Curated by Irish comedian, Andrew Maxwell, the Altitude Comedy Festival 2012 line up will include Frankie Boyle, Al Murray and Ed Byrne.
Located in the alpes of Mayrhofen, Austria with the entire Zillertal super ski area holding 639km of piste and 167 lifts and gondolas in access, the festival will showcase some of the biggest names in comedy for the fifth year running.
Jimmy Carr, Frankie Boyle, Al Murray, Ed Byrne and the festival curator Andrew Maxwell will play festival stand up shows in the evening, after ticket-holders have enjoyed a day up the slopes.
Taking place from 26-31 March 2012, the six day event combines laughter, winter sports and music from festival favourites such as The Cuban Brothers.
Andrew Maxwell in conversation with Virtual Festivals this week said; “Theres a certain amount of music and DJ’s and that sort of thing, but to be honest, I don’t think we really need to offer anything else, Mother Nature’s done that! You wake up everyday, you look out on your balcony, and theres the mountains. You get up, no matter how rough you feel from the night before, and that mountain air just takes you away.”
Kevin Bridges, Tim Minchin, Milton Jones, Craig Campbell and more join the bill. Click here for the full Altitude Comedy Festival line up.
