We came to the last day of Altitude 2013 with the Impro Allstars performing to yet another packed crowd and getting the evening off to a great start. The action then moved over the Europahaus and to the final Gala night, and what a night it was.
Andrew Maxwell was our charming host for the closing night and was able to unite the room in a rousing rendition of his take on the Austrian national anthem. Phill Jupitus was the first act and he served up some deeply satisfying poetry describing Jeremy Clarkson as a Mechanophile and his tour support with Madness. Marcus Brigstocke then took to the stage and once again proved to be one of the most rounded and accomplished comics working today with a slick set that referenced the week’s activities, world politics and more. Daniel Sloss proved that funny is ageless as he delivered another incredible set, having been consistently hilarious all week.
Full praise has to go to the man who played almost every Altitude 2013 show in one guise or another, always giving his all and getting deservedly incredible reactions, Terry Alderton. He came on to headline for a second time in one week and rarely does an entire room get to experience something quite as special this twice! It was a euphoric and completely unique event that crowned Terry the King of Altitude by both artists and audience alike.
We hope you will agree that Altitude 2013 has, over the course of one week, displayed some of the world’s best comedy shows and we hope that you had as much fun as we did. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to everyone who came and made it undoubtedly our best Altitude yet, we hope to welcome you back next year. Don’t forget to keep an eye on the website, and our Facebook and Twitter for all Altitude news.
