What do you get if you cross a ski resort and a comedian?

Ski, laugh, and dance in stunning Mayrhofen - Now with Eddie Izzard

If your annual alpine escape was scheduled for late March this year, you could find yourself at world’s greatest alpine comedy festival in Mayrhofen, Austria.

The Altitude Comedy Festival will see some of the biggest names in comedy raised even higher, as they travel up to the Alps to entertain snow sports enthusiasts well into the night.

Jimmy Carr, Frankie Boyle, Tim Minchin and Terry Alderton are just a few  of the hysterical comedians the festival has lined up, with world renowned beatboxer Michael Winslow adding variety to the mix.

The comedy festival provides a unique opportunity to see these headlining comedians up close, with acts that sell out in the 02 arena ascending mountains to perform in a 100 capacity bar.

To be fair, the surroundings will be slightly more beautiful than any décor the O2 could muster, with the  alpine peaks, pine forests and plateaus characteristic of the Tyrol region in Austria.

Mayrhofen boasts several other attractions alongside its natural beauty and unique comedy festival, including Austria’s steepest piste and most chilled out nightclub – made entirely from snow.

The line up is now out and I want to go!
