Alastair is that weird breed of professional climber-photographer and has now climbed in six of the world’s continents. No stranger to the lecture circuit Alastair has been performing professionally at Mountaineering Clubs, Film Festivals, Travel Shows, Schools and Women’s Luncheon Clubs (!) for nerly 10 years with some 250+ shows under his belt.
Each Alastair Lee performance is a multi-media extravaganza packed with entertaining features including one huge 16:9 screen, spine-chilling photography, special effects, video shorts and a drum kit! State of the art sound and digital projection are all used to full effect.
Storms Of Laughter
Rising star of the climbing lecture circuit satirical stand up Alastair presents a one-hour comic skit spectacular. Mallory summit shots, cutting edge issues (gays in the outdoors), competition climbing and the mountain press are all lambasted without remorse. Clips from the award winning film (People's Choice - Kendal Mountain Film Festival) 'Twice Upon a Time in Bolivia' and lashings of jaw dropping photography are all inclusive in this entertaining, or if it goes really well, hilarious performance. NB There is some adult content in the show, so please leave your parents at home. You have been warned!
Climber or Lunatic?
Alastair recounts the arrogance of youth as a 23 year old he took New Zealand’s north and south islands by storm, falling off most routes, other days not daring to leave the hut, his only successes were winning the ‘boulder-run’ and this hilarious one man show.
Adventures, and misadventures, across 10,000 miles of Canadian soil, rock, ice, snow and highway, from the flat prairies to the spectacular peaks of the Bugaboos. First seen at the Kendal Film Festival ’99, then toured Ireland in 2000 as well as gracing the MC of Scotland’s AGM, the show continues to entertain after 6 years on the road.
Made in China
Visiting the Himalayan foothills for an attempt on a first ascent of a 5500m peak in the remote Shangri La region. With beds on buses and one gloved taxi drivers getting there is half the adventure! This is another thoroughly entertaining and visually spectacular show, which inspires all to visit this little known yet enormous country.
