Beautifully crafted, exceptional, mostly-scripted comedy from the excellent Bob Mortimer & Andrew Dawson, who have wonderful podcast chemistry and have put together a ripping show. My personal favourite are the Peter Beardsley bits. It must be a lot of work to put it all together, unlike the boys I have no creative talent so can’t imagine. To Bob & Andy I say a heartfelt “thanks” and “please keep it up!’ To my fellow listeners I recommend this highly and add - Don’t wait as long as I did to leave a 5-star review & subscribe to the show! The bonus content is more than worth it :-)
Bob Mortimer and Andy Dawson's podcast - brass hands, blue drink and more. It's not really about football, d'you know what I mean?

If I had known that real life footballers have pet snakes and provide their wives with boiled eggs and then pop down to the meat salon for Armadillo nostril fritters then I would have been a big fan years ago. Sort it out FIFA.

Very tasty, visible from a considerable distance and almost totally hypoallergenic. The two presenters sound quite clean and punctual. Some of the stories don’t sound like they are true, however.
Carole Beardsley is comedy gold, and the South Africa stories had me in stitches, it’s all good. 👍👍
Just the best! I’ve grown up with Bob and that Andy bloke is ok even if he does come from Slumderland
Funniest podcast I’ve listened to!!
Some of the sketch’s make me laugh so much. The Peter Beardsley jokes are my fave 😂
The funniest podcast there is.
I’ve loved Bob Mortimer since Vic Reeves Big Night Out but I’ve only recently discovered this podcast. I can honestly say that it’s Bob Mortimer at his hilarious best! Andy Parsons is the perfect foil for him to bounce off and it’s left me absolutely crying with laughter! Brilliant stuff!
I’m in no way a prude, a well placed and presented four letter word can be comic genius but Im not used to this fowl language from Bob. It detracts slightly but I like it, though at a reduced volume so as not to offend other family members.
Been listening to the podcasts on and off for a few years now. I’ll go for a few months without listening and then catch up. Absolutely genius, great banter, characters and stories. Always makes me laugh 🤣🤣
Work out which is which..
Many great characters in these podcasts - Steve McClaren & Casper, Peter Beardsley & wife, members of the Spurs football team but, my absolute favourite, Mick McCarthy. Has me in stitches every time. Brilliant! This podcast is absolutely nuts!! So wonderfully funny. Can’t get enough of this podcast. Don’t miss it!!
Bob is a genius but Andy brings a massive amount to this too. The banter and chemistry they have is excellent.
Always been a massive fan of Robert. Seen a lot of people say he should drop Andy or work with another comedian. It’s such an amazing podcast that clearly Andy is doing something right! Who doesn’t love the waiter at Slaughter’s or hearing him try not to piss his pants laughing?!
Have got so many people into this but always recommend starting at the beginning and investing in at least 10. Not one disappointed customer yet!
Genius. Utter genius. National treasure Bob Mortimers left of centre outlook on life makes for a 30 minute dog walk listen that more often than not leaves me wheezing for breath at the end of it, and has helped me firmly cement my place in the village as the madman who guffaws out loud whilst walking his dog in the morning. Dog dirt.
First class exposition, idioms of madness. Admirable & hilarious...
At its best it’s unbelievably good, and another part of Bob cementing himself as one of the funniest people we have. Andy clings on for dear life at times, as anyone would have to, but if all he ever did in life was the first instalment of Roy Hodgson’s “Warrramma” he could retire proud
Bob is pure genius. Don’t like Andy’s stuff much though.
Bob is clearly a genius but I reckon Andy holds his own. To begin with I thought the layered stories that build over countless episodes meant I wouldn’t be able to dip in and out of the awesome back catalogue but, like Neighbours or a test match, it turns out you can. You don’t need to know much about footy but you do need to enjoy ludicrous, surreal comedy and cheap meat.
