Dads can be embarrassing. But it's fair to say Jamie Morton's dad did something a bit more embarrassing than most. He wrote a porno — well, an erotic novel — under the pen name Rocky Flintstone.

So Morton launched a podcast, My Dad Wrote a Porno, in which he invited two of his best friends to his house to read them his dad's book, page by page, chapter by chapter and critique it. 

My Dad Wrote a Porno has been running for three seasons and has been downloaded more than 50 million times. Tomorrow, Jamie and his two friends Alice Levine and James Cooper will be reading an exclusive chapter of his dad's erotic literature live at the Montreal Just for Laughs festival. 

q guest host Ali Hassan spoke to Morton from our London, England studio about what possessed him to make his Dad's erotic writing so public.
