The brains behind this ridiculously funny podcast are coming to Australia for a night of squeamish good fun

What would you do if you found out your dad wrote a porno? Would you ignore its very existence? Would you bring it up with him? Or would you, say, create a podcast with two of your friends and read out chapters to the wider world? Let’s just say, Jamie Morton made the right decision.

The My Dad Wrote A Porno podcast is like a filthy book club, where listeners get a section of the devilishly funny Belinda Blinked erotic novel dissected by the author’s incredulous son and his friends James Cooper and Alice Levine.

Jamie’s 60-year-old father (who – no joke – penned the book under the moniker Rocky Flintstone) was sincere in his approach to later-in-life self-publication, but the resulting novel is a trainwreck of clumsy and weird descriptions of sexual situations, with a vague plotline about the goings-on in the super sexy world of pots and pans sales. Basically, it’s a disaster – but a disaster filled with spit-take worthy prose.

Launching in 2015 with readings from Rocky Flintstone's first book, the series has been a runaway success, boasting 50-million-plus downloads worldwide. After the release of Belinda Blinked 2 halfway through last year, the My Dad Wrote A Porno team has decided to take the show on the road with a series of live readings hitting Australia in August.

The My Dad Wrote A Porno live show is headed to Sydney Opera House on Saturday August 19, with hosts Morton, Cooper and Levine promising a night of squeamish good fun.

Tickets go on sale 10am Monday February 27. Don’t forget your pomegranates!
