Irish Dad Writes A Porno, Becomes A Podcast, Now A TV Show

Podcast My Dad Wrote A Porno is becoming a TV show.

Imagine if your Dad wrote a ‘dirty book’! Most people would try to ignore it and pretend it had never happened – but not Jamie Morton. Instead, the English born son of an Irish father decided to read it to the world in this hilarious comedy podcast. With the help of his friends, James Cooper and BBC Radio 1’s Alice Levine, Jamie reads a chapter a week and discovers more about his father than he ever bargained for.

Jamie Morton’s 60-year-old Dad emigrated to Britain as a young man and after he decided to write an ‘erotic novel’ he asked his son to have a read..as you do. His Dad self-published the book and put it on Amazon asking for just 0.99p. Not wanting to give his real name away, understandably, he goes by the grand moniker of Rocky Flintstone. The full title of the book should give you enough insight of what to expect of the book:

Belinda Blinked; 1 A modern story of sex, erotica and passion. How the sexiest sales girl in business earns her huge bonus by being the best at removing her high heels’. 

The podcast has become a huge success and the gang have been touring around the world performing to sold-out shows.

Now HBO has announced they are going to make the book into a comedy special set to air next year.

“My Dad Wrote a Porno shows the extent of just how embarrassing dads can be, in the best possible way,” Nina Rosenstein, executive vice president of HBO programming, told Deadline.

“James, Jamie and Alice transformed a very awkward situation into an undeniably hilarious experience that we’re excited to share with our audience.”

 

The team behind the hit series said: “We’re over the moon and honoured that HBO has decided to help bring Rocky Flintstone’s bad dad-rotica to the world – what are they thinking?!

“The response to the live show has been incredible so far, so we can’t wait for more people to see it.”

The podcast is followed by famous fans including Daisy Ridley, Elijah Wood and Michael Sheen.

Just this week they received a warm welcome in Vicar St.
