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, becoming British Champion in 1976 and 5th in the 1977 500cc World Championship, as team mate to that year’s champion Barry Sheene. Barry who met Steve in 1975 is quoted as saying “if he was to set up his bike as well as his victims and had put as much effort into the bike as he did the intricate pranks he pulled on people he would certainly have been a World Champion.”
Steve is currently the BBC commentator for Moto GP and 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 Sheene’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.
Join Steve as he delivers a fantastically funny evening of true life fun stories who knows, you may even get some ideas!
