Perthshire When Hell Freezes Over

When Hell Freezes Over - Andy Kirkpatrick. 30 October 2008. Birnam Institute, Birnam, Perthshire, Scotland. 8pm. British mountaineer Andy Kirkpatrick has a reputation for climbing in extreme conditions. He also has a reputation as the most extreme speaker on the mountaineering circuit, with stand-up talents to rival the top comedy acts in the UK. When Hell Freezes Over focuses on his winter expeditions to Patagonia, a treacherous mountain range at the southern most portion of South America. Andy’s show gives a taste of what it’s like to go on a major expedition, with tales of being trapped on mile high summits in hurricane winds, buried by avalanches, and pushed close to hypothermia whilst lashed to the side of a mountain. A 100 mile-an-hour ride through Andy’s white-knuckle experiences of the last decade. “makes Ray Mears look like Paris Hilton” The Metro “a killer stand-up routine…an intoxicating mix of side-splitting humour and bum-clenching fear” The Ritzy Cinema, Brixton. “Andy is one of the funniest of Britain’s top climbers and represents what is best in modern British climbing: boldness, innovation, sense of humour, irreverence, commitment, and an appetite for risk.” Sir Chris Bonington.
