‘My Dad Wrote A Porno’ podcast team to tour the US

The run of dates kicks off in Los Angeles tonight (February 22)

The team behind My Dad Wrote A Porno are bringing the hit podcast to the US for a series of live dates.

TV executives Jamie Morton and James Cooper created the show in 2015 alongside radio and TV presenter Alice Levine. It was inspired by Morton discovering his father had written a series of erotic books about a saucepan saleswoman called Belinda Blumenthal.

My Dad Wrote A Porno live shows have already taken place in the UK, including a slot at Latitude Festival, as well as further afield in the likes of Australia and New Zealand. Now, the trio will bring it to an American audience, where they kick off a run of dates tonight (February 22).
