Filmed live at Stornoway in December 2008, When Hell Freezes Over packs in a full-on 100 minutes of the very best of Andy Kirkpatrick's tales and humour. It is quite simply hilarious.



Description

Climbing's answer to Swimming to Cambodia



Andy Kirkpatrick is one of the mountain world’s big hitters: two-time winner of the Boardman Tasker Prize for his books Psychovertical and Cold Wars, prolific writer, gear guru, filmmaker and, of course, a rather adventurous climber.

But it is through his stand up shows that Andy is probably best known to the public.



Using video, music and a unique sense of humour, Andy details one of the most treacherous mountain ranges in the world, giving the audience a taste of what it is like on expedition; from being trapped on mile-high summits in hurricane winds, buried by avalanche, or pushed close to hypothermia whilst lashed to the side of a mountain.



Filmed live at Stornoway in December 2008, this film packs a full-on 100 minutes of the very best of Andy tales and humour. It is quite simply hilarious.



'I’ve long been a fan of the film Swimming to Cambodia where Spalding Gray does his one man show – just him, a stage and some images. Maybe I’m up my own arse, but I thought I’d get Hot Aches to film one of the final shows I did on my tour.

 I’m told this film is very funny, but I’ve never watched it, and probably never will, as I’m too scared that I’ll watch it and think “What a knob head!”.'
