News: Al Murray, Pappy's & More Join Altitude Line-Up

Al Murray

Al Murray has been added to the line-up of this year's Altitude Festival, which takes place in Mayrhofen, Austria from March 31 - April 4. Also joining an impressive bill are Pappy's, Fred MacAuly and Rainer Hersch.

Already announced are John Bishop, Tommy Tiernan, Terry Alderton, Nina Conti, Marcus Brigstocke, Andrew Maxwell and many more. There is a notable surge in the number of women appearing this year too, with Luisa Omielan, Roisin Conaty and Zoe Lyons heading out to the Festival.

The mix of skiing, boarding and stand-up comedy has been getting bigger each year and this year's festival should benefit from a boost in interest in snow-based sport. As well as the Winter Olympics in Sochi, C4 has just screened The Jump. Altitude co-creator Marcus Brigstocke was one of the stars of the C4 series, despite having a nasty fall. Comedians can also currently be seen talking about sliding around on mountains on TV every week on Alan Davies' late night chat show, Apres Ski and on C4's The Last Leg.
