Scene News: My Dad Wrote a Porno – Live Podcast National Tour

Due to overwhelming demand, EXTRA SHOWS in Sydney and Melbourne have been added to the smash-hit comedy podcast MY DAD WROTE A PORNO live tour which is headed to Australia in August.

With more than 50 million downloads, the  series in which Jamie Morton reads out chapters from the erotic books his 60-year-old Dad has written, joined by his friends James Cooper and Alice Levine, will tour its live incarnation to  hear the trio opening a brand-new chapter that you can only hear LIVE.
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, he decided to read it to the world. The hilarious result is a hit comedy podcast  and now a stage show.
With the help of his friends, Cooper and BBC Radio 1’s Levine, Jamie reads a chapter a week and discovers more about his father than he ever bargained for. Launching in 2015, the series has been a runaway success. The podcast has 50 million-plus downloads worldwide, and has become the #1 podcast around the world, from the UK to Australia.  And its social media stats speak for themselves with more than 36,000 Twitter and 60,000 Instagram Followers, and Facebook Likes in excess of 22,000. My Dad Wrote A Porno is averaging 700,000 downloads weekly and has tallied more than 700 5-star reviews on iTunes. 
The series is also not without its own celebrity endorsements including Elijah Wood, who is famously a massive  fan of the podcast.
