In her first comedy special, Celeste Barber brings her hilarious Instagram personality to life in her debut stand-up comedy special. In Challenge Accepted, Barber talks about getting famous, having a hot husband, and not drinking Flat Tummy Tea. Though she got her start on the Internet, Celeste Barber proves she is made for the big stage!
A viral Internet personality, Celeste Barber rose to fame by imitating celebrity Instagram posts. In 2018, Barber released her book, Challenge Accepted!: 253 Steps To Becoming An Anti-It Girl, which garnered praise from celebrities like Reese Witherspoon. With an editorial interview in Vogue and front row seats at New York Fashion Week, it’s clear that Barber’s impact reached far beyond the screen.
“From Instagram celeb, to stand-up comedian, Celeste has taken her comedy talents to the next level with this special,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, Founder and CEO of Comedy Dynamics.
