Hailed as the “Australian Queen of Comedy,” Celeste Barber’s original celebrity parody Instagram account has attracted more than 8.1 million followers. In 2019, she released her best-selling book Challenge Accepted, and she was also seen on the 2019 Showtime special of the same name.
In 2020, Barber won the AACTA (The Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards) for Favorite Comedy Performer of the Decade, and in 2021, took home a Webby Special Achievement award. She won the ‘Funniest Lady on Instagram’ Award 2017 on WhoHaha.com; a digital platform co-founded by actor, director and producer Elizabeth Banks, which showcases women in comedy around the world. In 2019, she was included in Variety Magazine ‘Variety’s 10 Comics to Watch’ and she hosted the 5th Annual Daily Front Row Awards at the Beverly Hills hotel where the best in fashion in Hollywood are honored.
She is currently shooting Wellmania, her new Netflix comedic drama series based on the novel Wellmania: Misadventures in the Search for Wellness. The show centers around human tornado Liv (Barber) and a major health crisis that forces her to rethink her ‘live fast die young’ attitude. Throwing herself body-first into a wellness journey, she tries everything from the benign to the bizarre in an attempt to get well quickly, and reclaim her old life.
In the summer of 2019, when Australia was ravaged by extreme bushfires, Barber raised $51 million to support the Rural Fire Service (RFS) and Brigades Donation Fund. Her fundraiser drew global attention and broke records. It helped fund much-needed upgrades and provide high-tech equipment to ensure fires are better prepared for the next bushfire season.
Barber currently resides in Australia.
