Just what the doctor ordered: extra Adam Kay show in Stratford

We announce further acts for our autumn Live at the RSC: Comedy Festival and an additional This is Going to Hurt show from Adam Kay.

Award-winning comedian Adam Kay will now share entries from his diaries as a junior doctor across two shows of stand-up and music on Saturday 21 September.

Further acts have also been announced for the festival, in association with Underbelly, including improvised ventriloquism from Nina Conti, political satirist Matt Forde, multi-award winning British musical comedy duo Flo and Joan and award-winning stand-up and radio host Alun Cochrane, who will join the variety shows across the two-week festival.

Adam Kay said: “One thing I’ve always said about the RSC - they need to have more doctors telling horrific medical anecdotes. How nice to be finally proved right. I’m absolutely delighted to be bringing This is Going to Hurt to Stratford-upon-Avon for two shows.”
