For the first time in New Zealand, spend an evening with Michael Parkinson, live on stage.
Relive the best of his guests and their greatest moments on screen.

Multi-awarding winning media personality Michael Parkinson has entertained audiences across New Zealand, Australia and the UK for over 40 years; from journalist to television and radio presenter, Michael is an international celebrity in his own right. Now, the legendary chat show host shares his greatest moments, live on stage, supported by video clip highlights from his career, in his one man show. Parky – The One Man Show will commence his tour on 13 November.
Sharing with the audience his love of music and sport, Parky – The One Man Show is a charming, humorous account of the events of Michael’s fascinating life.

Following the successful releases in 2008 of his autobiography Parky – My Autobiography and CD My Life in Music, Michael now reveals his own story live on stage with the same witty, easy manner that has kept audiences captivated across generations.

In an intimate conversation with the audience, Michael reminisces about some of the most memorable moments of his celebrated career. Supported by video clips, his favourite music, as well as readings from his own work, Michael eloquently weaves the enthralling story of his life as a renowned journalist.

Having interviewed more than 3,000 of the world’s most famous people over 800 shows Michael is celebrated for his entertaining style and exceptional insight. He has sung with Bing Crosby, danced with Billy Connolly and Will Smith, played a love scene with Bette Davis, and had his knee touched by Renee Zellweger, Sandra Bullock, Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kylie Minogue and Dame Edna Everage, to mention but a few sex symbols who have felt irresistibly drawn to his left knee.
