More dates have been added to the successful stage tour of former 500GP racer, BBC commentator and well-known practical joker Steve Parrish.

The MAD tour – which stands for My Adolescent Dad – is a stage show that features Parrish and his daughter Frankie and they cover the early life and times of the ex-racer through the years where he was best mates with Barry Sheene and raced to a British championship title in 1976 and fifth in the world championship 500GP title race in 1977. 

Sheene famously said of Parrish: “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.”

The press release about the MAD tour explains: “With a life full of scrapes, near misses and funnies, including riding Barry Sheene’s bike to qualifying for the world championship, 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! His antics have led to a visit from "Beadles About" and have also seen him locked up in a Macau jail for blowing up a brothel. 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.

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, for example being driven to school in a car which number plate reads "PENI5" and on occasions in a hearse.”
