FOR ‘89 MINUTES TO SAVE THE NHS’

‘As brilliant a polemic as I have ever seen’ The Guardian

‘A tremendous show. Sceptical, irreverent, very funny and like a mighty gust of fresh air in a field that’s bedevilled with cover-ups and cloaked in a vow of silence’ Time Out

‘The greatest genuine scandal of the fringe. Generates dozens of laughs and more ire than any amount of tentative taboo-breaching uncovered elsewhere’ The Financial Times

‘Assured, witty and profane, Hammond advises against the traditional blind trust in NHS staff, gleefully turning over every sacred cow from practitioners to politicians and sharing some delightful clap clinic anecdotes. Essential viewing’ The List

‘Thought provoking, scalpel sharp stand-up’ The Independent

‘Funny and provocative… a morbid wit with a schoolboy grin’ Evening Standard

‘Sharp intelligent commentary woven through ruthlessly funny anecdotes’ The Big Issue

‘Tough on doctors, politicians and patients. And he’s funny.’ Daily Telegraph

‘Hammond rips it out of politicians, NHS managers, medical students and, most profitably, himself. Excellent. *****’ Edinburgh Fest Magazine

‘I cannot stress enough how important it is that you see this show. It has it all… *****’ Three Weeks

‘In the long and brilliant tradition of comedy doctors’ Sunday Times

 

GENERAL

‘Funny, sensible and rude, like eating a penis-shaped vegetable’ David Mitchell

‘A comedian trapped in a doctor’s body.’ The General Medical Council

‘One of the most entertainingly subversive people on the planet.’ The Guardian
