FESTIVAL: Altitude in the Alps

This December the hills are alive with the sound of BONKERS! Looking for a comedy festival with a view? Then here’s ALTITUDE ….


No-one could be more thrilled about Altitude’s second 2016 edition next month than co-founder (and Dubliner) Andrew Maxwell. Ireland’s most knowledgeable comedian will return with his intrepid social comedy and his world-famous lederhosen.

Following a little hiatus from the slopes, Terry Alderton is also back!  Having traveled the world, winning numerous awards including the Best International Act at the New Zealand Comedy Festival, Terry will back to headline the Gala Show on the Tuesday luring us into his psychedelic world to teach us about his ‘voices’.


Marcus Brigstocke has been so snowed under with rave reviews for his Edinburgh Fringe shows that organisers were worried he might have gotten too big for his ski-boots. Luckily he hasn’t, so snow fans have another chance to witness his achingly funny satirical wit and enviable snowboarding skills this December.

Mock the Week regular Zoe Lyons will also be back in the Hoff keeping the good times snowballing, alongside Scotland’s comedy prodigy Daniel Sloss. Include the manically funny Barry  Castagnola, storytelling jokesmith Craig Campbell and Canadian multi-award winner Glenn Wool. Favourite Musical man Andy Askins is back, as is the marvellous Kai Humphries, bringing his supreme wit and infectious optimism. The incredible Abandoman will have you astounded by his lyrical genius and Altitude veterans The International Improv All-stars are also up for some festive fun. Many more acts are still to be announced.

You will also be  joined by ‘The Best Act to Ever Close Shangri-Hell at Glastonbury’ – OH MY GOD, IT’S THE CHURCH! It’s time all you sinners joined them for a service where party is praising, you’ll be baptised in absinthe and made to dance with the devil himself. Hell, even Jesus gets down at this show! OH MY GOD, IT’S THE CHURCH!’ is a raucous, interactive party experience and parody of a Deep South Pentecostal church brimming with the best soul, dancing and disco tunes.

The Original Silent Disco are coming all the way from Holland, and hosting two electrifying events at Altitude Christmas. The first is a Silent Disco ON ICE! The second event will break the world-record as The Highest Silent Disco ever and will take place on top of the Hintertux Glacier at 3250m!

There is even more to be announced including a comedy giant!
