The Jeff Kristian & Julie Paid Show was an extension of Jeff’s award winning The Diva Show, featuring live singing drag comedy impersonations of famous acts and singers, starring Jeff with fellow artist Alf Short (Ashes To Ashes) as Julie Paid.
In addition to the Diva Show impersonations, this revue also featured Johnny Mathis, Boney M, Margot Fontaine, Bjork, The Weather Girls and most famously Agnetha and Frida from ABBA.
It was featured on TV for Sky Adult Channel, hosting a live fundraising event for Elton John Aids Foundation at The Royal Vauxhall Tavern in London, as well as on ITV’s Club@Vision, performing at a nightclub in Romford, Essex. In 1998, they hosted the Cabaret Stage at London Pride and worked as residential hosts at Time & Envy Nightclubs in Romford, Essex.

Julie Paid (aka Alf Short) was interviewed by Boyz Magazine in a feature called Me, Myself and I, about his career and working with Jeff.
"Julie Paid owes her misfortune to the wonderful talents of Jeff Kristian who asked me to join him on stage one night at the famous Father Red Cap, while he was doing his quick-change-on-stage show and I was his unhelpful sidekick, complete with a black satin maid’s uniform. Beautiful! We were very popular back then, believe it or not, and I did my apprenticeship under Ms Kristian. Bless him. It was the best grounding to have him as my teacher and I’m eternally grateful for all his effort, time and patience."
The South London Press ran an article to promote Jeff and Julie hosting a charity event at The Royal Vauxhall Tavern in London, raising funds for The Elton John AIDS Foundation.
"JP: It was such a fab night, just like the old days when we were all one big happy family. We had every name in the book here."
