After over 20 years cabaret experience PARISS teamed up with 'Gloria' in 1994 to create, write and star in the highly successful, and very original, ALMOST FABULOUS. Based on the hit TV series 'Absolutely Fabulous', the show was a live half-hour 'Missing Episode' of original material which successfully toured the country for three years.
Towards the end of 1995 Almost Fabulous decided to end its spectacular success when 'Gloria' retired from performing. Pariss then launched her Solo Career and continues to be in popular demand at venues from Scotland to the south coast for Corporate Events, Hen Nights and Cabaret with an act combining traditional mime and standup.

Pariss is a cult figure on University Campuses due to her regular stints as hostess/compere at a variety of Balls and functions since 1996 and regularly hosts late night showings of cult films at Arts Centres in Leicester and Nottingham.

Also in 1996 Pariss began an 18 month stint writing, producing and presenting her own hit TV series for Cable 7 TV and still regularly contributes to the channel interviewing the likes of Chris Evans, Dannii Minogue, Gemma Craven, Zoe Ball, Rhona Cameron, Graham Norton & Margarita Pracatan.

In-between regular cabaret performances Pariss has been working as a Leg Model for a tights company and has been gracing a series of Greetings Cards sold nationwide.
Pariss made her legitimate theatre debut in La Cage Aux Folles for Leicester's Little Theatre in 1997.

Most recently Pariss has been causing outrage and confusion on ITV's 'Trisha Show' (twice), Sky 1's 'Guilty', Channel 5's 'My Secret', Carton TV's 'Let's Get Beautiful' (6 shows), ITV's 'Dial A Date Ibiza 99', presented the first of the second series of 'Dial A Date', featured heavily in Channel 4's Nite Cities and is featured in the current 'Mansfield Bitter' TV and cinema commercial.
Since 1997 Pariss has hosted and compered the annual Pink Lace Festival in Nottingham as well as making appearances at the Leicester Comedy Festival, London's Pride Festival and Manchester's Mardi Gras.
