Welcome to the life of a hospital doctor in the UK: 97-hour weeks, life and death decisions, a constant tsunami of bodily fluids, and the hospital parking meter earns more than you. This is Going to Hurt is the “painfully funny” (Stephen Fry) show by comedian and former doctor Adam Kay.  

This extraordinary peek behind the blue curtain has been described as “hilarious and heartbreaking” by Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker.  

This is the Australian premiere of a show that has been seen by over 150,000 people in the UK. The accompanying book has sold two million copies, winning a record four National Book Awards, and holding the Sunday Times number one bestseller spot for over a year.
