Chicken dippers and blue drinks at the ready because Athletico Mince will be back in the North East to perform a pair of much anticipated live shows at Newcastle’s Tyne Theatre & Opera House on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th March.

Athletico Mince is Bob Mortimer and Andy Dawson’s wildly successful football podcast that isn’t really about football. If you’re looking for in-depth tactical analysis of the weekend’s games, you’re definitely in the wrong place.

This is a rare opportunity for fans to hear much loved characters such as Woy ‘Warhammer’ Hodgson and Steve McClaren performed live. With the promise of a Scottish song or two and perhaps even an appearance by the Alderman, this is a show that regular listeners are not going to want to miss.

If you haven’t a clue what any of this means, don’t worry. Athletico Mince has all of the trademark wit and randomness that you would expect from any episode of Big Night Out or Shooting Stars. If you’ve ever picked up a copy of Viz and laughed at its brand of Northern toilet humour, chances are you’ll enjoy this. Just don’t come along expecting to hear too much about the football.
