Friday 22nd September at 7pm, Shire Hall, Monmouth; Ticket £5
Comedian, writer and former Junior Doctor Adam Kay will share jokes and anecdotes from his first book, This is Going to Hurt.
Welcome to 97-hour weeks. Welcome to life and death decisions. Welcome to a constant tsunami of bodily fluids. Welcome to earning less than the hospital parking meter. Wave goodbye to your friends and relationships . . .
Welcome to the life of a junior doctor.
Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, comedian and former junior doctor 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 by turns, these diaries are everything you wanted to know- and more than a few things you didn’t – about life on and off the hospital ward. And yes, it may leave a scar.
‘Painfully funny. The pain and the funniness somehow add up to something entirely good, entirely noble and entirely loveable.’ – Stephen Fry
