«The International Comedy Club» sorgt seit Jahren dafür, dass die Schweiz jede zweite Woche zwei exzellente Acts der englischsprachigen Comedyszene live erleben kann und – wieder einmal etwas zu Lachen hat. Im kürzesten Monat des Jahres kredenzt uns Guy Stevens ein Standup-Highlight und hochkarätiges Get-together der Comedyszene: Die «Snowed In Comedy-Tour» feiert ihren 5. Geburtstag und schickt zu diesem Anlass vier international bekannte Comedians für einmal nicht nur in die kanadischen Berge zum snowboarden und Shows spielen – sondern eben auch zu uns, in die Schweiz.
Ob der Schnee ausreichen wird, bleibt zu sehen. Dass ED BYRNE (IRE), CRAIG CAMPBELL (CAN), DAN QUINN (CAN), TERRY ALDERTON (ENG) jedes kalte Zwerchfell zum Kochen bringen werden ist hingegen sicher. Die vier Comedians gehören zur A-List der Szene und einen Abend wie diesen wird es wohl so schnell nicht noch einmal geben!

Ed Byrne (IRE)
As an observational stand up Ed Byrne is unrivalled. He has played in major comedy venues across the UK and Ireland, including the Vaudeville, Riverside, and New Ambassadors theatres in London, and the Gaiety, Olympia, Ambassador, and Vicar St. theatres in Dublin. His UK tours are always hugely popular and well received by the critics. Ed often appears as a guest on television panel shows including the BBC’s Mock the Week and Have I Got News For You, and he has been a presenter on such shows as RTEs Ed Byrne’s Just for Laughs, which ran for four series. He has also made memorable appearances on shows such as the BBC’s Graham Norton’s Bigger Picture and Never mind the Buzzcocks. Ed is also developing a radio show for the BBC.

Craig Campbell (CAN)

Terry Alderton (ENG)
Peeking inside the Technicolor mind of one of Britain’s finest comic talents and you will find him desperately doing battle with “The Voices”, two unpredictable and hilarious Voices in Terry’s Head. Though often a challenge to Terry these two different sides of his ego/conscience often lead him into unpredictable comedy routines. No two shows are ever the same! Terry is one of the most exciting comedians around regularly performing all over the globe. In the last year alone he has played the Melbourne Australia Comedy Festival, New Zealand Comedy Festival, India and Edinburgh Comedy Festival. Terry has been Perrier nominated in Edinburgh and recently won the 3 Weeks Critics award as well as Best International Act at the New Zealand Comedy Festival. This frequent traveling has meant performing alongside some of comedy`s biggest stars. Michael McIntyre has found Terry as a source of inspiration. He has recently worked with Joan Rivers who became an instant fan and Eddie Izzard who proclaimed him to be a ‘very funny comic with a fantastic comedy mind’, but someone who really ought to seek some sort of professional help. Terry starred in The BBC’s Michael McIntyre Comedy Road Show, SKY One’s The Match 2004, a regular fire fighter in ITV1`s London Burning in 2002, and also hosted in his own radio show, ‘Terry`s Turnstiles’ on London`s Capital Radio FM. Terry also hosted the BBC’s National Lottery, ‘Red Alert’, with Lulu for the BBC Joy of Text(BBC1) Winning World Cup Tickets(ITV1) It Shouldn`t Be On TV (Sky1) Bleeding Thumbs(BBC2) Game Stars(ITV1).
