Description

We spend trillions on health but like Brexit, nobody knows what it means. So who’s conning who? Is anyone sexually healthy? Is death healthy? And who’s most likely to kill you: doctors, druids or the DUP? An evidence-based comedy wellness detox. ‘One of the most entertainingly subversive people on the planet’ (Guardian). ‘Consistently funny’ ***** (Sunday Telegraph). ‘If Dr Phil were a medicine, you should swig him by the litre’ **** (Times). NHS doctor, Private Eye journalist, not quite struck off. As sacked by the BBC for daring to stand against Jacob Rees-Mogg.
