Dr Kevin Jones: Telling the Wrong Man He Had Cancer and Other Hilarious Stories

Fri 15th March 2019
Saddleworth Live At The Millgate, Saddleworth, OL3 5DY

Dr Kevin Jones is a practising consultant physician who has been on the comedy and after-dinner circuit for 30 years.  His one-man show, a huge, sell-out hit at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, celebrates the dark humour inherent in hospital medicine - frightening, illuminating and very, very funny.

It is poignant, insightful, bizarre and gut-wrenchingly funny.

Trust him, he’s a doctor, but you may die laughing!

There will be no dead bodies, or dissections, or actual surgical procedures but he’ll have you in stiches and any side-splitting will be of your own accord.

Thanks to Dr Jones’s kind generosity and support for the Millgate, ALL money raised at the box office will go directly to the Millgate Arts Centre’s refurbishment appeal.

“A self-assured, consummate story teller, taking you on a humorous and ultimately life affirming trip through his career.” Paul Maguire, Edinburgh Comedy Awards

“The funniest doctor I’ve ever met.” Justin Moorhouse


Kevin Jones qualified in Medicine from Liverpool University. He spent four years on the Heart-Lung Transplant team at Papworth Hospital, Cambridge, six years at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London and is now a NHS Consultant Physician in Northern England. He has been on the after-dinner speaking circuit for 30 years and is probably the funniest doctor to tell stories about cancer there has ever been! He has been seen with celebrities like Stephen Fry, John Bishop and Michael McIntyre and forced them to talk to him. His selfie-collection is extensive as he stalks comedy celebrities all over the country in the hope that some of their greatness will rub off on him.
