Adam Kay is a former doctor, a BAFTA winning comedian and one of the country’s best-selling authors.
In between his sold-out comedy tours, playing to over 100,000 people a year, Adam is in huge demand for corporate events, bringing his experiences to life as a speaker, giving a hilarious, inspiring and fascinating performance.
He has a wealth of experience at private events. He is absolutely passionate and hugely knowledgeable about his subject, and everything is delivered with his trademark humour.
He has entertained and spoken at every imaginable type of event – from intimate royal birthday parties at Buckingham Palace to huge conferences at ExCel London, from Manchester to Malta to Melbourne. Adam is hugely skilled at tailoring his performance to the style and theme of an event and getting it absolutely pitch-perfect every time.
Adam’s no-holds-barred diaries from his time as a junior doctor were the basis of his hit book This is Going to Hurt. This hilarious, horrifying and heart-breaking book has sold over two million copies in the UK, been translated into 38 languages, spending a record-breaking 13 months at number in the Sunday Times bestseller list, and winning numerous accolades including Book of the Year at the National Book Awards. His second book, Twas the Nightshift before Christmas was another huge success, and Adam became the first author to have simultaneous Sunday Times number ones in paperback and hardback. This is Going to Hurt is currently being adapted by Adam as a major new comedy-drama for the BBC.
Adam is a frequent face on television and, as with his live events, he is equally at home being sensible (Newsnight, Peston) or less so (8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, The Russell Howard Hour).
