Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat… but 1.4 million NHS staff are heading off to work. Following the million-selling success of This Is Going To Hurt, Adam Kay delves back into his diaries for a hilarious peek behind the blue curtain at Christmastime.

Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas is a love letter to all those who spend their festive season on the front line, removing babies and baubles from the various places they get stuck, at the most wonderful time of the year. This heartwarming and hilarious live show mixes highlights from the book with Kay’s award-winning stand-up comedy and exclusive new content.