Bob, fantastic as always, so so funny. The other bloke not so much. Bob could make anything funny, so I’d love to see him drop the dead wood and work with someone funny. But whether he does or not Bob will always carry the show
Listen to this daily wearing me puffa puffa jacket whilst making poachies
My mates told me to listen to this, took my a while to get used to, but I love it now, I’m only 36 episodes in but already know the rest are going to be brilliant! Love the stuff about Brass Hands and Andys encounters with Jeremy Corbyn....Seen You!
Was introduced to this by a friend who said, “ just listen......I can’t explain what it is”. It’s worth the looks I get at work when there’s silence in the office and I start crying with laughter.
It’s a great injection of humour, that I’ve desperately needed over the last year.
Athletico Mince is the gift that keeps on giving. Enter the extraordinary mind of Bob Mortimer for surrealist and extremely funny takes on football and pop culture. A national treasure and personal comedy hero of mine, a podcast not to be missed!
When listening to AM I can’t speak... actually I can’t do anything as the tears of joy and laughter slip down my cheeks.
There are tv shows all over this... gangs of the EPL, crime files, Beardsley, slaughters and so much more.
Please do a gangs ccompilation.
I love this podcast. It’s brilliant and I listen all the time. Big fan of Bob and Andy’s contributions are just as funny
Recently, the adverts have become intrusive. Multiple long adverts at beginning, middle, and end.
Makes enjoying the podcast much harder. I listen a lot less since more adverts have crept in.
Can’t play em fast enough, well I can’t with me Brass hand!
Off the cuff madness from the comedy genius and his mate Andy Dawson who is dead good too.A loose affiliation to Footy, the Sean Dyche rap is just pure magic !
Bob Mortimer is a comedy genius and this podcast provides him with a platform to perform his art. What more could you want?
I’m trying to relax and sleep but can’t stop laughing!!!!!
Funniest podcast in podcast history, but Corbyn collection? Clutching at straws there Andy. Make some new content. One podcast in the last few months. Dog dirt.
I hope you lads are safe n well.
Is the mincer broken?
Bob is possibly the funniest man in the world. His imagination seems limitless.
Andy is aware of his limitations but is a good wingman who lets Bob shine.
Dawson lets it down with painfully unfunny characters like Corbyn. Leave the comedy to Bob
Cannot fail to have me crying with laughter on my way in to work! Scottish stories- his personal pipe lolloping from side to side, like a slug on a rollercoaster...🤣🤣
When Peter Beardsley started native Indian chanting ive never laughed so hard
It takes some doing boys to keep improving but 107 is the best ever episode. Neil Hunt and Bamford and Bielsa. Amazing stuff. Quality throughout.
I love this podcast, but the Peter Beardsley Vol 1/2 are next level. Cheers guys for making me laugh out loud more than I have for years!
Not sure why I’m only just writing my review, but after being made aware of the mince podcast by some work colleagues around a year ago, I can safely say that it has changed my life, for the better!
It’s probably the best thing I’ve ever listened to and my love affair with Bob Mortimer, just grew ever stronger!! I mean Andy is brilliant aswell though, don’t get me wrong and they work so well together!
Long live Athletico Mince!! 🙌🏻
I have listened from episode 8 to the most recent approximately 6 times. Love it. Just like mates having the funnest chat time. So many favourite characters. Bob is comedy genius! Andy a great support act. 👍🏽
I do declare; that Mr Dawson should probably do the honourable thing & let Bob fly his wings!
Bob Mortimer is the funniest man in the UK and Mr Dawson is the perfect foil. This isn’t a football podcast - if you like comedy you’ll like this. If you don’t like this then unfortunately you don’t like comedy.
Bob Mortimer is one of the funniest men on the planet. Listen and laugh along at his takes on Steve McLaren, Peter Beardsley and the gangs of the EPL. Fantastic.
This is pure liquid comedy gold. My heart skips a beat when a new pod comes up!
This is a wonderful podcast. I love how it has been listed by Apple with Peter Beardsley as a guest on the podcast, shame Barry Homeowner, the lads from the White Heart gang nor the Alderman got a listing too!
Anyone else having real trouble intercepting the latest Athletico Mince WAV’s lately?
I mean the fact Peter Beardsley is listed as a guest by Apple deserves 5 stars itself.
