My Dad Wrote A Porno at Belfast Book Festival

If you haven’t heard of the sensational My Dad Wrote a Porno podcast where have you been, hiding under a rock? Belinda Blinks the erotic novel written by Rocky Flinstone is destined for the best-seller list but not for the reasons you may think.

On the podcast Jamie Morton reads out chapters of an erotic novel  his 60 year-old dad has penned. (I should add for Northern Irish readers, his dad is from Armagh and yes every so often a few random NI phrases pop up but please don’t blame us for some of the illegible sentences).  Jamie is joined by his friends James Cooper and Alice Levine (the radio one DJ). Who offer some constructive criticism with comedic effect. The series has a cult following of “perverts” who hang on every descriptive, grammatically incorrect moment. I proudly say I am Pervert.

Last night the trio came to Belfast on a wet summers day as part of the Belfast Book Festival. They sold out the Mandela hall in Queens Students Union and brought the podcast to life with the help of a few tins of gin and tonic, a PowerPoint presentation on the female reproductive system and of course Rocky’s fiction.

James and co introduced the crowd to a lost chapter of the Belinda Blinks series. With some amazingly descriptive furniture, a group of regional sales managers, a set of loaded dice (die ;)) and one leather trouser suit the audience sat in awe listening as Belinda want on the adventure of a lifetime.

Strictly for over 18s and not a show I would take my mum too. My Dad wrote a porno LIVE is fantastically funny and stomach turning at the same time. The live show unedited and full of audience interaction is a fun ride through the podcasts, with some friendly banter and slagging the Belfast crowd loved it.
