Comedy Podcast Recommendations – My Dad Wrote a Porno

screen-shot-2016-09-25-at-10-29-25

Yes you did read the title properly and yes IT IS a podcast. Now if your a fan of books such as 50 Shades Of Grey then this podcast probably isn’t for you however, if you are a fan of comedy and taking the Micky out of 50 shades then this really IS the podcast for you.

Meet Jamie Morton, he found out  that his 60 year old father decided to write a porno. Inspired by other books of erotica and his own fantasies he decides to write a book called Belinda Blinks. How does his son Jamie deal with teh revelation? No, he does not ignore it, instead he decides to sit down around his kitchen table and read a chapter each week to the public and to his friends who join him – James Cooper and BBC Radio 1’s Alice Levine.

HIs father writes the name under another name, an authors name of Rocky Flintstone which already creates hilarity and sort of already tells the listener the level as to what they are about to hear. The basic thing to know about the story is that it follows the main character Belinda, starting work at a sales company that sells pots and pans. Story wise thats all you need to know.

Now the thing that makes this podcast hilarious is that as Jamie reads the book, his friends will intercept and criticise or discuss what they hear and the reactions and outcomes are very funny. Now, as the title of the podcast states, it is a book about porn so it is explicit in its descriptions about porn so if you are looking for something clean, then this really isn’t the podcast for you.

This podcast has got bigger and bigger by the minute, it is at the top of the podcast chart and has millions of listeners worldwide including actors such as Elijah Wood. The podcast now has a mini episode on Thursdays called Footnotes  which is extra content about the book. The trio who present the show are now even doing live readings in theatres across London.
