Skiing holidays in Mayrhofen with Inghams offer one of the best ski resorts in Europe and now that experience has just got better!
The Altitude Comedy Festival taking place in Mayrhofen 18-22 March 2013 sees the world’s biggest names in comedy performing over 6 nights in really intimate surroundings. Comedian Andrew Maxwell curates Altitude, opening up his little black book and inviting all his comedy friends to join him for days whizzing around the slopes and providing hours of laughter for the evening entertainment. Maxwell has this to say about Altitude: “Getting to snowboard all day and enjoy my comedian mates on stage and back-stage all night is like a week long, snowy, fantasy island for me”.
Altitude Festival is extremely proud to announce Eddie Izzard will be joining John Bishop as one of this year's headline acts! Described by John Cleese as 'the lost Python', he was listed at number 3 in the 100 Greatest British National Comedians for Channel 4's 100 Greatest Comedians of All Time countdown. Hailed as one of the foremost stand-ups of this generation, he's got almost too much talent for just one stage and stormed the acting world too, with major US roles such as General Erich Fellgiebel in Valkyrie with Tom Cruise, Roman Nagel in Oceans Twelve & Oceans Thirteen alongside George Clooney & Al Pacino and he's even been in The Simpsons! He's one of the funniest people on the planet and one of the nicest comedians to boot and he is sure to bring the house down in Mayrhofen!
