BAFTA-nominated comedian Rachel Parris is best known for both her viral satirical segments on The Mash Report and Late Night Mash (over 100 million views), and as one of the founding cast members of the award-winning improv group Austentatious, who regularly perform to sold out crowds in London's West End.

Rachel will be bringing new show Poise to Theatre Royal Brighton, in October. A show which touches on some of life's most personal and emotional moments but expressed with lightness, occasional acidity and often a catchy refrain.

Rachel said: 

"This show is going to be a love letter to musical comedy – there'll be standup, there'll be satire, but I'm going back to where I started – at the piano singing funny songs - it's what I'm best at .. " 

In 2022, Rachel published her first book Advice From Strangers: Everything I Know From People I Don't Know, which was praised by Richard Osman as "warm witty and wise"

Rachel is a founding member of acclaimed improv show Austentatious, which has toured nationally, enjoyed multiple sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe and has a weekly West End residency at the Arts Theatre, recently extended due to demand and booking until July 2024.

Rachel has taken many critically acclaimed solo shows to the Edinburgh Fringe, London's Bloomsbury Theatre and Soho Theatre, and on tour.
