Stavros Parrish is doing a show Lancaster Grand Theatre Sounds like it could be decent.
Saturday 13th February at 7:30pm at
Enjoy the life and times of Steve Parrish (Stavros) which provide a completely different, colourful, humorous and, at times daring portrayal of this man’s career. Steve Parrish raced at the highest level of motorcycle racing, with his highest finish coming in the 1977 500cc Grand Prix season, as team mate to that year’s champion Barry Sheene.
Steve then dabbled with sports car racing before moving to truck racing “because it was less painful than riding bikes” where he won 5 European Truck Racing titles. Steve was the BBC commentator for Moto GP and is now a pundit for BTs coverage of the sport. He has been commentating since 1988, but he is equally famous in the world of motorsport for his pranks, and the real reason for this show.
With a life full of scrapes, near misses and funnies, including riding Barry Sheen’s bike to qualifying for the world champion, filling rooms of sports personalities with live frogs, and jumping hire cars from second floor car parks in Daytona onto the beach.
The list is endless and all will be revealed in a non-stop show, bringing smiles to audience’s faces. His antics have led to a visit from “Beadles About” and have also seen him locked up in a Hong Kong jail for blowing up a brothel.
Joining Steve on stage and leading the proceedings will be Steve’s daughter Frankie, who has lived with her father’s antics and the embarrassment’s that it brings.
Join Steve as he delivers a fantastically funny evening of true life fun stories who knows, you may even get some ideas !
