I reckon I'm probably in the minority, but, despite having given it a good go due to a fondness for Bob Mortimer and everyone else apparently loving it, I just can't get on with Athletico Mince at all.

A microscopic cog in his catastrophic plan, designed and directed by his red right hand.

Be interesting, as in a now deleted tweet Mortimer recently bemoaned Boro's recruitment strategy saying they should be looking more at players like Freeman

The peter Beardsley stuff is pretty funny other than that it’s cack and I’m a massive fan of shooting stars etc

Bob Mortimer and Viv Reeves stopped being funny a very very long time ago sadly.

They're embarrassing on 8 out 10 Countdown. Totally unfunny and visibly annoyed when they're upstaged but much funnier fresher comedians.

i doubt if either of them have ever been annoyed about anything in their lives (i exaggerate, but still). Lovely, lovely people the pair of them. And still funny - but as you know, funniness is completely objective, so saying anything isn't funny or is funny is merely personal opinion and can never be fact. Bob in particular an absolute joy of a man and a giant of British comedy - you only have to look at how younger comics revere him to see that. Bob on Taskmaster was still the freshest, funniest person they've had on in all their series imo.

Bare bones.

I'm with you Antti - happily listen to Bob waffle on about anything.
Some inspired characters in these Mince podcasts and can excuse the odd dud.
Has given me some good laughs stuck in traffic on commute home and that'll do for me.

Count me in for the Bob Mortimer love in - he’s a proper national treasure, clearly a top bloke, and I’ve loved Athletico Mince. Bit hit n miss and the other guy is no comic genius, but it’s had me crying with laughter in the car. The Peter Beardsley stuff is amazing

They were taking the piss out of us employing McLaren to achieve 15th place in this latest one - where else would you get a surreal comic tale about QPR’s Lee Hoos era?

Used to play against a football team at uni called Unatletico Madras, which i thought was good...

Ps Tried listening, they've got to be the least funny most ggravating people i've ever heard. Actually painful.

Truly awful.

Speaking stupid cr@p in a silly voice is the opposite of humour.

Must admit taking the piss out of us and our hankering for a manager to take us to 15th place did make me laugh. Very observant, makes you realise what everyone else probably thinks of us.

Holloway in a crazed cider haze, hahaha.

Have also tried this a few times after being recommended it and just cant get on with it. Just find it intensely irritating but thats just my opinion. I switched this off before the holloway bit was finished!

I saw Bob Mortimer in an episode of Would I lie to you the other day (it may have been a repeat) but he was hilarious.

Bah. Subjective.

Task Master is excruciatingly unfunny - but desperately desperately trying. Perfect for a berkish channel called Dave. It's for the kind of people that found Jeremy Clarkson and 'The Hampster' funny. Miraculously the new presenters of Top Gear manage to be even less funny.

Other not funny things -

Mrs Brown's Boys
Big Bang Theory
Two and a Half Men.

Taskmaster is about as far from Top Gear as you can get, so a weird comparison. No side to it, not nasty, great entertainment and silliness. Can't imagine there's a huge crossover between the two shows.
I don't find 3 of those other 4 things funny either, however, so you're not a total moron ;)
Which shows do you make again? Is it just docs, or have you made some Mel-Brooks-level comedy too?

Bare bones.

I'm being a tit as usual Annti. Taskmaster just isn't for me. Perhaps because I know someone who works on it and I don't rate his humour.

As for my shows... no comedy... some may be unintentionally though. I make documentaries. Didn't realise you knew what I did.

The net is closing in....

Ha ha.
You said it on here once and it just stuck in my mind because i know quite a few Rs in the media, so we could know each other you never know... that would be pretty weird.

'I don't rate his humour' is a lovely phrase ;)

Always cringed at Shooting Stars but as a first time listener of Athletico Mince found it amusing.

Getting angry about other people's humour is a bit joyless.

We probably do - and I'm not being unfriendly - but when you behave like I do on here, anonymity is a very good thing.
