For years, millions of BBC TV’s Top Gear fans were kept in suspense about the identity of ‘The Stig’ - the mysterious expert racing driver with a mirrored visor concealing his face. He’s TV’s best kept secret ever, but now we all know his name – he’s lovable Cockney, Perry McCarthy.
Theatre audiences at select UK venues have the chance to meet Perry McCarthy in person and ask questions during his one man show An Audience with The Original Stig, Perry McCarthy. Theatre goers will hear Perry’s tales of what really happened behind the scenes at TV’S Top Gear and all about his secret life as The Stig.
In this unique entertaining evening, Perry will reveal how, against the odds, his passion for speed lead to a racing career Formula One, misadventures at 200 miles per hour and his comic adventures with Michael Schumacher, Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Raikkonen, Nigel Mansell, Murray Walker and, of course, Jeremy Clarkson!
