THE team behind the smash hit podcast My Dad Wrote A Porno leave the virtual world behind this week to bring a ‘lost chapter’ of Jamie’s dad’s book to the stage of The Playhouse, live.

For those unfamiliar with the phenomenal success of the podcast My Dad Wrote A Porno, here’s a crash course: What would you do if your dad (writng under the pen name Rocky Flintstone) wrote a dirty book? Ignore it?

Not Jamie Morton. He reads it to the world: “Belinda blinked, it wasn’t a dream, the job interviewer had just asked her to remove her jacket and silk blouse...’

So begins Belinda Blinked 1, Rocky Flintstone’s now-legendary porno (sorry, erotic novel), and so began My Dad Wrote a Porno, the outrageously funny podcast begun by Rocky’s son and two friends and now adored by legions of fans

The podcast began in 2015 and now has had more than 100 million global downloads, spawning a best-selling book and converting Hollywood megastars Elijah Wood (“It’s hilarious”), Michael Sheen and Daisy Ridley into mega-fans, My Dad Wrote A Porno has become ‘a cultural phenomenon’ and recently scooped the prestigious European Lovie Award.

Series 4 will be released later this year and TV and motion picture adaptations are all being developed.

Before all that, however, Morton can be found on stage of The Playhouse tomorrow, along with his best mates James Cooper and Radio 1 DJ Alice Levine, as he reads the ‘lost chapter’ from his dad’s notoriously brilliant Belinda Blinked saga.
