The Aussie comedian went viral on social media with her #celestechallengeaccepted photos and now she's bringing her self-deprecating brand of humour to Kiwi audiences.

Australian comedian and actress Celeste Barber is heading to New Zealand in 2022 with a brand new comedy show. The show, called Fine, Thanks will be touring for three nights in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch in May next year.

Barber shot to social media fame a few years ago when she started the hashtag #celestechallengeaccepted, where she parodies famous celebrities ‘perfect’ social media photos.

Barber last visited New Zealand in 2019 with her sold-out show Challenge Accepted and says she’s excited to return with a brand new show.

“I’ve been stuck inside staring at a wall for the best part of two years, so trust me when I say I’m ready to pack a suitcase, reacquaint myself with what the inside of a plane looks like and get back on stage,” says Celeste,

“Everyone in my house is sick to death of listening to me bang on so it’s time to find some new ears to chew off. Plus, mama’s got bills to pay.”

Fine, Thanks is said to explore “everything from celebrity sex toys to why hot girls can’t dance and details the giddy euphoria and brutal devastation of being invited to Coachella – the same year it was cancelled.”

As well as the New Zealand destinations, the comedian will also be bringing her Fine, Thanks show across Australia.
