Audible have announced they will release What Seems To Be The Problem With Adam Kay And Mark Watson, a special looking at medical issues.

The one-off audio show will be released exclusively on Audible on 13th August.

What Seems To Be The Problem With Adam Kay And Mark Watson will look at "all the intriguing ways your body can go wrong - and the incidents that happen when the medical world tries to help."

The company says: "This Audible Original, from the best-selling author of medical memoir This Is Going To Hurt, will feature Adam Kay, in conversation with Mark Watson. Adam and Mark will be sharing medical anecdotes, both contemporary and ancient; examining the bizarre dysfunction of the body, and the very human ways we try to deal with it."

Sean McManus from Audible says: "Adam Kay's debut book This Is Going To Hurt was a smash hit, and we are excited that he is writing and recording this new project exclusively for us. His mixture of humour, medical insight and storytelling, combined with his immaculate comic timing is sure to make this a massive hit. He will be recording What Seems To Be The Problem in conversation with Mark Watson and we know this format will make a really original and unique Audible Original."

To mark the launch of this title, Audible will be donating £20,000 to The Lullaby Trust, an organisation that Adam is ambassador for. It raises awareness of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), provides expert advice on safer sleep for babies and offers emotional support for bereaved families.

Jenny Ward, Chief Executive at Lullaby, comments: "A huge thank you to Audible for their generous donation, and to Adam and Mark for championing our cause. Their support will help us towards our goal of halving rates of sudden infant death syndrome by 2020 and continue supporting families who have lost a baby or young child."

Mark Watson has previously worked with Audible on a 26 hour gig project.

Adam Kay is currently working on adapting his book into a BBC Two comedy series with the same title. He also recently revealed a Christmas live tour to tie in with his next book, Twas The Nightshift Before Christmas. Meanwhile extra dates have just been announced for his July run at London's Vaudeville Theatre.

What Seems To Be The Problem With Adam Kay And Mark Watson will be released on 13th August.
