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 !

Lancaster Footlights presents John Godber’s ‘Up ‘N’ Under’ a comedy about an inept pub team from the Wheatsheaf Arms pub in a rugby league sevens competition in Kingston upon Hull in England. Ex-pro Arthur's only passions in life are his wife and rugby league. When he hears about the 'Cobblers Arms' pub team and their corrupt manager, Arthur bets his life savings with Reg Welch that he can train any team to beat them.
However, the 'Wheatsheaf Arms' can only muster a side of four whose pride lies in their unbroken record of defeat. The pitifully unfit set of men have to accept the help of a coach, who just happens to be a woman.
They have to struggle through adversity, come up triumphant and become a team. They are given a bye to the final of the competition where they have to play The Cobblers.
