Description

Adam Kay is going on tour with his festive show, T'was the Nightshift Before Christmas, stopping off at Waterfront Hall on 09 December 2021.

Becoming a household name following the release of his first book, Adam Kay is the junior doctor that has had us simultaneously laughing at this anecdotes whilst being in awe of the NHS.

Adam's first book, This is Going to Hurt, revisiting his former career as a junior doctor, spent over a year at number one in the Sunday Times bestseller list. It was the bestselling non-fiction title of the decade, it is the bestselling non-fiction e-book of all time, and has sold over 2.5 million copies. This is Going to Hurt has been translated into 37 languages and achieved number one bestseller status internationally.

Adam's second book Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas was published by Picador in October 2019, taking a peek behind the blue curtain at Christmastime.

Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas was an instant Sunday Times number one bestseller, selling over 500,000 copies in under three months and making Adam the first author to have simultaneous number ones for hardback and paperback non-fiction titles.

Adam didn't stop there, showing his respect for the hard work of the NHS with his release of Dear NHS: 100 Stories to Say Thank You, edited by Adam, was published by Trapeze in July 2020. A book collecting together stories from famous contributors, with all profits donated to NHS Charities Together and The Lullaby Trust and was an instant Sunday Times number one bestseller. It has raised over £375,000 for charity.

And if your have little ones in your home, he released his first children's book, Kay's Anatomy in October 2020. Yet another Sunday Times number one bestseller, it became the fastest-selling childrens' non-fiction book of the decade. To be closely followed by the imminent release of his second children's book, Kay's Marvellous Medicine to be published by Puffin in September 2021.
