The Doctor Will See You Now – Our first ever COMEDY NIGHT with best selling author and comedian Adam Kay
At Letham Nights, you know us… We like to branch out, push boundaries, give you something you didn’t know you wanted. This time we are going for the jocular and we think you will be very amused.
Writer and comedian, Adam Kay, has just finished a second completely SOLD OUT run of his acclaimed comedy show at the Edinburgh Fringe. He also did a completely SOLD OUT run in the West End and has toured internationally. He is a previous winner of the London Cabaret Award and writes extensively for TV, film and radio. Credits include Mitchell & Webb, Very British Problems, Mrs Brown’s Boys, Crims (co-creator), Mongrels, Up The Women, Flat TV, Our Ex Wife, Child Genius. Adam is a regular voice on Radio 4’s “The Now Show”, and also appears on BBC 2’s The Culture Show. His first book “This is Going to Hurt” was published by Picador on September 7th 2017 and shot straight into the best-sellers list. The book has been showered with a deluge of positive reviews from all major news outlets from the Sunday Times to Buzzfeed as well as effervescent endorsements from Stephen Fry, Jonathan Ross, Mark Haddon and Shappi Khorsandi. The book – and his live act – is a painfully funny and very moving account of his 6 years as a doctor in the NHS. It will split your sides and break your heart.
So get booking folks! You will be rewarded with some of the best laughter medicine money can buy!
You can also see Adam at Toppings Book Shop in St Andrews on Sunday 8th
The reviews speak for themselves
Two funny… Sully O’Sullivan
And of course we won’t short change you! We have booked not one but TWO acts. Opening for Adam will be another comedy genius of the Fringe, Sully O’Sullivan. Sully was a highlight of the New Zealand International Comedy Festival by The NZ Herald, a highlight of the Glasgow International Comedy Festival by The Scotsman, featured on Australian TV’s The Comedy Channel, hosted a sellout standup tour of Croatia, won Canada’s annual Improvaganza Tournament, and completed 2 UK national tours.
Hall Joking Aside…
This will be a special memorial show to a great friend of ours, Iain Macaulay, with Adam taking no fee and the proceeds going to that amazing charity MacMillan. There will be opportunities on the night to contribute, and if you want, our quirky ticketing system will allow you to pay double, triple, whatever you like, over the minimum asking price…
Go on, have a laugh! You’re bound to end up #ROFLetham
