The Altitude Comedy Festival will be back for its tenth annual staging this ski season, but is moving forward in the calendar a couple of months for a mid- January staging. Along with most music festivals, Altitude, which started off in Meribel but moved to Mayrhofen, normally had a start-of-spring March time slot.
Tickets are now on sale for Altitude 2016 which promises "five hilarious nights" from 11th – 15th January 2016.
Over the past 10 years, Altitude has brought the world's top comedians, including Eddie Izzard, Jimmy Carr, John Bishop, Tim Minchin, Bill Bailey, Micky Flanagan, Jo Brand, Kevin Bridges, Nina Conti Frankie Boyle, Sean Lock and avalanches more, to some of Europe's most charming and intimate venues.
The 2016 line up has not yet been announced but the organisers say that… "To celebrate a decade of lederhosen-clad laughter, Altitude HQ are busy sculpting a line-up bursting with top drawer favourites, along with the most side-splitting new acts around. All will be revealed soon."
