Bob Mortimer brings comedy podcast to the Epstein

COMEDY legend Bob Mortimer teams up with Andy Dawson to present Athletico Mince live on stage at The Epstein Theatre on Monday 29th May. After one year, 41 episodes and over five million listens, Bob Mortimer and Andy Dawson are taking their hit comedy podcast on the road, with a host of all-new songs, stories, smart clothes, clear speaking and more. Following sold-out shows in Newcastle, Manchester, Leeds and London, the duo will be now bring Athletico Mince to Liverpool. What started out in March 2016 as an attempt to record a football podcast soon turned into something far stranger and more random after Bob and Andy realised that their footballing opinions actually had zero credibility. Subjects covered each week include the lifestyle of former England manager Steve McClaren (including his love of beans on toast and the gastric struggles of his yellow snake Casper), Robson Green’s doomed attempts to meet Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez and Andy’s run-ins with a short-tempered Jeremy Corbyn. In keeping with the overwhelmingly non-football vibe, the podcast has also included lifestyle hacks, domestic appliance tips and meat advice, as well as a campaign to build the world’s  largest saxophone just off the A1, and a definitive guide to lifting up celebrities. More recently, Bob and Andy have lifted the lid on the Gangs Of The EPL – the secretive bullying activities between various groups of Premier League stars. The live shows will feature lots of new material from the various hit features of the podcast, along with one or two surprises. Theatre manager, Rebekah Pichilingi, said: “We are delighted to announce Athletico Mince at The Epstein Theatre. Bob Mortimer is well known as one of the best comedians around and we can’t wait to see this podcast bought to life on stage.” Date: Monday 29th May 2017 Time: 7pm and 9pm Tickets: All seats £16 To book tickets please call 0844 888 4411* or go online at www.epsteinliverpool.co.uk * or in person at The Epstein Theatre Box Office from 2pm – 6pm Monday – Thursday and 12pm-6pm Friday – Saturday. *Subject to booking fee.
