Dig out your Lederhosen and stock up on the strudels because Altitude Comedy Festival is back! Returning to Mayrhofen, Austria once again from March 31st to April 4th 2014 there will be a gilt-edged line-up of the comedy world’s top acts and most exciting new stand-ups, all up-close and personal in venues you couldn’t possibly hope to see them at in the UK!
Commenting on this year’s Altitude Comedy Festival, curator Andrew Maxwell said: “I can’t believe it’s come around so quickly again. I’m so excited I want to be there now! We’ve pulled out all the stops to try and compete with last year’s fantastic line-up and we believe we’ve topped it and then some. Can’t wait to see you there!”
Altitude gives you the opportunity to experience arena-filling comedy giants in the fantastically intimate surrounds of its beautiful venues in Mayrhofen, one of Europe’s most picturesque ski resorts. With an array of restaurants, luxurious hotels and enticing spas that are second to none, the picture postcard resort offers easy access to the entire Zillertal super-ski area, with 639km of piste and 167 lifts and gondolas, making it the ideal location to fuse a schnapps and schnitzel-fuelled ski holiday with one of the world’s top international comedy festivals!
It’s slopes all day and laughs all night with the biggest and best comedians around at Altitude and that’s what makes it so very special. With some amazing performers due to be announced very soon, we kick off this year’s line-up with four words, THE BISH IS BACK! Yes folks, John Bishop had such an amazing time last year he asked if he could come back! As anyone who was there will know, John was a total legend at Altitude and we loved having him with us, so we couldn’t possibly say no!
There are still lots more names to announce including a very special headliner, some comedy giants and the best up-and-coming comedians currently on the circuit, so keep checking Altitude’s new facebook page for more information.
