last week was a very special week, when the british altitude comedy festival took place in the ski resort of mayrhofen (ziller valley). this meant that we didn’t have to go very far to see some world-class comedians perform live on stage. :)
highlights included stand-up comedians phill jupitus, marcus brigstocke, rufus hound, terry alderton, milton jones, andrew maxwell, ian stone, abandoman and pete johansson – but the reason we went there in the first place was australian comedy-musician tim minchin.
the acts were incredibly funny – there’s just nothing like dry (and sometimes pretty dark) british humour!
side note: people you meet at comedy festivals are likely to have a good sense of humour themselves!
some pictures to enjoy:
