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.
