High speed comedy as Steve Parrish reves up for Redditch's Palace Theatre

Imogen Buller 25th Mar, 2017

POP in to the Palace Theatre next month for a high-speed comedy show exploring the life and time of motorcycle champion Steve Parrish.

On Thursday (April 6), as part of his MAD Tour, Steve will discuss his different, colourful and at times daring career, alongside his daughter Frankie, who will be joining him onstage from 7.30pm.

Join Steve as he delivers an evening of true life stories full of scrapes and near misses, including riding Barry Sheen’s bike to qualify for the world championship, filling rooms of sport personalities with live frogs, and jumping hire cars from second floor car parks in Daytona onto the beach.

During his career, Steve 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.

The self-proclaimed prankster then dabbled with sports car racing before moving to truck racing “because it was less painful than riding bikes” and then became the BBC commentator for Moto GP.

He is now a pundit for BTs coverage of the sport and Steve flies his own four seat aircraft, plays golf badly, shoots clays, hosts track days and even has an entry in the Guinness Book of Records, he attends after dinner events as a guest speaker, all of which offer more opportunities and more victims.

The list is endless and all will be revealed in the non-stop show for which tickets cost £20 inclusive of booking fee and are available from http://www.redditchpalacetheatre.co.uk/ or at the box office.
