Get your best erotic clichés at the ready, folks: the live show of cult podcast ‘My Dad Wrote A Porno‘ is headed Down Under.

Jamie Morton, James Cooper and Alice Levine are bringing the live stage show to Australia and New Zealand in August this year, which includes a NBD performance at the friggin’ Sydney Opera House. Oh my stars.

For those of you unfamiliar with the phenomenon that is Belinda Blinked, it’s a series of erotic (and self-published) novels written by Jamie’s dad, under the pseudonym Rocky Flintstone.

It follows the thrilling adventures of sales representative Belinda), as she fucks her way through half the kitchenware industry in the interest of selling pots and pans.

The podcast literally consists of Jamie, James and Alice reading out a chapter each episode, and coming to grips with Rocky’s shaky grasp of erotica, sex, and the basic structures of storytelling in general. And it’s the overall badness of the writing that makes the podcast so side-splittingly funny.

For example, Belinda Blinked has introduced us to a number of new and horrifying ways to describe our genitals, such as “the two girls started to excite each other and soon their respective vaginas were wet and steaming”, “her tits hung freely, like pomegranates”, and that old classic, “vaginal lids”

It also contains some wildly boring prose (“The conference room was upmarket. Tony liked to impress those customers who visited the offices and one of the best ways was decent meeting spaces”) and completely unnecessary exposition (“I mean, in chapter two – at the risk of giving too much away – Belinda gets into a car, gets out of a car and then walks to a meeting room. That’s the entire chapter,” Jamie told The Guardian last year).

Wild.
