My Dad Wrote A Porno Comedy Podcast Special Lands at HBO

The best of the worst erotic fiction makes for embarrassing laughs on My Dad Wrote a Porno.

You think your dad is embarrassing? Wait until you hear the dirty stories Rocky Flintstone digs up. HBO is popping the vaginal lids off bad erotic fiction as it readies the British cult comedy podcast My Dad Wrote A Porno for a comedy special in 2019. The podcast, which is hosted by Jamie Morton, James Cooper and Alice Levine, has been downloaded more than 100 million times since its launch in 2015.

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

The series was co-created by James Cooper, Jamie Morton and Alice Levine. My Dad Wrote a Porno began in 2015 after Morton discovered that his father wrote Fifty Shades of Grey-style erotic novels. Morton spends most of the podcast reading a chapter from his real-life father’s erotic “Belinda Blinked” novel series on-air to Levine and Morton to see how they react.  The series is bout Belinda Blumenthal, a sales girl at a pots and pans company who barely sleeps and yet sleeps her way to the top.

“We’re over the moon and honored that HBO has decided to help bring Rocky Flintstone’s bad dad-rotica to the world – what are they thinking?!” say Team Porno. “The response to the live show has been incredible so far, so we can’t wait for more people to see it.”
