won ten national awards including a record-breaking four National Book Awards. His bestselling follow-up, Twas The Nightshift Before Christmas was a number one bestseller, and sold over 500,000 copies. His anthology Dear NHS raised over £400,000 for charity and featured contributions from Emilia Clarke, Ed Sheeran, Emma Thompson, Emma Watson and Paul McCartney.
