Fine, Thanks explores and exploits 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.

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.
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.

After two sold out world tours, Barber is seizing the opportunity to get to travel to New Zealand again. Her one woman show, Challenge Accepted premiered in Sydney in 2017, before touring the UK and Europe and enjoying three sell-out seasons in the US – including being filmed for her first Showtime special. Her 2018 memoir, Challenge Accepted, was shortlisted for the ABIA 2019 Biography Book of the Year.

An acclaimed actor, author, comedian and podcaster, Barber has carved her own niche on social media.

Celeste Barber will bring her new tour Fine, Thanks to New Zealand in May 2022. Tickets are on sale via
