About this event

One day Dr Ahmed is minding his own business, living his singing-dancing-comedy doctor best life, and the next, in a sick twist of fate worthy of Greek mythology, the tables suddenly turn, and it is HIM wearing the hospital gown.

From a kidney stone that won’t pass, to central crushing chest pain in hotel quarantine (hasn’t everyone had that?), join him on this epic (but relatable) journey of health adventures where he triumphs like an unnecessarily broad-spectrum antibiotic prescribed for a viral head cold.  You must decide- do doctors really make the worst patients? Dr Ahmed has SOLD OUT every season at FRINGE WORLD so BOOK NOW!
