ALTITUDE COMEDY FESTIVAL

As long as you have a sense of humour and appreciate a joker or two, you’ll love this annual high altitude humourfest in Mayrhofen, which is essentially a load of adults rolling around in the Austrian snow. During Altitude, the hills are alive with the sound of laughter, and the world’s biggest comics perform six days of live shows. The first daily show – known as the Après Ski set – starts at 5pm (just after the ski lifts close) and is a raucous affair that takes place in the centrally located Hotel Strass. Attracting some of the best in the business, The Gala Show is the main nightly event, where four comedians perform in the 750-seater Europahaus theatre. For those with serious comedy (and drinking) stamina, there’s a nightly Late Show kicking-off at 11.30pm, where the jokes (and heckling) get dirtier in the wee hours. For one night only during the hysterical proceedings, Altitude’s dazzling festival of lights #LightUpMayrhofen is not to be missed.
