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

Australia will get two chances to laugh (and cringe) with Jamie Morton this year when the My Dad Wrote A Porno star brings his podcast down under. 

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 talks and live readings hitting Australia between May and August.

On Saturday May 27 Jamie will speak to writer and television presenter Ben Jenkins about the hilarious (and disturbing) world of My Dad Wrote a Porno as part of the Sydney Writers' Festival. Tickets can be purchased from Rosyln Packer Theatre

Fans can then get a second dose of My Dad Wrote A Porno when the live show heads to the Sydney Opera House on Saturday August 19, with hosts Morton, Cooper and Levine promising a night of squeamish good fun.

Don’t forget your pomegranates!
