GLOBAL HIT PODCAST MY DAD WROTE A PORNO EXTENDS INTERNATIONAL TOUR WITH SHOWS IN SCANDINAVIA AND IRELAND

MWDAP_resize

It was announced today (Tuesday 20th March) that the team behind the smash hit podcast My Dad Wrote A Porno have extended their international tour with shows in Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo and Dublin. To date, the tour has already seen the trio play Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Toronto, Boston, Washington and Chicago, ahead of 25 performances in the UK starting on the 16th April and culminating with the biggest podcast gig in history at the Royal Albert Hall on the 21st June. The news arrives as multiple shows sell-out whilst others are reaching capacity.

What would you do if your dad wrote a dirty book? Ignore it? Not Jamie Morton. He reads it to the world. Along with his best mates James Cooper and Radio 1 DJ Alice Levine, Jamie reads the ‘lost chapter’ from his dad’s notoriously brilliant Belinda Blinked saga.

With over 100 million global downloads, spawning a best-selling book and converting Hollywood megastars Elijah Wood, Michael Sheen and Daisy Ridley into mega-fans, My Dad Wrote A Porno has become ‘a cultural phenomenon’ (The Sunday Times) and recently scooped the prestigious European Lovie Award. Series 4 will be released later this year and TV and motion picture adaptations are all being developed.

Tickets for the Scandinavian shows go on pre-sale today and are on general sale on Thursday 22nd March at 10am, whilst tickets for Dublin are on general-sale today via www.mydadwroteaporno.com  (all other tickets are available here now)
