My Dad Wrote A Porno: World Tour

7PM Doors | 8PM Show

With over 50 million downloads, Hollywood fans including Elijah Wood, Daisy Ridley & Michael Sheen and rave reviews from the likes of Variety, The Guardian, GQ and Entertainment Weekly, My Dad Wrote A Porno is quite simply ‘a cultural phenomenon’ (Time Out).

Imagine if your dad wrote a dirty book. Most people would try to ignore it – but not Jamie Morton. Instead, he decided to read it to the world in this hilarious comedy podcast. With the help of his best mates, James Cooper and Radio 1 DJ Alice Levine, Jamie reads a chapter a week and discovers more about his father than he ever bargained for.

Written under his nom de porn, Rocky Flintstone, Jamie’s dad tells the compelling tale of Belinda Blumenthal as she tries to succeed in the ‘sexy’ world of the pots and pans industry. Part erotic novella, part business manual, Rocky was inspired by the success of what he calls ‘50 Colours of Grey’, and the result is the most unintentionally hilarious novel you will ever hear.

After two record breaking series, which saw them seize the number 1 spot on iTunes charts around the globe, team porno have expanded the brand beyond the podcast. 2016 saw the publication of their bestselling book and live shows based on the ubiquitous Belinda Blinked novels have sold out venues like the Sydney Opera House in minutes, crashing websites and jamming phone lines.

In addition, their one off Christmas special charted around the world, most impressively storming to the top of the UK iTunes Album chart, unseating the likes of Bruno Mars and festive favourite Michael Bublé.

Series 2 saw the addition of mid-week Footnote episodes where famous fans joined Jamie, Alice and James to discuss all things Belinda Blinked.

Guests included Hollywood megastars Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings), Daisy Ridley (Star Wars) and national treasure Michael Sheen, who lovingly compared Rocky Flintstone to William Shakespeare.

The cream of US comedy also swung by, including the Emmy nominated star of Silicon Valley Thomas Middleditch and Golden Globe winning Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex Girlfriend).

Not to be outdone, team porno also welcomed the best of British talent, from breakout comedian Joe Lycett, to podcasting royalty Dan Schreiber (host and co-creator of the QI smash hit No Such Thing As A Fish) via ubiquitous reality superstar Charlotte Crosby.

Even Dr Tamal Ray from The Great British Bake Off popped in to confirm that it is, in fact, impossible to grab a woman by the cervix.

As a result, the podcast has proved to be the ultimate guilty pleasure in celebrity circles. Whether it be actor Nicholas Hoult converting rugby legend James Haskell at a party, rower Helen Glover crediting Belinda Blinked for winning Olympic gold in Rio 2016 or YouTube queen bee Zoella admitting her addiction to millions of fans through numerous vlog posts, My Dad Wrote A Porno is the podcast everyone is talking about.
