Hit podcast My Dad Wrote A Porno is coming to Bristol

Posted on: 17 May 2022

The team behind the award-winning show are taking to stages worldwide, bringing their sell-out tour to The Bristol Hippodrome at the end of the week.

 

Jamie Morton and co will be convening in Bristol for one night only on Sunday (22 May) to present My Dad Wrote A Porno Live.

 

Along with best mates James Cooper and TV and radio DJ Alice Levine, Jamie will read a ‘Lost Chapter’ from his dad’s notoriously remarkable (and outrageous) dirty book, the Belinda Blinked saga. Tickets are running very low for this show – prices range from £40.40 to £55.40.

What would you do if your dad wrote pornographic literature? Ignore it? Or would you start a podcast? Jamie Morton opted for the latter, and the result was My Dad Wrote A Porno.

 

The show quickly became a global sensation with well over 100 million downloads worldwide, earning cult status in a breakout period for the podcast format.

 

In each episode, Morton reads a new chapter of his dad’s erotic novel – under the pen name ‘Rocky Flintstone’. Co-hosts Cooper and Levine go into the session never having heard the content.

 

The seed for the project was planted when Morton’s father gave him some of the chapters to read, without telling his son what was within the pages. 

 

As the podcast grew in prominence the hosts began to invite various famous fans onto the show with Elijah Wood, Joe Lycett, Stephen Mangan, Emma Thompson, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Michael Sheen and George Ezra all making an appearance.

 

Since then, My Dad Wrote A Porno has grown and grown, being described by some as a 'cultural phenomenon'. In 2019, a HBO special was aired from the Roundhouse in London and the trio of hosts are currently finishing a live UK tour before heading to the USA and Canada.

My Dad Wrote A Porno Live will be at The Bristol Hippodrome for one night only on Sunday 22 May, tickets can be purchased HERE.
