Interview: Rarely Asked Questions: Andrew Maxwell

If you look up Comedian's Comedian in a decent dictionary you will probably see a picture of Andrew Maxwell (the one here is by Richard Hardcastle). The Irish stand-up is one of our finest performers. Quite why he is not a much bigger star is one of life's great mysteries.

Picture Story: Altitude Festival 2013

The Altitude Comedy Festival returned to Mayrhofen in Austria last week, offering the perfect holiday for anyone who likes a combination of winter sports and gags. As ever the five-day laugh binge was a terrific opportunity to see Arena stars playing small theatres and clubs. John Bishop and Eddie Izzard both headlined Gala gigs in the relatively intimate - for them – 550-seater Europahaus, but also took the opportunity to get back to their club roots and do some smaller, intimate shows in the bars around town.
